NFL Draft Team Needs, Stock Up Stock Down

Hey now, two more months until the best day in sports (at least for this guy). With that being said, I'm going to really start updating the site with all the things you will need for the draft. I'm going to start with doing what each team needs right now. Granted, this may shift during free agency (in fact, you might as well just call this a rough draft). Anyway, here goes nothing (by the way, the list is in order of significance as far as positions go):

AFC East:

New England: CB, OLB, WR, OG
N.Y. Jets: CB, DT, OG, OT
Buffalo: OT, CB, OLB, DT
Miami: QB, CB, WR, DT

AFC North:

Pittsburgh: CB, OG, FS, OT
Baltimore: RB, OLB, OT, SS
Cleveland: OG, CB, DE, QB
Cincinnati: TE, DE, SS, OG

AFC South:

Indianapolis: OLB, DT, OG, CB
Jacksonville: SS, OLB, DE, CB
Tennessee: CB, DT, OT, DE
Houston: OT, FS, SS, RB

AFC West:

San Diego: ILB, FS, WR, DE
Kansas City: WR, ILB, OLB, OT
Denver: CB, DT, DE, OG
Oakland: EVERYTHING!...

NFC East:

Dallas: FS, OLB, OT, OG
Philadelphia: DT, OLB, DE, SS
Washington: CB, DT, DE, OG
N.Y. Giants: DT, OT, CB, OG

NFC North:

Green Bay: OT, DT, SS, DE
Chicago: SS, FS, DT, OG
Minnesota: WR, QB, OLB, OT
Detroit: QB, OT, DE, OG

NFC South:

New Orleans: OLB, DT, CB, TE
Tampa Bay: DE, DT, QB, WR
Atlanta: DT, FS, CB, OT
Carolina: ILB, FS, SS, DT

NFC West:

Seattle: OG, OT, CB, TE
San Francisco: CB, WR, DT, OG
Arizona: OLB, DT, OT, DE
St. Louis: OLB, DT, DE, TE

Also, with the drafting inching its way closer, you tend to see a ton of re-evaluations even before workouts begin. Here is now a look at the top 10 risers and the top 10 who have seen their stock plunge:

Stock Up:
1. Aaron Ross, CB, Texas
2. Levi Brown, OT, Penn St.
3. Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida
4. Charles Johnson, DE, Georgia
5. Lawrence Timmons, ILB, Florida St.
6. Marshawn Lynch, RB, California
7. Dwayne Bowe, WR, LSU
8. DeMarcus Tyler, DT, North Carolina St.
9. LaMarr Woodley, DE, Michigan St.
10. Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn

Stock Down:
1. Brady Quinn, QB, Notre Dame
2. Daymeion Hughes, CB, California
3. Robert Meachem, WR, Tennessee
4. Marcus McCauley, CB, Fresno St.
5. Joe Staley, OT, Central Michigan
6. Quentin Moses, DE, Georgia
7. Quinn Pitcock, DT, Ohio St.
