After an eventful postseason which saw Eli Manning lead the Giants to their second Super Bowl title in five seasons, the slate is wiped clean on the 2011 season and all eyes are on April 26th. Every team will be looking forward to NFL draft day as a huge opportunity to not only improve as a team, but to sell to its fan base that they are serious about winning.
The Giants and Packers lead the pack in the pre-draft power rankings. After draft day, there may be significant alterations to some of the bottom-ranked teams depending, on potential trades and/or the selection of their next franchise player.
While it is certain that some teams will overachieve and others will be overrated, the teams will be ranked by their performance last season and acquisitions of players thus far.
