With NFL free agency slowing down, teams are in the middle of setting their draft boards for the 2012 NFL draft. No team filled all of its roster holes in free agency, so where are the areas of weakness for each roster heading into the draft?
Here are the top six needs for every NFL team leading into the draft, broken up by division. The AFC will be released Thursday, while the NFC comes out Friday.
Top needs:2. Wide receiver: There are some complementary receivers on this roster, but the Browns don't have anything close to a difference-maker at this position. Greg Little is their best receiver, but at best he is a No. 2. As a group, it lacks consistent separation and it rarely gets deep. A vertical WR with speed would really upgrade this offense.
1. Quarterback: Right now, their options at QB are starter Colt McCoy and veteran backup Seneca Wallace, but nobody expects it to stay that way. With two first-round draft picks, they will almost surely pick a QB with one of them.
