My NFL Draft Top 15

In Focus - the AFC East

The AFC East is still the New England Patriots domain and they will be favored to win their staggering 13th divisional title over the past fourteen years and 8th straight. The Patriots have not lost more than 6 games since the 2002 season and their team looks poised for yet another trip to the playoffs. An amazing model of consistency, the Patriots have gone 12-4 in each of the past four seasons and their run of success is becoming legendary.

That said there is some developments in the East that 'could' result in a contested division in 2016. The first and most important development that could hurt the Patriots is the ongoing Deflategate scandal that will not go away. Once again, Tom Brady appears to be headed to a four-game suspension but once again, Brady and his team of lawyers are trying to block the suspension in court. If Brady is available throughout the season, it is very unlikely that the Patriots fall from their perch atop the East. However if Brady is unavailable for four games that could open the door for the Bills, Dolphins or Jets to jump out to a valuable lead in the division.

The other area to highlight here is the continued improvement in Buffalo and the multiple changes in Miami that could cause the team to explode or implode in 2016. It would take several jumps forward for any team other than the Patriots to win the division but there is room for optimism here.

Breaking down the Patriots, they always seem to thrive despite mediocre talent at both running back and receiver. The Patriots are masters at using the right players in the right situations and getting the most out of every player on the roster. The bad news for the rest of the divison, for the rest of the conference and in fact the rest of the league is that the Patriots made improvements this offseason that will help them improve which is a scary thought for a 12-4 team. Defensive end Chris Long was brought in and will improve the position while the highlight of their offseason is likely Shea McClellin who looks capable of stardom as a physical linebacker. The Patriots added several pieces in fact through free agency and the draft that will contribute and if Tom Brady is not suspended, a 13-3 record is likely and the top seed in the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills had a quiet free agency period but made up for that in the draft when they drafted potentially four defensive starters led by Clemson star defensive end Shaq Lawson who could be a star at the next level. Reggie Ragland is an old school inside linebacker that can hit. He will make the Bills interior defense nasty and physical. Adolphus Washington is a big, physical interior defensive lineman that will be a pain to try and block every play. He will make a difference as a rookie.

Offensively, the Bills are very similar to last year which is not necessarily a bad thing as strides were made on that side of the ball. I love the draft pick of Jonathan Williams whom I believe will put up good numbers by next season. 2016 however still belongs to LeSean McCoy and he will be leaned on in the backfield along with 2nd year back Karlos Williams. Tyrod Taylor was a big surprise at quarterback and had himself a very nice season. He was pretty accurate in passing with 20 touchdowns against only 6 picks and made many great plays with his legs. He stabilized the offense and could be stronger this season. Sammy Watkins has the tools to be an elite wide receiver if he continues to work on his game. He caught 60 passes for 1047 yards and 9 touchdowns last year and has 80+ reception potential. Unfortunately for the Bills, the schedule is not easy and 9-7 may be the high water mark. There is potential for an 11-5 season though if Taylor continues to improve and the rookie defensive players star.

The Miami Dolphins are tough to figure out at this time with all the changes and there is huge opportunity here to boon and perhaps equally huge chance of tanking depending on how new head coach Adam Gase and the many new players perform. The Dolphins had a busy free agent period, losing great players such as RB Lamar Miller, DE Olivier Vernon, CB Brent Grimes and WR Rishard Matthews. However they also picked up former 1st overall pick DE Mario Williams, a dependable veteran DE in Andre Branch and a few other veteran players with potential to start. The draft brought in a stud offensive lineman in Laremy Tunsil who plummeted down the draft due to a drug photo that leaked out. Puffing on a bong though will not keep him from elevating the Dolphins offensive line. The Dolphins also added my favorite cornerback in the entire draft in Xavien Howard who is equally talented in press and release coverage. He is big, physical and will make plays. I love the Kenyan Drake pick and the Alabama will take the 3rd Down / change of pace role for the team. The Dolphins added a pair of young, talented receivers in the draft as well go with young starting receivers DeVante Parker and star Jarvis Landry. The Dolphins should be decent on defense so the key to their season will be if Ryan Tannehill can reach the next level in his development. If he does, an 11-5 season is possible but equally possible is a 6-10 disappointment. Put a gun to my head and I will pick the Dolphins to go 11-5 but it is not a confident pick.

The New York Jets had a strange offseason this season. It kind of feels like three steps forward and three steps backwards for the New York Jets. They lost a good defensive lineman in Damon Harrison but picked up Steve McLendon to offset that loss. They lost veteran running backs Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley but were able to add talented veteran Matt Forte and journeyman Khiry Robinson. They lost dependable starting linebacker Demario Davis but hope to replace him with draft pick Darron Lee of Ohio State. Ryan Fitzpatrick remains unsigned looking for big contract and Jets drafted Christian Hackenberg of Penn State. I really didn't love the Jets draft class this year and they may not get a lot of help from it in 2016. If treading water was the goal in New York they accomplished it in spades but with Buffalo and Miami possibly stronger heading into the season, the Jets may be hard pressed to match last season's win total. If they manage to sign Ryan Fitzpatrick who is looking for a huge payday the Jets chances will elevate but just like the Bills and Dolphins there is boom or bust potential here. Wtih Ryan Fitzpatrick I see the Jets possibly going 9-7.

The three teams in the AFC East better hope the Patriots lose Tom Brady for four games to give them a chance as the schedules are tough enough to make it very difficult to dethrone the Patriots from their lofty perch.
