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 on Thursday, while the NFC comes out on Friday.


Indianapolis Colts

Top needs:
1. Quarterback: It's a foregone conclusion that the Colts will take Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in the draft, but until it happens, QB will be their top need.

2. Wide receiver: There has been a fire sale at this position, with Pierre Garcon off to Washington and Anthony Gonzalez now in New England. The Colts surprisingly re-signed veteran Reggie Wayne, but a starter who can stretch the field is needed early in the draft.
