With the Super Bowl behind us, the offseason has officially started. Between now and the summer, the draft will take over the NFL world.
Draft season is upon us, but there are two events that will greatly impact the April event well before networks gather in Chicago: the combine and the main wave of free agency. Indianapolis will host the combine February 23-29, which will change the draft stock for highlight players. From a team perspective, free agency will change draft needs for a squad.
Assuming that the majority of currently slated free agents hit the open market as planned, we'll go pick-by-pick, predicting how teams would take in college prospects if the draft were held today, not two months from now. It's a nearly impossible task, but based on team need, positional value and positional strength, this is how the draft should be viewed right now.
