Steelers Climb and Packers Fall in Latest Power Rankings

The NFL football rankings are a common way for fans to see how good their team is versus others in the league. The NFL is known for parity between teams. With the way the draft system is set up, a bad team can become good again in a few seasons.

 

Over the past week, there have been massive movements in the NFL power rankings. It is difficult to determine how strong a team is early in the season.

 

Steelers Climb

 

The Pittsburg Steelers have one of the strongest rosters in the league. During training camp, the main story centered around Leveon Bell. Bell is the most dynamic running back in the NFL. He is in a contract year, and he refuses to play until a contract gets signed. Most of the players are tired of hearing about contract discussions.

 

Head coach Mike Tomlin believes that Bell is having a negative impact on the team. In the first few games of the season, it was obvious the Steelers were struggling on offense. However, the Steelers won a tough game last week.

 

Rams Win Again

 

Most NFL fans believe the Los Angeles Rams are the best team in the league. The Rams are undefeated so far this year, and the team won a tough division game against the Seahawks last week. The Seahawks are rebuilding this year, but the team still has talent on the offensive side. The Rams coach, Sean McVay, decided to go for the first down on fourth down last week. His decision was a risky move, but it sealed the win for the Rams.

 

Chiefs

 

The Chiefs are the only other undefeated team in the NFL. The team has both a dynamic offense and an excellent defense. Patrick Mahomes was drafted last year out of Texas Tech. Most NFL fans questioned the move to draft Mahomes because Alex Smith was the quarterback at the time. Mahomes was able to learn under Alex Smith for a full season before starting this year. So far, Mahomes has been the best quarterback in the NFL from a statistical standpoint. The Chiefs play the Rams in a few weeks. This matchup is one of the most anticipated games of the entire year.

 

Packers Fall

 

Many fans in Green Bay are getting anxious about this season. Although Aaron Rodgers is still an excellent quarterback, he has few offensive weapons around him. Last week, Mason Crosby missed five field goal attempts. He is usually an accurate kicker, and the Packers ended up losing the game. The Packers now have a losing record so far this season. If the team misses the playoffs again, most fans think the head coach will get fired.

 

Titans Fall After Loss to Bills

 

The Titans stunned most NFL fans after beating the Jaguars and Eagles in consecutive weeks. Although the offense has struggled, the defense is one of the best in the league.

 

Going into a game with the Bills, the vast majority of people thought the Titans would easily win. However, the Bills were able to beat the Titans after kicking a late field goal.

 

The Titans have an important game coming up with the Ravens. Both teams have the same record, and the game could have playoff implications later in the year. According to NFL power rankings, if the Titans lose to the Ravens, it could signal that this team is not ready to contend for the playoffs this season.

Quarterbacks Affect The Position Of Teams In The NFL Power Rankings

Walter Football has been looking at the 2019 Draft class as a way of gauging the future position of teams in next year’s NFL Power Rankings. The role of Walter Football is to look at every aspect of the NFL and College game in a bid to provide the most up to date information on the state of teams in both of the leading versions of the game of football.

 

One of the areas affecting the state of any individual team in the NFL and College game the most is the leadership shown by its current quarterback. The “Holy Grail” for teams in the NFL is to find a franchise standard quarterback capable of leading a team to the Playoffs and even further to the Super Bowl. As every draft class moves forward, teams begin to explore the pros and cons of individual players who could push a team forward. One of the top quarterback prospects expected to enter the draft in 2019 is Missouri’s Drew Lock, a player who broke SEC records for the most touchdown passes in a single season with 44.

 

As the 2018 season moves forward, teams from across the NFL send scouts to each college team to assess potential draft picks for their suitability for the National Football League. The process of preparing for the 2019 Draft has already begun with teams already passing judgment on Lock and his suitability for the dog-eat-dog world of professional football. After the first in a series of scheduled meetings between scouts and teams comes to a close, the stock of Lock seems to be falling as questions are asked about his personality and leadership skills. A franchise quarterback can make all the difference in a team rising up or falling down the NFL Power Rankings in the coming season.

 

One the face of things, Drew Lock would seem to be a shoe-in as one of the first quarterbacks selected from the board come the 2019 Draft. The pros of Lock would appear to be the strength of his arm which seasoned scouts say is as strong as those seen in recent years. As a quarterback, Lock has been described as being able to make every throw needed to become a leading signal-caller in the NFL with an amazing command of the football. In the latest era of hybrid quarterbacks, Lock has the size and athleticism to make plays with his feet as well as his arm to make him a powerful threat.

 

All these benefits are enough to make most General Managers and Head Coaches salivate with anticipation over the arrival of Lock in the NFL. However, others are less sure of the suitability of the Missouri quarterback to make the leap to the big time, particularly because of his lack of a commanding personality. Some teams have been comparing Lock to Eli Manning because of the strength of his arm and his slightly awkward personality. The position of Drew Lock in the 2019 Draft will depend on the NFL Power Rankings at the end of the season with the quarterback likely to be selected by a team not wanting a commanding presence to lead the locker room.
