The majority of NFL rosters are already set for the 2021 campaign. Yes, even in July. Each team's top decision-makers have an eye toward the next offseason and how they can improve their respective squads. Sure, a few surprises will occur along the way and injuries will change certain dynamics within a lineup. Mostly, the majority of all 32 rosters can be projected for Week 1 based on previous investments and players' individual statuses. Only a handful of roster spots are truly available, while opportunities for significant change are few and far between in the short term. The draft serves as a compass. How a franchise evaluates and chooses young talent defines its direction. Good teams crumble and bad squads ascend rather quickly based on those decisions.
