Not every NFL team is a natural to ace the regular season and wind up in the playoffs. For some clubs it is quite the struggle just to accomplish a 50-percent success record or even win a small handful of games.

This is why moves made during the NFL offseason and draft are critical. Bigger than that sometimes, new head coaches and front offices end up sparking even more success.

With that in mind, we’re looking at some teams that could shockingly rise from the basement and actually wind up in the playoffs. After all, all 32 teams are in a tie for first place right now. Who are we to count them out of the playoff race this early?

So which struggling teams are primed to rise to the top?
