The 2012 NFL season will be remembered most for the impact of several rookies. The top two picks in the draft, quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III lead their teams to the playoffs, while third rounder Russell Wilson did the same. However it was Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens who came out as champions.
So what should we expect for 2013? The Ravens return with a very different looking roster, the NFC champion 49ers will be without their top receiver, and the always in contention New England Patriots lost two of their top targets this off season. Will Aaron Rodgers lead the Packers to another ring? Will Anquan Boldin be able to replace Michael Crabtree in San Francisco? Or will an underdog unexpectedly rise to the top and take home the Lombardi Trophy? None of these questions can be answered for sure at this point, but we can attempt them. With that here are my NFL Power Rankings to start off the 2013 season.
