After months of buildup, the 2014 NFL draft has finally arrived. While things remain uncertain across the first round (and all three days) of the draft, pick options and team needs are beginning to come into focus.
We won’t have a great grasp of which players teams are taking until just hours before the draft, and even then chaos can (and will) ensue. But the best way to project the first round is to give options, with multiple players that the team could pick based on who’s available, what needs teams have and who the best prospects on the board are.
So, I’ve put together the top three needs for each team in the first round (the Redskins and Colts are at their final-record spots even though they won’t be picking at No. 2 and No. 26, respectively) with prospects they’ll consider with their first picks.
