NFL Teams' Pre-Draft Needs

Onion Sports thoroughly examines the major needs of some NFL teams heading into the 2013 NFL Draft:

Kansas City Chiefs:

  • Young, mobile quarterback to replace Alex Smith midway through the season
  • Only eight to 10 pieces of chicken away from fully satisfying Andy Reid

Jacksonville Jaguars:

  • Superstar kicker to build franchise around
  • Could add players at the 52 roster spots where they need the most help
  • Modern stadium in Los Angeles

Oakland Raiders:

  • Whatever, it doesn’t fucking matter

Detroit Lions:

  • Find solid backup assholes to add depth to core of dirty, piece-of-shit cheap shot artists
  • Another player who never will get ball to line up opposite of Calvin Johnson
  • Add speed to secondary with brand-new bikes for the defensive backs

Buffalo Bills:

  • Reliable 10-foot-tall receiver to catch Kevin Kolb’s routinely overthrown passes
  • Way less pressing problems
  • Veteran leadership to cut Kevin Kolb and admit this all was a huge fucking mistake

New York Jets:

  • Stick to formula of finding young, promising players and running their careers into ground
  • Overrated cornerback
  • Goddamn miracle

Dallas Cowboys:

  • Front office just gave a new six-year, $108 million contract extension to Tony Romo, so they clearly know what they’re doing and don’t need anyone’s help

Chicago Bears:

  • Beloved middle linebacker who was the leader on defense and face of franchise for 13 seasons
  • Nasty, mean offensive tackle willing to deprive millions of the pure, unadulterated joy of watching Jay Cutler getting smashed into the ground

Minnesota Vikings:

  • Two or three more Adrian Petersons
  • Career-ending injury to Christian Ponder
  • Greg Jennings to lose about three years off his age

Green Bay Packers:

  • Dependable running back capable of breaking 30 or 40 tackles every play
  • Sign overpriced free agent if they want to stay competitive during important offseason
  • Another big, soft, and cuddly offensive lineman

Denver Broncos:

  • Every down running back who can convincingly pretend to take a hand-off from Peyton Manning 55-60 plays a game
  • Pass-rushing defensive end to help Von Miller celebrate sacks
  • Quality backup neck

New England Patriots:

  • Stockpile picks, as there’s no way Belichick can get by with any fewer than eight new tight ends
  • New little best buddy for Tom Brady
  • Depth in secondary to pacify Vince Wilfork’s ravenous appetite during long drives

San Francisco 49ers:

  •  

Baltimore Ravens:

  • Could use a franchise quarterback
  • Solid replacements for Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin, Matt Birk, Dannell Ellerbe, Cary Williams, and Paul Kruger, so this should really be a cinch
