As we approach the 2021 NFL draft the Breen’s rank every team in the NFL in their pre-draft power rankings!

1 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers

They can head into the draft purely looking to strengthen the ranks and secure their future roster as they return all 22 starting members of their Superbowl winning squad.

2 – Cleveland Browns

They ran the Chiefs close in the playoffs last year and have strengthened a number of areas including defensive line and defensive backs this offseason.

3 – Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs looked like they had dismantled their offensive line only to make the interior better. Likely Long plays right tackle but he is coming out of retirement and they don’t have a top left tackle.

4 – Green Bay Packers

The Packers only real loss in free agency was their starting centre Corey Linsley who is one of the best in the business. Otherwise they return a very good squad for the upcoming season.

5 – Buffalo Bills

The Bills have recruited yet more offensive talent for their roster. The only reason they are down at 5 is because they haven’t improved their pass rush and to beat Mahomes you need this.

6 – Indianapolis Colts

The Colts have replaced Rivers with Wentz where he will back under the watchful eye of his former quarterbacks coach and OC. If he can return to form they are a few good draft picks away from being a top squad.

7 – Los Angeles Rams

Matthew Stafford is a big upgrade here at the Quarterback position. They likely sit higher but lost a good few players in the free agency period.

8 – Baltimore Ravens

The ravens signed a good player to slot into right guard and currently still have two giant tackles to make that line solid. Their biggest issue is they lost most of their pass rush and any wide receivers of note.

9 – New Orleans Saints

The Saints have lost a number of good players and seen Drew Brees retire, however they still have an extremely talented squad and if Winston steps in and plays well they should be up there again.

10 – New England Patriots

The Patriots struggled last year with the loss of Brady and a host of other players, however they have a solid offensive line, Newton back under centre and a host of new pieces they got in free agency.

11 – Tennessee Titans

The Titans had another good season behind the 2000 rushing yards of Henry. They have most of the pieces in place to continue an upward trend if they draft well.

12 – Seattle Seahawks

They still really need to protect Russell Wilson if they want to progress any further. Their defence found a grove near the end of the season but without more time there is only so much Wilson can do.

13 – San Francisco 49ers

They are likely to finally realise that Jimmy G needs to go and get a new quarterback in the draft. They lost another piece of their excellent defensive line but the offence looks deadly on paper.

14 – Minnesota Vikings

How this team ended up with such a poor record is beyond me. Cousins isn’t the answer but they still finished with a top 2 running back and two top 5 wide receivers. They could do with some help on both lines but have upgraded in other areas.

15 – Arizona Cardinals

They had a really good offence last year but their defence struggled. They have certainly upgraded in that area so now just need some extra offensive line depth.

16 – Miami Dolphins

A weird offseason so far where they moved about some players and took others in that I don’t think strengthened or weakened their team. Unfortunately with Tua at the helm they will only get so far.

17 – Carolina Panthers

The Panthers have made some nice moves over free agency and have built up a good squad. They last night traded for Sam Darnold and told Bridgewater he can look for a trade which I’m not convinced makes their team any better.

18 – Los Angeles Chargers

A team that is returning some big time players from injury this offseason, they have also significantly improved their offensive line for ROTY, Justin Herbert. They could be a sneaky dark horse in the AFC.

19 – Atlanta Falcons

This team has lost some of what little talent it had on defence. On the upside they are still a really good offence on paper and adding a few nice draft pieces could help turn their fortunes around after they lost a silly amount of games in the final minutes last season.

20 – Denver Broncos

The Broncos defence is loaded with good players that should help them stay in games. Lock showed flashes last season and has a very young offence around him that will only get stronger.

21 – New York Giants

The Giants have upgraded significantly over the last 2 seasons and excuses are now running out for Daniel Jones. The team he now has around him is strong and should be pushing to win the NFC East this season.

22 – Washington Football Team

This team deserves to suck this season just for letting Alex Smith go. They would have been a 3 win team without him last season. They have however signed some decent players to their roster as well as Fitzmagic.

23 – Houston Texans (Pending Deshaun Watson)

If Deshaun Watson ends up suspended or worse, in jail this team would be near the bottom. While he’s on the team they will put up points and be in with a chance of winning games.

24 – Dallas Cowboys

Yay, they signed Dak to a team breaking deal, well done. The offensive line is degrading, their defence is hopeless but its ok because the offence will score points.

25 – Philadelphia Eagles

Not sure what’s going on with the eagles at the moment, although they do have good lines both sides of the ball. Jalen Hurts isn’t the guy so cutting Wentz and eating that much cap was stupid. Now they don’t even have their high draft pick.

26 – Pittsburgh Steelers

This team were 11-0 last season which is crazy, then they just imploded and really I only see that continuing. Big Ben is struggling; they have no run game and have lost some talent on their defence. They are still well coached though so will make games of it.

27 – Cincinnati Bengals

If Joe Burrow makes it back from his injury they have the perfect opportunity to upgrade any position they wish at pick number 5. Offensive line help should be first on the mind and they should see improvement due to additions on their defence.

28 – Jacksonville Jaguars

New head coach, Trevor Lawrence on the way, loads of draft picks, lots of money, it all looks good. This is still likely a work in progress although they have made some nice free agency pickups.

29 – Las Vegas Raiders

When you let half you offensive line walk out the door you’re going to end up down here. They have very little pass rush and Carr is not good under pressure. Not a good mix.

30 – Chicago Bears

I blame Nagy, this team looked way better than predicted last season then he messed about with things. They have lost some talent on the defence and have very little draft picks or money to do anything.

31 – New York Jets

They are down here because of the unknown. The team looks much better on paper already and now likely has a new young quarterback coming in the door. They still have a horrendous secondary.

32 – Detroit Lions

Lose you starting quarterback of the last 10 years and replace him with Goff. Then lose your two best wide receivers and a host of other players. Not looking good.

    The Chiefs let go Fisher because he had a torn Achilles, so hardly dismantling!

    And it’s really not likely that Long plays right tackle, they resigned Remmers. And they probably aren’t paying him 7m to sit on the bench.
