As the countdown to the 2014 NFL draft approaches the two-week mark, all 32 teams are in the midst of their final preparations to decide which prospects they will target as potential selections this year.
For the 30 NFL teams who hold first-round picks this year, the most prominent step of the preparation process is not only determining who would be an ideal Round 1 selection, but it is also about projecting which players could still be on the board at each pick.
Not every team will be able to land one of the players it covets. Some teams might move up or down the board in order to select a player they wouldn’t be able to get otherwise or to get better value on a player they could be able to select at a later slot in Round 1, or even in Round 2.
Nonetheless, in a draft class that seems as full of uncertain scenarios as ever, it’s possible that just about every team can end up with a draft pick that combines value, potential impact and addressing a need.
