2013 NFL Draft team needs

James Lang-US PRESSWIRE

With the NFL Draft just around the corner, take a look at where each team needs to focus to improve its roster

The NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday night, and every team can improve its roster, from the Kansas City Chiefs holding the No. 1 overall selection to the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens picking at No. 32.

There has already been a lot of action this offseason in the free agent market, and there is sure to be more in the coming months, but the draft is the often the best opportunity for teams to find long-term solutions at positions of need. With that in mind, we took a look at each team and what their biggest needs are going into the draft.
