Four Downs: AFC East

Time to take a look at the draft needs of the AFC East. The Patriots and Jets have specific needs, the Bills could use general depth, and the Dolphins could use an extra ten or twenty draft picks. Aaron also goes over recent draft history, looks at receivers similar to David Terrell, and plays that game that's sweeping the nation, or at least the New York Metropolitan Area: Guaranteed RB Decline Trivia.

Four Downs: NFC South

For an 11-5 team, the Falcons sure have made a lot of changes. Maybe they've been reading Football Outsiders and know they really weren't that good last year. In other NFC South news in the latest edition of Four Downs, the Panthers sure do draft well and the Saints and Bucs sure don't. Plus, who on the Frankfurt Galaxy caught the author's eye?

Four Downs: NFC North

The Bears look talented, Matt Millen looks competent, the Vikings look like a rising defense, and the Packers look down on their luck. Is this bizarro world? No, just some surprising happenings as we take a look at the NFC North.

Mike Tanier takes us out to the NFC West, where the contenders are trying to make the modest improvements that could lead to a division title.
