While all the attention is on the current 2024 NFL free agent class, some teams will be circling names for 2025, too.

Things could change since it's a year in advance, but the class, at the moment, boasts several needle-moving players in all three units.

Dallas Cowboys star Dak Prescott is one of the premier names offensively, while Los Angeles Rams future Hall of Famer Aaron Donald is among the marquee defensive options.

Even on special teams, Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker is one to watch, along with Washington Commanders punter Tress Way.

Let's go through the key names in every position for the 2025 NFL free agency period:
