Football running backs

We are always ranking the different players in college or in the NFL, but we never really compare them against each other to see just how good a football player they are. This is why we are comparing the Top 10 ranked running backs in College, and seeing how they match up against those that are already in the professional arena.

Rank College Player HT/WT Yards TD NFL Comparison
#1 Ohio State Ezekiel Elliot 6’0 225 lb. 1,878 18 Frank Gore
#2 LSU Leonard Fournette 6’1 230 lb. 1,034 10 Adrian Peterson
#3 Pittsburgh James Conner 6’2 240 lb. 1,765 26 Le’Veon Bell
#4 Oklahoma Samaje Perine 5’11 237 lb. 1,713 21 Marshawn Lynch
#5 Georgia Nick Chubb 5’10 220 lb. 1,547 14 Todd Gurley
#6 Oregon Royce Freeman 5’11 230 lb. 1,365 18 Jonathan Stewart
#7 Alabama Derrick Henry 6’3 242 lb. 990 11 Eddie Lacy
#8 UCLA Paul Perkins 5’11 198 lb. 1,575 9 LeSean McCoy
#9 Florida State Dalvin Cook 6’0 203 lb. 1,008 8 Jamaal Charles
#10 San Diego St. Donnel Pumphrey 5’9 170 lb. 1,867 20 C.J. Spiller

This gives a good perspective of how each college player performs, and who they would be compared against doing the same thing in the NFL. These 10 running backs have a great future ahead of them, so be sure to look for them on the football field, and expect them to get drafted soon.

Football quarterbacks

The player that any NFL team’s offense surrounds and depends on to make important plays and touchdowns is none other than the quarterback. This football player is what every offense revolves around, so it is logical that we would rank them to see which has higher odds of winning games this upcoming season.

Ranking of all 32 NFL teams and their star quarterback are:

1 Tom Brady Patriots
2 Aaron Rodgers Packers
3 Andrew Luck Colts
4 Peyton Manning Broncos
5 Ben Roethlisberger Steelers
6 Philip Rivers Chargers
7 Drew Brees Saints
8 Joe Flacco Ravens
9 Matt Ryan Falcons
10 Tony Romo Cowboys
11 Eli Manning Giants
12 Russell Wilson Seahawks
13 Matthew Stafford Lions
14 Carson Palmer Cardinals
15 Ryan Tannehill Dolphins
16 Cam Newton Panthers
17 Jay Cutler Bears
18 Alex Smith Chiefs
19 Derek Carr Raiders
20 Andy Dalton Bengals
21 Colin Kaepernick 49ers
22 Sam Bradford Eagles
23 Teddy Bridgewater Vikings
24 Nick Foles Rams
25 Blake Bortles Jaguars
26 Jameis Winston Buccaneers
27 Geno Smith Jets
28 Brian Hoyer Texans
29 Joch McCown Browns
30 Marcus Mariota Titans
31 Robert Griffin III Washington
32 Matt Cassel Bills

You can see older and more experienced quarterbacks like Brady and Manning; although Peyton Manning will certainly have to consider retirement if the Broncos don’t do well this next season. There are also new quarterbacks that made this list like Bridgewater and Bortles, second year players that have a lot of potential.

Fans can use this list to start predicting how strong an offense will be, although they should take into consideration other handicapping methods where you combine quarterbacks with wide receivers and the rest of the offensive line to create accurate predictions. This list can change throughout the season, so be sure watch the games.

Top Football Offensive Line Team’s

Football offensive line

While the Quarterback, Wide Receivers, and Running Backs tend to shine the most, the entire offensive line of each professional football team are the ones involved that help determine whether a team scores or not. They are the line of defense against the opposing team, where their jobs are to protect the quarterback, open gaps for the running back, and even take a pass if needed.

The strength of the offensive line does not determine if a team will win a game or not, but it usually makes a big difference in the scores. The top 10 teams, with the best overall offensive line in the League are:

  1. Dallas Cowboys: Possible starters: LT Tyron Smith, LG Ronald Leary, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin, RT Doug Free.
  2. Baltimore Ravens: Possible starters: LT Eugene Monroe, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Jeremy Zuttah, RG Marshal Yanda, RT Ricky Wagner.
  3. Philadelphia Eagles: Possible starters: LT Jason Peters, LG Dennis Kelly, C Jason Kelce, RG Allen Barbre, RT Lane Johnson.
  4. Pittsburgh Steelers: Possible starters: LT Kelvin Beachum, LG Ramon Foster, C Maurkice Pouncey, RG David DeCastro, RT Marcus Gilbert.
  5. Green Bay Packers: Possible starters: LT David Bakhtiari, LG Josh Sitton, C Corey Linsley, RG T.J. Lang, RT Bryan Bulaga.
  6. Houston Texans: Possible starters: LT Duane Brown, LG Xavier Su’a-Filo, C Ben Jones, RG Brandon Brooks, RT Derek Newton.
  7. New Orleans Saints: Possible starters: LT Terron Armstead, LG Andrus Peat, C Max Unger, RG Jahri Evans, RT Zach Strief.
  8. New England Patriots: Possible starters: LT Nate Solder, LG Tre’ Jackson, C Bryan Stork, RG Ryan Wendell, RT Sebastian Vollmer .
  9. Cincinnati Bengals: Possible starters: LT Andrew Whitworth, LG Clint Boling, C Russell Bodine, RG Kevin Zeitler, RT Andre Smith.
  10. Seattle Seahawks: Possible starters: LT Russell Okung, LG Alvin Bailey, C Lemuel Jeanpierre, RG J.R. Sweezy, RT Justin Britt.

The rest of the 22 NFL teams and their ranking can be found here. You can see that strong offenses like the Denver Broncos is not on this list, and that could be do to the fact that Peyton Manning keeps getting sacked more often than these other teams.

Knowing before hand which teams have the best offensive line will be a great help when trying to handicap for this upcoming 2015 season, and even help those fans that need to fill their fantasy football roster.

Two undefeated teams left in the NFL

The defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers and the up-and-coming Detroit Lions are the only undefeated teams left in the NFL after Week 4. There wasn’t much doubt or surprise that the Packers would be able to stay undefeated at this point in the NFL regular season, but the Lions have turned a lot of heads thus far with some big wins and an impressive come-from-behind victory against Dallas Cowboys.

Coming into Week 4, the Green Bay Packers had an easy task ahead of them as they were set to go up against the lowly Denver Broncos. With the Packers playing at Lambeau Field and firing on all cylinders coming into this matchup, the Broncos really didn’t stand much of a chance as superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers scored a career-high six touchdowns with four being scored through the air and the other two on the ground.

Needless to say, the Green Bay Packers proved why they are the defending champions by absolutely dominating the Denver Broncos by a score of 49-23. Aaron Rodgers had a career-high with his touchdowns, but also lit up the Broncos’ secondary for 444 total yards (408 passing, 36 rushing). No matter what the Broncos did on defense to try and stop Rodgers, nothing seemed to work as the reigning Super Bowl MVP just dominated the struggling Denver franchise from the word go.

Next week the defending champs will put their undefeated record (4-0) on the line when they take on the Atlanta Falcons (2-2). The Falcons haven’t been the dominant team they were last season as they were only able to win two of their first four games, but they are still a tough challenge for the defending champions as this game could turn out to be one of the best in Week 5.

As for the Detroit Lions, the sky seems to be limit coming into Week 5 as they have gotten off to a red-hot start to the season with a four straight wins and some impressive victories over formidable opponents. Perhaps the Lions most impressive win came last week against the Dallas Cowboys when they were down by 20 points and pulled off the amazing comeback to win their fourth game of the season.

Despite the Cowboys having their fair share of struggles this season; Dallas is still considered one of the best teams in the league with potent offense and a decent defense. The Lions on the other hand have shown time and time again just how good they could be this season, but had yet to be tested by a veteran team like the Cowboys.

After the first half, the Lions looked like they were headed towards their first loss of the season and had little chance of competing in the second half. That couldn’t be further from the truth as the Lions erased a 20-point deficit and pulled off the impressive come-from-behind victory (34-30) with two touchdowns from the dynamic duo of quarterback Matthew Stafford and arguably the best wide receiver in the league in Calvin Johnson.

This win was perhaps the turning point for Detroit with no one doubting this team moving forward. It will be interesting to see what happens in Week 12 when Matthew Stafford and company go head-to-head against Aaron Rodgers’ Packers.
