As the 2014 season draws near, NFL Insider Pat Kirwan predicts how all 32 teams will finish.

I examine two things that have been on my mind: holding calls and roster cuts.

Late-round picks like Zach Mettenberger, Lorenzo Taliaferro and Bruce Ellington appear to be gems all successful teams find among their rookies.

The NFL reacting to physical secondary play by emphasizing illegal contact penalties isn't new. And it'll subside because the league doesn't want four-hour games, either.

When picking the NFL's 10 most interesting players, it's easy to start in Dallas, where Tony Romo produces for a team with leaky defense, and gets blamed for the failures. In Cleveland, Johnny Manziel is starting what looks like a career more about perception than what he can do on the field.

Tom Brady does more with less than any other QB in the NFL, so he gets the nod as the top quarterback. Jimmy Graham, fresh off a new contract, is the tight end.

Arizona is taking on the personality of its coach, Bruce Arians, and the Cardinals won't be intimidated. Even in the rough and tumble NFC West.

You know Seattle brings the D. Add improved Russell Wilson and healthy Percy Harvin to that solid running game and the champs could be poised for another run.

Peyton Manning may be better than an eye-popping 2013. DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib help a defense for a club built to avenge a Super Bowl rout.
