32 franchises sit in an NFL that consists of two conferences and eight different divisions. When the 101st season of football begins, there will be 32 active rosters with 53 men on them. That’s 1,696 players total, but there’s always that one guy on every team that, as a fan, you want to steal and put on your team. This story is about them.

Here are 31 players that would be a dream “steal” from every franchise. We begin in the NFC East.
