Niner Noise breaks down the league’s NFL power rankings following each team’s actions in the 2018 NFL Draft. Where does your favorite squad stand?


The 2018 NFL Draft is in the rear-view mirror, and it’s time to usher up some NFL power rankings heading into the remainder of offseason programs around the league.

There were a few movers and shakers after the draft, notably the New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals and Denver Broncos. Other teams, like the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders, made some questionable draft-day moves despite having a flurry of other needs to address.

One team well discussed on draft day was Niner Noise’s power-rankings basement dweller, the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns, of course, boasted two picks in the top five. And the landed some hopeful impact players in quarterback Baker Mayfield and cornerback Denzel Ward — arguably the two best prospects at their respective positions.

Cleveland needs a lot of help, and the hope these two will help propel the team out of the basement is more than apparent.

Is it enough to get them away from No. 32 on our NFL power rankings?

No, unfortunately. But it’s a good start.
