    NFL Power Rankings: Raiders rise, Giants fall after 2017 draft

    By Elliot Harrison/NFL Media analyst
    RANK

    16. TEXANS +2

    So much was made about the effort to find a quarterback of the future and then ultimately landing Deshaun Watson that the rest of the Texans' draft was obscured. Second-round pick Zach Cunninghammight not be a thumper, but he could be an excellent pursuit linebacker. While he was thought to be a WLB in a 4-3, Romeo Crennel's defense is a bit unorthodox, with "DE" Jadeveon Clowney often standing up. Cunningham should play in front of Brennan Scarlett and others. Loved the D'Onta Foreman pick. He will be a nice yin to Lamar Miller's yang.

    You posted it, you got it.
    In 2016 Brock Osweiler was rated last (32nd) among all QBs (>400 attempts) by ProFootballFocus and ranked 33rd/34 QBs (>200 attempts) by Football Outsiders.

              Don't sleep on the Titans. Good young QB, good RBs, getting better at WR/TE, good OL and a decent D.

              Jags depend on Bortles

              Indy...same there is Luck and that might be all

              The division isn't a cakewalk but we should still sweep it if we have a good Quarterback starting and healthy.

                I think everyone in this division takes a step forward but it wont reflect in their records. Similar to how the nfc east has been. A lot of teams hovering around 8-8 and the one who takes the division will have the best division record. Not necessarily 10 or 11 wins. Very similar to how the Texans took it last year.

                  I surely hope the division is more competitive so people can stop calling it the weakest division in football. I believe everyone improved but the Colts.

                              NFL power rankings 2017: Patriots still on top after productive offseason

                              SBNation
                              Itís hard to reach May as an NFL fan and not be convinced that your favorite team is significantly better than it was just a few months ago. Yes, they lost that one player ó but he wasnít that important anyway. If he was, they definitely wouldíve made a bigger effort to keep him. And it doesnít matter because they have that other player ready to take over his spot.

                              The Patriots and Jaguars made big moves this offseason, but their levels of urgency are for different reasons.

                              And how about that draft class? After watching some highlights of the players the team drafted, itís pretty clear that the general manager knows exactly what heís doing.

                              But unfortunately, thereís only one spot at the top of the power rankings and some poor team has to go at the bottom, no matter how convinced you are that the woes of 2016 were left in that year.

                              For now, thereís no reason to believe that the Super Bowl champions arenít still the best team in football. Tom Brady isnít getting any younger, but the New England Patriots are gearing up for wins in a big way while heís still the quarterback ó trading away draft picks for playmakers and signing splash free agents.

                              The Atlanta Falconsí offseason wasnít quite as bold, but it didnít have to be. The team had one of the NFLís best offenses and a young defense that got better as the year went on. For now, the Falcons are still behind the Patriots after the heartbreaking Super Bowl 51, but adding Dontari Poe and Takkarist McKinley keeps Atlanta hot on the heels of the champs.

                              Sliding down the ranks

                              The New York Giants went 11-5 last year with a strong defense leading the way, but letís stop for a second and ask ourselves a question: Why was their offense ranked No. 25 in the NFL?

                              It certainly wasnít Eli Manningís best year, but he didnít perform poorly. And the Giants have one of the best receivers in the NFL ó Odell Beckham Jr., whoís paired with another exciting talent, Sterling Shepard.

                              The problem sure looks like the awful rushing attack that managed 3.5 yards per carry and a whopping six touchdowns.

                              Does adding hybrid tight end Evan Engram and receiver Brandon Marshall solve that problem? Maybe a healthier season and the addition of guard D.J. Fluker will help, but Iím struggling to see how New York actually got better this offseason.

                              Welcome to the world of contenders

                              The Oakland Raiders launched back near the top this offseason, but thatís mostly because Derek Carr isnít going to be broken anymore. So letís talk instead about the Tennessee Titans,who finally got Marcus Mariota some help and made aggressive moves to try to push the team from 9-7 into a real contender.

                              Mariota bumped his impressive rookie passer rating of 91.5 up to 95.6 in 2016 ó and this was with Rishard Matthews, Delanie Walker, and Tajae Sharpe as his top three receiving options.

                              Now Mariota has first-round receiver Corey Davis and a pair of third-round picks to work with on offense. Oh, and letís not forget that the team signed Logan Ryan, Johnathan Cyprien, and Sylvester Williams on defense before drafting cornerback Adoreeí Jackson late in the first round. All aboard the Titans hype train.

                              Bottom of the barrel

                              The Cleveland Browns actually looked halfway competent at the end of the year, finishing with a win in Week 16 and an overtime loss in Week 17. Theyíre not transforming into a contender quite yet, but they certainly donít belong at the very bottom after adding three first-round picks and a few free agents who will be instant starters.

                              Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Rams, that No. 32 spot still belongs to them. Being a bad team is a hard thing to fix and itís even worse without the benefit of a first-round pick.

                              Ultimately, the Ramsí climb from dead last could happen quickly if Jared Goff plays like a No. 1 overall pick and uses the additions of Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Gerald Everett to his advantage. But for now, the team looks like itíll take some time to reassemble.
