Even if things seem like they’ve remained the same from year to year, rosters are always churning.
This offseason in the AFC East, though, there were plenty of moves that were made with the intention of shifting the balance of power.
The Dolphins obviously addressed some definite needs on offense during the 2011 NFL Draft, bringing in a stud interior offensive lineman (Mike Pouncey), an every-down running back (Daniel Thomas), a deep threat wide receiver (Edmond Gates), and a versatile pass-catching tight end (Charles Clay). What about the rest of the division, though? We know that the Bills had the third overall pick and that the Pats had 600 total selections, but what did those teams (and the Jets) end up doing and will it lead to increased toughness in the AFC East in 2011?
