I really hate NFL Power Rankings before the NFL Draft and free agency, buuuuuuutttttt, I just can’t help myself.

These rankings are based on where teams are, not where they will be after the draft. Having said that a teams draft position does have some impact on where they get slated here. They own the equity of those picks and it’s part of a teams strength right now.

32. Cincinnati Bengals – Can Joe Burrow save them?

31. Jacksonville Jaguars – They’ve lost more talent in a year than some teams dream of ever having.

30. Detroit Lions – The people of Detroit deserve better.

29. Washington Redskins – The only reason they’re this high is my belief in and respect for Ron Rivera. Oh and they should draft another QB in round one.

28. Carolina Panthers – I like Matt Rhule, but a lot of unknowns here.

27. New York Giants – They were so bad last year I just can’t shake it.

26. Miami Dolphins – If they can nail this draft they’ll be a team to look for very soon. This draft could be the biggest in Dolphins history.

25. NY Jets – I would really like Avery Williamson to be on a better team.

24. Denver Broncos – Certain friends are already unhappy with this ranking. 😉

23. Los Angeles Chargers – I covered Tyrod Taylor when he was in high school That’s all I got.

22. Arizona Cardinals – They had to think Bill O’Brien was punking them right?

21.. New England Patriots – With their QB & WR situation why do I have them this high?

20. Las Vegas Raiders – When does Marcus start?

19. Cleveland Browns – Everyone expects them to mess up the virtual draft.

18. Houston Texans – Could there be a mutiny in Houston? If they start slowly OB is in big trouble.

17. Chicago Bears – How many weeks do they give Trubisky?

16. Atlanta Falcons – New uniforms!

15. Indianapolis Colts – Once great QB on the downside of his career, I don’t view that as a great answer for the position.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers – Can Ben stay healthy? That’s everything.

13. Los Angeles Rams – Life after Gurley… Is there one?

12. Buffalo Bills – This years Browns, everyone loves them. Everyone but me!

11. Philadelphia Eagles – So which WR do they take in round one?

10. Dallas Cowboys – Can Mike McCarthy get it done? Can Jerry stay out of the way? Can Dak avoid Covid-19 working out with all of those guys?

9. Tampa Bay Bucs – I like this team.

8. Minnesota Vikings – Another team that has to be thrilled with the crop of WR’s in this years draft.

7. Tennessee Titans – No glaring holes headed in to the draft. Just the chance to get deeper and better.

6. Green Bay Packers – How much is left in Aaron Rodgers tank?

5. Seattle Seahawks – Well coached, well run and a great QB. Pretty good combo.

4. Baltimore Ravens – Everyone wants to see what Lamar Jackson has for us this year.

3. New Orleans Saints – Drew Brees is back, so it’s Super Bowl or bust.

2. San Francisco 49ers – They couldn’t pay them all. DeForest Buckner is gone.

1. Kansas City Chiefs – As long as they’ve got Pat Mahomes they’re probably a top 5 team.

I’m up against on time… I’ll have comments on many of the teams later in the day…
