Some NFL teams have few holes on their rosters. Other teams have positions where they are stuck making do with veterans and late-round youngsters. But no team is weak at every position on the depth chart.
There is talent all across the league; that's why any team can beat any other team on any given Sunday.

Acosta (AFC South), Mike Tanier (AFC West), Rivers McCown (NFC East), Derrik Klassen (NFC North), Bryan Knowles (NFC South) and Vincent Verhei (NFC West) from Football Outsiders look at where each team is most robust going into the 2022 season.
