With the start of the summer season, it’s officially time to get hyped for the upcoming football season. What better way to get hyped for the upcoming season than to rank EVERY SINGLE STARTER IN THE NFL? I’ve been doing this for over five years now and trust me when I say…..it’s a good tool to measure how good your favorite football team is going to be this season.

Now, before we move forward with the list, there are a few things I need to remind you of before we get to the good stuff.

First of all, this is a power rankings that is going off what the player did last season.

This isn’t a list of which players I would take on my team, which players I think are the best, or a ranking of what the player has done for his career. It’s just going off what the player did last year and where I would rank them heading into this season.

Injuries matter here. If the player didn’t play, he’s not going to be ranked high. I don’t care if his name is Tom Brady.

Rookies are always ranked low. They haven’t played a snap in the league yet folks. The unknown doesn’t get ranked above what we’ve already seen on-the-field.

Simple enough?

Good, because we have lift off……….
