Complete NFLDC Power Rankings (and subsequent draft order)
 
Just over a month after we started this site-wide project, we have now completed it. There have been some controversies about some positions, but that's life. This is the draft order and power rankings that you as a board have come up with. It is recommended that you use this draft order in any 2007 mock drafts just to keep a little continuity and to keep those pesky "My team should be picking at 32!!!" comments away. Obviously you are free to use any draft order you like, but this has the NFLDC Board Stamp since it was the people who decided this. So without further ado, here it is!

32. San Francisco 49ers
31. Buffalo Bills
30. New York Jets
29. Tennessee Titans
28. New Orleans Saints
27. Houston Texans
26. Oakland Raiders (yes, predicted to have the 7th pick for 3 straight years)
25. Detroit Lions
24. Minnesota Vikings
23. Green Bay Packers
22. St. Louis Rams
21. Cleveland Browns
20. Arizona Cardinals
19. San Diego Chargers
18. Baltimore Ravens
17. Philadelphia Eagles
16. Atlanta Falcons
15. Washington Redskins
14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
13. Miami Dolphins
12. Kansas City Chiefs
11. Jacksonville Jaguars
10. New England Patriots
9. New York Giants
8. Dallas Cowboys
7. Chicago Bears
6. Cincinnati Bengals
5. Denver Broncos
4. Indianapolis Colts
3. Seattle Seahawks
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
1. Carolina Panthers

I like that you did this, but I think the final result just shows that people place too much value on what happened last season when trying to predict what will happen this year. Some of those teams that were great last year are going to drop, and others will rise. Thanks for doing it though. It'll be interesting to look back on this and see how accurate "our" consesus ranking was.

It actually is pretty interesting. I'll dig up last year's results and post them here in relation to actual draft position.

WOW. :shock: That shows exactly how much stock I'm putting in this year's pre-season rankings......none.
Thanks NIP. Very interesting indeed.

That is funny. It does go to show you that pre-season rankings are pointless. Those rankings don't seem too bad though... for now at least.

Canadian_kid16 07-10-2006 07:37 AM

That is funny, TB was #27 last year

ChiBear 07-10-2006 08:32 AM

Not bad, although the Pats will do better, and I think Cincy will lose some games because of the Palmer injury.

Nerv 07-10-2006 03:47 PM

This reminds me of how highly we thought of the Lions on this board last year :oops: Well at least this year our expectations are so low that any success will be a positive.

Shane P. Hallam 07-10-2006 03:52 PM

I just did the first mock with the new order in the mock draft forum :)

XxXdragonXxX 07-10-2006 06:44 PM

That's odd...

Arizona was 14th last year, everyone thinks they're the most improved team (again), but they're 20th this year which is ony 3 spots above their actuall 2005 ranking.

This is why, when we expect things of smaller teams that never win, they continue not winning (ie: Cardinals).

Look at Houston :shock:

Power Rankings are stupid, just my opinion.

Exactly, we should never expect anything...

that's TERRIBLE. I'm sorry, but no one in their right mind would think the redskins will do that poorly.

That isn't that bad. 15th best team in the league.

16 people in their right mind thought so... And they barely made it that far, just missing out on going in quite a few consecutive polls.

Iamcanadian 07-11-2006 07:32 AM

The NFL is a QB/schedule league, and every year sees 8 new teams make the playoffs. If your rankings doesn't include 8 new teams, it won't come anywhere close to looking like the real thing.
