The NFC West features a team that made it to the Super Bowl last year, a team that has been to two of the last five Super Bowls, and two teams that each held one of the top two overall picks. There was more moving and shaking in this division than any other, and each of its teams made strong strides toward addressing their weaknesses.
The Rams went 13-3 and attacked free agency as well as the draft to become even deeper than they were in 2018. The Seahawks went 10-6, returned to the playoffs after a one-year hiatus, and are primed to go as far as Russell Wilson and the changing defense can take them. The 49ers went 4-12 but were more competitive than their record indicated while rotating through quarterbacks like they were the Browns of old. Finally, the Cardinals finished 3-13, then played a game of highly-drafted quarterback musical chairs - this division had it all this off-season.
Opposing defenses won't be able to key in on David Johnson as much as last year in light of the Cardinals' revamped offense. The Seahawks added a trio of young wideouts to give Russell Wilson more targets to sling the football to. The Rams added defense and an insurance policy for their most important offensive weapon. The 49ers added weapons through both free agency and the draft to run Kyle Shanahan’s offense.
