After the longest season in NFL history, the NFC West will head into the NFL draft season as the most successful division in the league. Here is one NFL Draft need for each team. 

The NFL playoffs are in full force which means it is now the NFL draft season for most of the league. The NFC West saw three of their teams make it into the postseason, with two of them advancing past the Wild Card round.

The Seattle Seahawks were the only team to not make the postseason, but they still won seven games. Though the division was ultimately successful collectively, there are some glaring needs on all four teams.

As it stands right now, there are no coaching or front office changes on any of these teams so it should be easier to predict how they will address this offseason. That being said, predicting what NFL teams will do is almost impossible. What is possible however is highlighting what NFL teams need on their current rosters.

This past offseason we saw all four teams improve with additions that they made. The Arizona Cardinals added some highly talented veterans such as defensive lineman JJ Watt and wide receiver AJ Green.

The Los Angeles Rams added star quarterback Matthew Stafford to command their offense. The San Francisco 49ers added the highly talented quarterback Trey Lance in the first round of the draft, as well as getting star pass rusher Nick Bosa back from injury and the Seattle Seahawks added tight end Gerald Everett from the rival Rams.

Besides the Seahawks, all of the teams in the NFC West improved in 2021. Obviously, it takes more than one or two offseason additions to make a drastic difference in a team’s success, but sometimes it’s a step in the right direction. Let’s take that step for each one of these teams to ensure they improve in 2022 as well.
