With the 2020 NFL draft within the books and therefore the sports world otherwise quiet, we are able to a minimum of rethink the NFL’s new chain of command following
Here’s however we tend to rank all thirty two groups getting into the dead of the offseason:
32. urban center Bengals:
The Bengals may need one in all the game’s most promising quarterbacks currently, however there’s an opportunity it’ll take time for Joe Burrow to require off,
and I’m thwarted they didn’t do a lot of to safeguard him during this draft.
31. metropolis Jaguars:
They’ve suffered too several losses, and I’m not convinced Gardner Minshew II will save them.
30. Chicago Bears:
They’d fare okay within the end amount power rankings, however the Bears still go downhill on paper.
agency and therefore the draft failed to facilitate a team headed within the wrong direction.
29. Washington Redskins:
The Trent Williams trade was simply a reminder that the Redskins ar too dysfunctional to contend.
they need tons of talent, however they’re still missing a left tackle, and therefore the jury’s still out at quarterback.
28. Las Vegas Raiders:
Henry Ruggs III might simply bust and is just too almost like Tyrell Williams, the defense isn’t improved enough, and that they still overthink the draft.
27. Los Angeles Chargers:
Justin Herbert has high bust potential as well, and committing two Day 2 picks to Kenneth Murray was ridiculous (especially in this deep draft). The Chargers, like the Redskins, are more talented than this. But I don’t trust them at all.
26. Carolina Panthers:
They’re rebuilding right and their draft was superb, but it’s still a rebuild and I’m not sold on Teddy Bridgewater or Matt Rhule.
25. New York Giants:
Joe Judge is an unknown, we still don’t know what to expect from Daniel Jones and where is the pass rush coming from? The ceiling is high here, but the floor is damn low.
24. Detroit Lions:
A healthy Matthew Stafford could take them somewhere, but the rest of their offseason has been confusing. Sometimes they operate as though they’re rebuilding. And Matt Patricia isn’t a good head coach.
23. Los Angeles Rams:
They suffered even more losses in free agency and couldn’t compensate for that with limited draft capital. It’s already the end of an era for these Rams, who will eventually realize Jared Goff isn’t good.
22. New England Patriots:
They’d be in the bottom 10 if not for Bill Belichick. It’s a bottom-10 roster, though.
21. Tennessee Titans:
Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill aren’t sustaining what happened down the stretch in 2019, especially without Jack Conklin.
20. Miami Dolphins:
They were one of the worst teams in NFL history last season but they still finished the year 5-4. Now, they’ve added Tua Tagovailoa, Austin Jackson, Byron Jones, Kyle Van Noy, Shaq Lawson, Jordan Howard, and Ereck Flowers.
19. New York Jets:
Look at the depth chart and it’s easy to figure this is a playoff team in a wide-open division. The problem is Adam Gase.
18: Denver Broncos:
Still need to see it from Drew Lock, but he’s completely surrounded by talent now, and they have some killer pieces on defense. This could be a breakout season, but a lot could still go wrong.
17. Houston Texans:
Bill O’Brien is terrible at his job and they’re much worse now than they were at the end of the 2019 campaign. Simple as that.
16. Green Bay Packers:
I still love the defense and the running game, but we’re past the point of assuming Aaron Rodgers can save the passing offense. I’m losing faith in this team despite an NFC championship appearance.
15. Minnesota Vikings:
They entered the offseason in a terrible financial situation and have navigated perfectly. The defense lost some luster, but they should still have a shot in 2020. Love their draft.
14. Indianapolis Colts:
They’re still loaded with talent on both sides of the ball and are better off at quarterback now, but what does Philip Rivers have left?
13. Dallas Cowboys:
The offense could be unreal and the defense is far from being a liability even without Byron Jones. But something just hasn’t felt right with this team of late.
12. Buffalo Bills:
They’re now loaded pretty much everywhere, but Josh Allen remains a wild card. If he can become a star, they’ll be a prime Super Bowl contender.
11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Not sure I trust Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski at this stage, but they’re better than Jameis Winston and O.J. Howard. And Howard might still be there! Gotta love the receiving corps and the emerging defense.
10. Cleveland Browns:
This team has top-five talent, but questions at quarterback and a lot of ghosts to fight.
9. Atlanta Falcons:
8. Pittsburgh Steelers:
Take the best defensive team in the NFL and add Ben Roethlisberger. That’s all you need to make the top 10 these days.
7. Seattle Seahawks:
Russell Wilson. Everything else is meh, but Wilson and his supporting cast can be the difference.
6. Philadelphia Eagles:
If they can stay healthy (particularly at quarterback) and Jalen Reagor can come through, the sky’s the limit for the 2017 Super Bowl champs. Don’t forget they also added Darius Slay.
5. Arizona Cardinals:
This might seem a bit high, but I’m obsessed. Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury in Year 2 with DeAndre Hopkins? Isaiah Simmons complementing Chandler Jones on defense? That’s going to be damn fun. And Josh Jones should also help fortify Murray.
4. New Orleans Saints:
The Saints hardly ever change, and that’s fine because they have more wins than anyone else in football the last three seasons.
3. Baltimore Ravens:
The offense is set for the league’s only 14-win team from 2019, and now they’ve added Calais Campbell and Patrick Queen on D. Come on!
2. San Francisco 49ers:
Meanwhile, the defending NFC champions added Trent Williams, Brandon Aiyuk, and Javon Kinlaw. They’re completely jacked. Kudos for not resting on any laurels.
1. Kansas City Chiefs:
So long as they have a healthy Patrick Mahomes, the defending Super Bowl winners deserve the top spot.
