Early Grades for the NFL's Biggest Offseason Moves
USA TODAY Sports
Jadeveon Clowney is already asserting himself as a playmaker for the Houston Texans.

Every team in the NFL spent their spring trying to bring in the best talent possible through free agency and the draft, and every team has worked this summer to put its newly acquired players in the best positions possible to succeed.
