The AFC West has quickly become one of the best divisions in football, seeing that three teams made the playoffs last year and three of the four starting quarterbacks were voted to the pro-bowl.

Denver has arguably the greatest quarterback of all time under center and made it to the Super Bowl. The Chargers emerged from the depths with the resurrection of Phillip Rivers, and excellent coaching from first year guy Mike McCoy. Oakland, well, they were Oakland and Kansas City found themselves in a division race with Denver, ultimately reaching the playoffs in one of the greatest turnarounds in NFL history.

It’s hard to say that 2014 will be anything close to that but we do know that it won’t be a cake walk to win the West.

With the NFL draft now behind us, we’ll be looking at each teams draft and the areas in which they focused on fixing. To begin the roundup, simply click “next” below, or, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate.

    It’s amazing how quickly divisions can turn around. Remember in 2010 when the NFC West was the biggest joke ever with a 7-9 team making the playoffs (and taking out my Saints :| )? Only a few years have passed and the NFC West is by far the toughest division in the NFL.

    Same for the AFC West. In 2012, it was a joke. The Chiefs and Raiders were awful and the Chargers were as inconsistent as always. Just a year later and three teams made it to the playoffs! Crazy.

      It is pretty crazy. But that’s what makes the NFL so great
