Scouting Report. (1-3-1). 21. player. 54. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 25. Philadelphia Eagles

The  Eagles looked miserable to start the season but have since flipped it around. While they still only have one win, they are more competitive in games and seem to be finding their footing. Gregg Ward has stepped up on offense and the defense has shown more capability in getting to the quarterback. The Eagles have a real chance to turn this season around.

Scouting Report. 22. 13. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 19. (1-4). Los Angeles Chargers. player

While the Chargers’ record doesn’t show it, they have been pretty good this season. Los Angeles is very good defensively and has been competitive in games against very tough opponents. They have one of the best pass-rushes in the NFL. They have looked good but have also proven unable to close out tight games.

60. Last Week: 24. (1-4). Minnesota Vikings. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 23

The Vikings looked like a potential Super Bowl contender last season. For Minnesota, the record of 1-4 to start this season is jolting. That being said, the Vikings have started moving in the right direction in recent weeks. Although they have not won games that they should have, they played the Seahawks close and almost came out with a victory. With better production from the passing game in recent weeks, there is reason to believe that the Vikings could have some mobility in the power rankings.

Last Week: 26. player. 10. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. (1-4). Houston Texans. 24

The Texans are rejoicing now that Bill O’Brien has been relieved from his duty as general manager and head coach of the football team. If they were hoping to find a long-term solution in Romeo Crennel, they are mistaken. However, a change in leadership can lead to good things. Deshaun Watson is very good and could benefit from a new play caller. Although they have only played one game in the post-O’Brien era and it was against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a win is a win in the NFL.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 22. Cincinnati Bengals. (1-3-1). 25. player. 56

The Bengals are going to be a very good team in a few seasons. Unfortunately, they cannot stop anyone defensively and they cannot adequately block for rookie quarterback Joe Burrow. Cincinnati is likely not going to be competitive this season, but they can begin preparing for the successful seasons to come.

(1-4). Jacksonville Jaguars. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 23. 26. 52

While the Jaguars had a promising start, they have seen their hopes for a successful season begin to deteriorate. Gardner Minshew is throwing for a bunch of yards and DJ Chark has been an unexpected surprise. The problem is not with the offense butwith a defense which has allowed 94 points in the last three weeks. This explains how they have lost four games this season.

Last Week: 27. Dallas Cowboys. player. 123. Scouting Report. (2-3). 27. Pick Analysis

Dallas won their second game of the season when they defeated the miserable Giants. Their wins have now come against the Falcons and Giants which are two of the worst teams in the NFL. Dak Prescott went down with a heart-breaking and season-ending injury. Now the team that Skip Bayless expected to be a dark horse for the Super Bowl will be competing for the first overall pick with Andy Dalton at the helm.

Scouting Report. Washington Football Team. 28. player. 58. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 28. (1-4)

Washington may not be winning games, but they are certainly an interesting team. Ron Rivera is battling cancer and serves as an inspiration. Now, to add more to the latter, Alex Smith has played actual NFL snaps after his horrific injury. While they have a long way to go, there are a lot of reasons to cheer for the Football Team.

45. (1-3). 29. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 29. Denver Broncos

Denver is a sad team to think about. They went from being a playoff caliber team to being a bottom tier team in a matter of weeks. The season from hell continues.

(0-5). 30. 44. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Last Week: 30. Atlanta Falcons. player

The Falcons are the other team that has moved on from the general manager and head coach. Dan Quinn may have led a team to the Super Bowl once, but it was beyond time for fresh blood in Atlanta. The Falcons have been good offensively, but they’re defense is on pace for a historically bad season. They have a long way to go to figure out their new identity in their next era.

Scouting Report. Last Week: 31. New York Giants. player. 31. Pick Analysis. (0-5). 31

Saquon Barkley is out for the year. Unfortunately, that has completely depleted the Giants. In the modern NFL, that is unacceptable. There is no scenario in which a running back injury should ruin the entire season for an NFL team. The Giants are just bad.

Last Week: 32. 30. Pick Analysis. (0-5). New York Jets. 32. player. Scouting Report

Adam Gase. Joe Flacco. Le’Veon Bell has been released. What else can I say? This is a dumpster fire inside of a trainwreck in the middle of a hurricane.
