The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft is Jan. 15 and we are two months away from the start of free agency, but it's never too early to start examining teams' potential needs and possible fits for the 2014 draft. Adjustments can always be made along the way.
Here's an early look at the NFC South, where the silver lining for Atlanta fans coming off a disappointing season is the Falcons pick No. 6 overall. It will also be interesting to see what Tampa Bay does with the No. 7 overall pick. New coach Lovie Smith reportedly has the final say over all personnel matters, and the Buccaneers have yet to name a new general manager.
