2104 AFCN – AFCE Draft needs

4. Cleveland Browns

2013 Record: 4-12 
Team needs: QB, OG, RB 
Analysis: I will be very surprised if the Browns take any position other than a quarterback with their top pick, especially after releasing Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell during the first week of free agency. They are loaded with extra picks in this draft, and they could package a few of them to move up for a QB of their liking..


9. Buffalo Bills

2013 Record: 6-10 
Team needs: RT, LB, WR 
Analysis: The Bills are set at one tackle spot with Cordy Glenn but they could use an upgrade on the opposite side. They added Keith Rivers in free agency but he’s never lived up to his first-round billing, so LB still remains a position of need. If Sammy Watkins would somehow fall to No. 9, it would be difficult for Buffalo to pass.


15. Pittsburgh Steelers

2013 Record: 8-8 
Team needs: CB, DL, WR 
Analysis: The Steelers brought in safety help (Mike Mitchell) during the early portion of the free agency period but they need to add some youth to the cornerback spot.


17. Baltimore Ravens

2013 Record: 8-8 
Team needs: C, RT, S 
Analysis: The Ravens locked up OT Eugene Monroe to play the left side but they need to replace Michael Oher on the right side. They also need to land a starting safety to play alongside Matt Elam, last year’s top pick.


18. New York Jets

2013 Record: 8-8 
Team needs: OG, WR, CB 
Analysis: The Jets added Eric Decker in free agency but they could use another playmaker at wide receiver. Fortunately, this draft is loaded at the position and they could address other needs in the first round.


19. Miami Dolphins

2013 Record: 8-8 
Team needs: RT, OG, RB 
Analysis: Offensive tackle Branden Albert was a nice addition in free agency, but there’s still plenty of work to be done with the offensive line. The Dolphins also need to find a three-down running back.


24. Cincinnati Bengals

2013 Record: 11-5 
Team needs: DE, OL, CB 
Analysis: The Bengals must replace DE Michael Johnson and OT Anthony Collins, and they need to add some young talent to the cornerback position.


26. Cleveland Browns (from Colts)

2013 Record: 4-12 (Colts, 11-5) 
Team needs: QB, OG, RB 
Analysis: If the Browns pass on a quarterback with the fourth pick, they could grab one at 26, the pick they acquired from the Colts in the Trent Richardson trade. There are plenty of needs on offense.


29. New England Patriots

2013 Record: 12-4 
Team needs: DL, C, WR 
Analysis: The Patriots need to get younger and more explosive in their defensive line. They have some promising young wideouts but they lack someone with the potential to be a true No. 1 receiver.
