When the NFL lockout is lifted teams across the NFL will try to upgrade their rosters by signing free agents and making trades. Until the lockout is over I thought it might be fun to ask with the current players signed and teams recent draft picks, who tops the NFC West power rankings? With this question the 49ers are not in great position with only Colin Kaerpernick and David Carr at quarterback on the current roster but the 49ers upgraded in the draft with Aldon Smith and Kendall Hunter. The 49ers secondary was not upgraded in the draft so they fail in that category as well. Good thing is the NFC West is currently not all that much stronger than the 49ers but that will change as soon as free agency starts. When the lockout ends the Cardinals should be busy searching for a quarterback through free agency or trades. With the Cardinals adding to their roster Patrick Peterson and the Rams upgrading with Robert Quinn the balance of the NFC West could go in any direction.
