10. Chicago Bears: With Jay Cutler struggling through injuries again throughout their team, they have worked to make the O-line better in front of Jay Cutler. Was it enough? Their 2012 season record was 10-6
9. Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens made a lot of changes since the Super Bowl, but they still look like strong playoff contenders after continuing to rebuild their defense through the draft. Their 2012 season record was 10-6
8. Houston Texans: GM Rick Smith had another solid draft; he was smart to draft a wide receiver to complement Andre Johnson. Their 2012 season record was 12-4
7. Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals added some toughness by signing linebacker James Harrison before the draft and brought more big-play potential by using their first two picks on tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard. Their 2012 Season record was 10-6
6. New England Patriots: It was a typical, non-flashy draft for New England. The Patriots didn't get any immediate starters, but they didn't have many pressing needs. Their 2012 Season record was 12-4
5. Green Bay Packers: They used the draft to load up on the run game in the wake of Aaron Rodgers' big contract. If the packers can stay healthy I believe they have a great shot at another Super Bowl run Their 2012 season record was 11-5
4. Atlanta Falcons: Think the Falcons wanted to improve at corner? They traded up to get Desmond Trufant, then took Robert Alford in the second round. Also, with Tony Gonzalez coming back for his final year of his contract I expect the Falcons' passing game to be a record-breaking year for this franchise.
3. San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers stocked up on draft choices for the future, but they also found an immediate starter in safety Eric Reid. Eric Reid will start right away replacing All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson who is now with Tampa Bay. Eric Reid at LSU was to believed to be the next LaRon Landry; hopefully he can finally live up to that hype in the Bay Area.
2. Denver Broncos: The Denver Broncos picked up a key receiver in the offseason with slot receiver Wes Welker. With Peyton Manning, talented wide receivers and a mean defense, the Broncos will be a Super Bowl contender.
1. Seattle Seahawks: After a great season from the Seahawks and great play from their running back Marshawn Lynch, they made it to the NFC divisional playoffs losing to the Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks used the draft to get stronger at defensive tackle and, surprisingly, running back.
