32. Cleveland Browns

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 31

Good-bye, Trent Richardson.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 32

Jacksonville’s promotion is less about their play and more about them not trading one of their best players over the past week.

30. Oakland Raiders

Record: 1-1

Previous Ranking: 30

Oakland beat Jacksonville last week to give themselves a serious disadvantage in trying to earn the top overall pick.

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 27

Josh Freeman is displeased. Darrelle Revis is unhappy. Things are crashing fast in Tampa.

28. Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 25

Putting money down on Pittsburgh drafting in the top 10 in May would not be a bad move.

27. New York Jets

Record: 1-1

Previous Ranking: 29

Geno Smith has a minus-three turnover ratio. Ouch.

26. Carolina Panthers

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 23

Carolina’s offense cannot throw the ball nor can the defense prevent the opposition from completing passes. That’s a bad combination in modern football.

25. Buffalo Bills

Record: 1-1

Previous Ranking: 28

E.J. Manuel and the Bills are not a very good team, but not necessarily a push over either. They could be a surprise 8-8 team this season.

24. Minnesota Vikings

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 22

It’s Adrian Peterson against the world, again. Minnesota has serious issues at quarterback.

23. Washington

Record: 0-2

Previous Ranking: 17

Washington needs RGIII to run around more, but is that what is in the best interest of the franchise’s future? This is starting to look like a lot season.
