Next Tuesday the NFL free agent market opens up and later in April the league will conduct its annual college draft making it an excellent time for teams to try and fill some of the holes in their current roster. It is also a great time to take a closer look at the futures odds for a team's chances to win its conference as these are always subject to change depending on what happens from now until the start of the first mini-camps later this spring.
The teams at the top of these lists rarely fluctuate with New England usually leading the way in the AFC and Green Bay the perennial favorite to win the NFC. This year, Denver and San Francisco are in the mix based on their recent performances but the odds start to drop off pretty fast from there.
