Now that 2015 NFL Draft has come and gone, ESPN.com has decided to update their power rankings now that mock drafts are no longer in vogue.
The Borg Collective at the World Wide Leader of Sports appears to have been very impressed with the Baltimore Ravens draft selections as they have jumped the AFC North team up four spots in their latest rankings.
The ESPN Borg Collective writes of the Ravens draft:
The priority in the draft? Find Joe Flacco someone to throw to. The Ravens drafted four pass-catchers after losing Torrey Smith and Owen Daniels this offseason.
They are obviously referring to the Ravens selecting wide receiver Breshad Perriman and tight end Maxx Williams in the first two rounds, but one has to wonder if that’s enough to jump them up four spots and ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who they dropped three spots in their latest rankings.
The ESPN Borg Collective writes of the Steelers draft:
The Steelers selected three defensive backs in a draft for the first time since 1995 after losing Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor and Brice McCain this offseason.
That sounds like a positive to me, so I’m not sure why it resulted in the Steelers dropping three spots. Besides, hasn’t the national media been calling for the Steelers to get younger on defense for the last six years?
Well, the ESPN Borg Collective achieved their goal of getting us to write about such nonsense, so now I will turn it over to you. Do you think the Ravens drafted better than the Steelers this year when you look at the entire group of selections that both teams made?
