Check out how the NFL teams look after free agency as we turn our focus ahead to the NFL draft. -- Dan Schneier
32. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars were very active in free agency and made major improvements on both sides of the ball. However, there are still major question marks about their offensive personnel, and that is a worrisome sign for young QB Blake Bortles, who has already struggled with pocket presence.
31. Tennessee Titans
The Titans made strides toward rebuilding their defense this offseason, but there are still concerns all over the offense. Whoever plays QB in 2015 could be forced to attempt a lot of passes.

30. Cleveland Browns
The Browns entered free agency with the third-most salary cap space and exited it having spent big money on Josh McCown, Dwayne Bowe and Brian Hartline. In every move along the way, GM Ray Farmer’s moves have been somewhat risky.

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers are still paying for recent free-agent blunders, but they managed to fill a couple of their holes. The issue is that this roster has more than just a couple of holes. Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota aside, this rebuild could take some time.

28. Oakland Raiders
The Raiders’ free-agent plan entailed spending a lot of money on some questionable contracts (Nate Allen, Trent Richardson), but they did manage to find Derek Carr some more weapons (Michael Crabtree, Roy Helu). There is upside for this team to take a step forward.
27. Washington Redskins
GM Scot McCloughan made major strides in his quest to rebuild one of the NFL’s worst defenses in 2014, and his next step will be to deal with the mess at QB and along the offensive line.

26. Chicago Bears
The Bears took some major steps toward rebuilding their defense, but there is still more work to be done. Even if Jay Cutler returns to his 2013 form, the rest of the roster makes it difficult to envision the Bears making the playoffs.

25. New Orleans Saints
The Saints needed to clear cap space -- and sending tight end Jimmy Graham away for one of the NFL’s best centers in Max Unger was not a bad way to do it. The Saints will need to hit on a couple key impact defenders in the draft if they want to become a contender again.
24. Carolina Panthers
Panthers GM Dave Gettleman had another slow offseason as he continues to recover from the epic salary cap mess that was handed to him. The Panthers will struggle to stay competitive if they can’t find a solution at both starting OT spots.

23. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons didn’t make a splash in free agency. They’ll need to find an impact pass rusher and more offensive line help for Matt Ryan if they want to compete in 2015.
22. San Francisco 49ers
The departures of Frank Gore, Mike Iupati and retirement of Patrick Willis (and his replacement Chris Borland) leave huge voids. Colin Kaepernick, who was sacked 52 times last year, will need better protection in 2015 in order to emerge as a winning quarterback again.

21. New York Jets
The Jets rebuilt their defense in new coach Todd Bowles’ image, and he has enough talent to coach them into one of the NFL’s elite units. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has succeeded in new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey’s offense with less talent before. The Jets could be in line for a major turnaround.

20. Minnesota Vikings
Bringing in Mike Wallace, who is a perfect fit for Norv Turner’s vertical offensive scheme, is great news for QB Teddy Bridgewater. Head coach Mike Zimmer continues to build the defense in his image, and this team is in line to take a major step forward in 2015. Now, if they could just figure out what to do about Adrian Peterson ...
19. San Diego Chargers
The Chargers made major strides to address their most glaring need and re-build Philip Rivers’ offensive line. With rumors spreading about the Chargers’ lack of faith in his future prospects, this reassembled line could be protecting Marcus Mariota.
18. Arizona Cardinals
Carson Palmer’s recovery is key here, but adding mauling free agent OG Mike Iupati could be a sign of things to come. If the Cardinals find a way to draft or acquire -- cough Adrian Peterson -- a top RB, a more balanced offense will help them make up for what they lost on defense in free agency.
17. St. Louis Rams
In signing Nick Fairley and Akeem Ayers, the Rams added even more talent to what was already one of the league’s elite pass-rushing units. Nick Foles is certainly an upgrade over last year’s QB carousel, and finding him another offensive weapon could do wonders in helping this team make the postseason again.
16. New York Giants
After losing out on the Devin McCourty sweepstakes, the Giants spent a lot of money in free agency to fix their special teams and add players to their defensive line rotation. With another year in Ben McAdoo’s system and a receiving threat out of the backfield in Shane Vereen, the offense can take another step forward in 2015 on the heels of two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning.

15. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs managed to bring in two key offensive players (WR Jeremy Maclin and OL Ben Grubbs) and franchised their best defender (Justin Houston) despite a tricky salary cap situation. The Chiefs’ roster looks improved, but they still lack the offensive firepower to be a Super Bowl contender.

14. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals rarely spend in free agency and this year was no different. They signed former DE Michael Johnson, but they will need to find at least one more immediate impact pass rusher if they want to finally make a deep playoff run in 2015.

13. Houston Texans
Adding Vince Wilfork, combined with the good news on Jadeveon Clowney’s recovery, presents an opportunity for the Texans to become one of the elite defenses in the NFL. Can Bill O’Brien work his QB magic in with Ryan Mallet or Brian Hoyer despite the loss of Andre Johnson?

12. Buffalo Bills
The Bills retained most of their key free agents and added LeSean McCoy, Percy Harvin and Charles Clay to an offense that desperately needed a talent infusion at the skill positions. They have surrounded Matt Cassel with nearly everything he needs.

11. Detroit Lions
Losing both Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley is crushing for the Lions’ pass-rush, but acquiring Haloti Ngata should help sustain their run defense. Matt Stafford will need to take a major step forward in Year 2 in Joe Lombardi’s offensive scheme to offset the loss of interior defensive pressure.
10. Philadelphia Eagles
A new group of offensive personnel might be missing the deep threat that makes Chip Kelly’s offense tick, but they have definitely improved in the secondary. If Sam Bradford and this offensive line can finally manage to stay healthy, this team will be better than its 2014 counterpart. But it's far too early to know whether Kelly's aggressive changes will work.

9. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers’ defense has suffered some losses, highlighted by the retirement of Troy Polamalu, but after standing pat in free agency due to their salary cap situation, they will need to find two immediate impact defenders in the draft if they want to make a Super Bowl run. They are still one of the elite offensive units in the NFL.

8. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys did well to retain almost every key in-house free agent, but DeMarco Murray’s departure is going to hurt. With Greg Hardy’s looming suspension, the Cowboys should restock the defense in the early rounds and wait until the middle rounds to address the backfield in a loaded class.

7. Miami Dolphins
Investing in big-name free agents has failed the Dolphins in the past, but Ndamukong Suh is young and already one of the five most dominating defenders in the NFL. The Dolphins completely cleaned house and then restocked Tannehill’s receiving options.

6. Denver Broncos
The Broncos lost several key contributors in free agency, but the departures of OG Orlando Franklin and NT Terrance Knighton stand out the most. Without many major holes elsewhere, they are well equipped to restock the lines in the draft and compete for a Super Bowl.

5. Baltimore Ravens
It wouldn’t be a Ravens offseason without them losing a talented edge-rusher and this year was no different after Pernell McPhee bolted to the Bears. The Ravens’ roster is still stocked on defense, but they need to find more receiving options for Marc Trestman’s offense after letting go of Torrey Smith.

4. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts entered free agency with the sixth-most cap space, but how they spent it is a little puzzling. Despite falling short the last two seasons thanks to the play of their offensive and defensive lines, they invested over $10 million annually in two skill-position players. Frank Gore and Andre Johnson are still playing at a high level, but this cap should have been allocated to the trenches.

3. New England Patriots
With limited cap space, the Patriots were forced to let several key contributors walk in free agency, including Darrelle Revis and Vince Wilfork. This is the Patriot Way. In the process, they managed to find one of free agency’s best overall value signings in OLB Jabaal Sheard and they should again be one of the NFL’s best teams in 2015.

2. Green Bay Packers
The Packers once again proved the value of having a loyal and efficiently-run franchise. They managed to retain key starters Randall Cobb and Bryan Bulaga under their market value. Losing CBs Tramon Williams and Davon House is tough, but they have a track record for turning late-round cornerbacks into plus starters.

1. Seattle Seahawks
If he can stay healthy, the acquisition of Jimmy Graham gives Russell Wilson one of the best threats in the NFL down the middle of the field -- where Wilson is best. The team’s one major weakness is along the offensive line, but the Seahawks can invest in a draft that is very deep at the position.
