NFL Draft 2011: Breaking Down Draft Needs for All 16 NFC Teams

The NFL is still mired in labor issues, but the NFL draft is still going full steam ahead as planned for late April.

What the atmosphere will be like in Radio City, or whether there will even be any players there, is still up in the air, but the 32 NFL clubs still have needs that they'll look to address at the NFL draft, like they would any other year.

Today we're going to focus on the needs of the NFC teams as they get closer to draft day and what each NFC team will focus on heading into the draft. Of course, it'll all start with the Carolina Panthers, who have the first pick in the draft and could go a number of different ways at No. 1. We've heard a number of different names attached to the Panthers, and now at least one ESPN reporter is saying the Panthers should take cornerback Patrick Peterson at No. 1.

And because of the volatility of this year's draft boards, more than others, what the Panthers do will really dictate what happens down the line, especially in the top 10.

We'll get into that, as well as breaking down who teams might be targeting as the draft gets closer, so keep it locked in for the latest from your favorite NFC team.
