player. 52. Among those key losses expected in the drive to retain Demaryius in Denver is tight end Julius Thomas.  There is no denying he’s a difference-maker and a touchdown machine but he also is expendable due to his injury concerns.  Even so, the Oakland Raiders make perfect sense because they have the money, Thomas grew up as a fan of them and he would fill a key need on offense.. FS. New England. Devin McCourty. 6

7. player. 47. Bill Belichick is not a fool.  He understands the defensive turnaround for the New England Patriots was keyed by the arrival of Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis.  Keeping him in place would maintain that, but it’s going to cost a lot.  Still, the Patriots will find a way to make it work.. CB. New England. Darrelle Revis

player. 87. It’s still up in the air whether Greg Hardy will return to action in 2015 pending his trial for domestic violence charges.  Still, if he is able to make a comeback then the Carolina Panthers have expressed interest in bringing him back.  He was a key to their defense that was sorely missed this past season.. DE. Carolina. Greg Hardy. 8

46. Running the ball and stopping the run were huge issues for the Indianapolis Colts again in 2014.  They need a serious talent upgrade in those areas.  Being able to get rushing champion DeMarco Murray behind Andrew Luck would be an easy selling point for all involved and change the landscape of the AFC.. RB. Dallas. DeMarco Murray. 9. player

The past few years were tough ones for Jason Pierre-Paul but he really began to rediscover his immense potential down the stretch for the New York Giants.  Losing him now when they already have so few pass rushers as it is would not be ideal.  Expect Jerry Reese to keep him in house and seek out some help for him.. DE. New York. Jason Pierre-Paul. 10. player. 31
