My NFL Draft Top 15





In Focus - the NFC East

The NFC East does not appear to be very strong this season but the division is certainly up for grabs. Last year's division champion, the Washington Redskins were a surprise 9-7 last year but the Dallas Cowboys with a healthy Tony Romo and Dez Bryant along with rookie Ezekiel Elliot will certainly be better than they were a year ago. The New York Giants certainly have the offensive firepower to eclipse last season's disappointing 6-10 record as well.

My early favorite to emerge as the division winner in the NFC East is the Dallas Cowboys who were decimated by injuries last season and managed a strong 12-4 record in 2014. Tony Romo was not off to a great start last season before going down to season ending injury but without Romo, the Cowboys had no chance and played like they had no chance. Dez Bryant also never got on track and having both back healthy makes this team instantly better. I love the selection of Ezekiel Elliot in the draft along with the free agent signing of Alfred Morris. The Cowboys offensive line is perhaps the best in football and I expect them to lead the NFL in rushing this season, taking some pressure off of the Cowboys passing attack. The team had a pretty quiet off season but already had many of the pieces on place to win this division. I don't expect more than 10 wins but that should be enough in the NFC East.

The Washington Redskins shocked the football world last season led by a wonderful performance by quarterback Kirk Cousins who caught fire over the second half of the season. I am not sure he will ever complete 75% of his passes for another half of a football season ever again but he certainly proved he is a legitimate NFL quarterback. I dislike what the Redskins did in free agency this year. I don't see any player brought in as a veteran free agent who is more than a depth player right now while the team lost a good interior defensive lineman in Terrance Knighton to the Patriots, a dependable linebacker in Keenan Robinson to the Giants and a good depth running back capable of 20 carries a game in Alfred Morris.

The draft on the other hand did add several players capable of contributing right away which saved their offseason. I love Josh Doctson and he reminds me a lot of Anquan Boldin. Competitive, tough, good hands and gets after the ball. He will be a good one. Su'a Cravens is a battler at safety who can cover receivers as well. He should step in as the starting strong safety. I had Kendall Fuller graded higher than he went as injury caused his plummet somewhat. He is fast twich and I think he will be CB3 before too long in Washington. Matt Ioannidis is a physical powerful interior lineman who will be in the rotation. I really like Steven Daniels, inside linebacker from Boston College who is a physical run stopping throwback linebacker. The Redskins stole him in my opinion but he will spend at least one year learning his craft as a backup in all likelihood. Keith Marshall may surprise at the next level and make teams regret letting him sit there until round seven. The fastest running back in the draft with a 4.31 forty he also has great size at 219 pounds and was highly thought of until injuries derailed his college career with Georgia. He can move up to RB2 right away with a good camp.

Looking at the Redskins, they could emerge as division winners once again but I expect a similar season to last year with the Cowboys riding Tony Romo and Dez Bryant to a division title. If anyone will jump ahead of Dallas however it will be the Redskins.

The New York Giants are an interesting team this season who will likely have six new starters on defense. If the defense is as improved as it looks right now in the offseason, the Giants will have a real opportunity to move up the ladder in a hurry. Obviously star quarterback Eli Manning is the straw that stirs the drink in New York. He is coming off of a 35-touchdown / 14-interception campaign last year and should be good once again this season. He has the explosive, dynamic Odell Beckham Jr. to get the ball to and rookie receiver Sterling Shephard from Oklahoma should improve the receiving core as well as veteran Victor Cruz if he can stay healthy. I am not a big fan of the Giants rushing attack as the running backs are pedestrian and the offensive line below average but the passing attack will get it done. For the Giants, adding DE Olivier Vernon and huge DT Damon Harrison will make an immediate impact in the trenches. Both players will be big upgrades for the team. Veteran CB Janoris Jenkins comes over from the Rams and should start alongside first round pick Eli Apple of Ohio State. If the defense gels and Eli Manning stays healthy, the Giants have enough to contend for the division title. They are good enough to win 9+ games.

The Eagles needed to make changes on this roster after a disappointing 2015 campaign and they accomplished just that with as many as seven free agents brought in who are capable of winning starting jobs. Both starting guards should feature new starters this year as veterans Stefan Wisniewski and Brandon Brooks are capable, dependable starters. The defensive secondary will also be made over in 2016 with as many as three of the starting five positions (CB1,CB2, NB, SS, FS) made over with free agent acquisitions. Leodis McCalvin will start at one cornerback position, Rodney McCleod will start at free safety in all likelihood while Ron Brooks has a real chance to step into the nickel back position. Of the three receivers added only Rueben Randle really looks capable of stepping into a prominent role and coming off of a 8-touchdown season he is capable of elevating up to WR2 in this offense. Nigel Bradham has a real chance to start at the Will Linebacker position as well.

The Eagles let go of some talent as well this season, parting ways with running back DeMarco Murray, quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Riley Cooper. Also defensive tackle Cedric Thornton was let loose. I really dislike the draft this season for the Eagles and do not really get moving up in the draft and losing a bunch of picks to take a quarterback. They already had Sam Bradford in house who did a decent job last year and the Eagles had a lot of holes to fill. That said if Carson Wentz is close to Joe Flacco than Shane Falco everything will be ok down the road in Philadelphia. I don't see a single player drafted who is likely to start this season and many look to be NFL depth caliber players throughout their career. Not much help in all likelihood in this draft.

Even with the poor draft of the Eagles, I really like the offseason moves and the veteran players brought in. When you can add seven players via free agency and plug them into your starting positions, you have done a good job finding value and the Eagles did just that. They should be better in many ways than they were a year ago but the Eagles will need to catch fire at running back and hope the quarterback situation doesn't become a headache to put together a solid season. I like them least of the four teams in this division but it is really quite close between the four teams and any of the teams could likely climb to the top or sink to the bottom. I will put the Eagles down for 6 wins but 10 wins could be as likely.
