With the NFL season headed in Week 11, the personnel departments are positioning their draft boards. Teams are making final tweaks to grades, gathering all reports from the scouts, and prepping for the December meetings. Upon the completion of the NFL regular season, each organization evaluates their team and creates a NEEDS LIST. This listing is from high priority to low priority. While you always draft for value, you never ever ignore team needs.
