NFL Free Agency and the NFL Draft may be my favorite part of the NFL. Free Agency is the first step to improving teams, and the draft is the second. In this article I will be looking at some of the NFL's best free agents and where I think they'll be heading next season. I'm basing these free agent rankings on this article from Pro Football Focus, https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-the-top-50-nfl-free-agents-of-2019. Note, this article and my Mock Draft do not have any correlation, I'm doing each one as completely separate articles. *I will not be explaining these signings as they all relate to team need and cap space flexibility.*
