2014 Team Needs: NFC North
By Matt Horkman

Chicago Bears
After prioritizing their offense last off-season, expect Chicago to turn its attention to the defensive side of the ball. The Bears must get better in the middle of their defense, so adding depth to the interior of their defensive line is a priority, even with Henry Melton returning from injury. They also could find themselves in the market for a defensive end if Corey Wootton departs in free agency. Chicago drafted Jon Bostic in the second-round last year to be their middle linebacker of the future. He started nine of 16 games, but failed to leave a lasting impression. You can never have too many corners in the NFC North, especially with Charles Tillman slated to test free agency.

Team Needs: CB, DL, MLB, & S

Detroit Lions
Defending the passing games of Chicago and Green Bay is no easy task. This especially holds true when your secondary is a liability. The Lions would be wise to target a stud corner via the draft or free agency. Starting safety Louis Delmas could be a cap casualty, so finding a safety may take priority. Offensively, Detroit’s offensive line made major strides in 2013, so they can focus on adding pass catchers to take pressure off star receiver Calvin Johnson. With Brandon Pettigrew likely to test free agency, tight end becomes a priority. Also, finally settling on a No. 2 receiver would round out what could be one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Team Needs: CB, S, TE, & WR

Green Bay PackersB.J. Raji & Ryan Pickett
Signing cornerback Sam Shields is Green Bay’s top off-season priority, but the Packers cannot ignore the lingering problem at safety any longer. Entering the training camp with M.D. Jennings or Sean Richardson starting opposite of Morgan Burnett would be a grave mistake. Both B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett are free agents, so Green Bay must replenish the middle of their defensive line. They also may look to add competition at linebacker, as Brad Jones and Nick Perry disappointed in 2013. With the future of Jermichael Finley up in the air, the Packers find themselves in limbo at tight end.

Team Needs: DT, LB, S, & TE

Minnesota Vikings
It’s highly probable Minnesota will target a quarterback with the No. 8 overall pick in the NFL Draft. The rest of their off-season focus will shift toward the defensive side of the ball, where they may look to inject youth into an aging defensive line. There’s a chance that defensive end Jared Allen isn’t back with the team and the odds are even greater long-time defensive tackle Kevin Williams walks via free agency. The Vikings have also whiffed on several young corners, so finding a No. 1 cornerback to combat the likes of Jordy Nelson, Calvin Johnson, and Brandon Marshall needs to happen. 

Team Needs: CB, DE, DT, & QB
