It feels weird without football, doesn't it? Unfortunately for fans everywhere, the NFL season is over.
For 31 teams, the year ended in disappointment. The offseason is here and it's time for teams to alter, and ultimately improve, their rosters. The 2016 NFL Draft in April will play a huge role in this reshaping, as a collection of young, new talent will enter the league.
