Post-Draft Power Rankings: Packers Fall, Buccaneers Surge

Written by Sam DeCoste

In a time without sports, the NFL came and saved us.
One of the most captivating offseasons wrapped up last week following the first ever virtual NFL Draft, following an entertaining free agency period. Joe Burrow was selected first overall, DeAndre Hopkins was traded, Tom Brady is a Buccaneer, and Roger Goodell humanized himself as the commissionner! This offseason will go down as one the most memorable for the blockbuster moves, the virtual draft, the stars switching teams, and for its ability to distract us and win our hearts during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Before the NFL schedule is released later this week, it's time to rank all 32 NFL teams. It's time to see who are the bottom feeders, who is rising up, and who are the true championship players.

Written by Sam DeCoste
If I were to tell you at the beginning of last season that
DeAndre Hopkins would be a Cardinal,Stefon Diggs would be a Bill,Todd Gurley would be a Falcon,Philip Rivers would be a Colts,Teddy Bridgewater would be a Panther,and Tom Brady would be a Buccaneer,you would have laughed at me. But this is the alternate Madden-esque reality which the NFL will be in 2020, with a number of brand value names playing in different uniforms. Even the great Tom Brady has parted ways with the Patriots, and DeAndre Hopkins was shipped out of Houston for a roll of toilet paper. This offseason could mark one of the most historic periods of transition for the NFL and define the trajectories of more teams than ever before. 

Now that the first wave of free agency has died down, we have a chance to breathe and break down the biggest transactions of the first week of NFL free agency and determine who are the winners and losers of the legal tampering period. Only time will tell who are the …
