28. St. Louis Rams
The Rams have replaced injury prone quarterback Sam Bradford with Nick Foles, who has yet to play a full season in the NFL. They’ve also drafted Todd Gurley to help out with the run game after he’s finished recovering from his torn ACL. Second year pro Tre Mason will be the lead back until Gurley is 100%.
The offensive line took a hit this year after losing Jake Long, but the Rams will have powerful 2014 first round draft pick Greg Robinson fill in for him. The Rams made key moves over the offseason to beef up their defense by adding Akeem Ayers and Nick Fairley, but the offense is too shaky for me to put them any higher than 28th on this list.
27. Oakland Raiders
Derek Carr’s rookie season went even better than expected. Carr had a touchdown to interception ratio of 21 to 12 last season, an impressive ratio, especially for a rookie quarterback who’s number one receiver was James Jones. Now with the addition of Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper, expect the young quarterback to perform even better on his sophomore season.
The Raiders largest issue is not the offense, but their defense that has struggled for several years now.
