Alright guys, this is usually the part where I do my short intro and then jump right into an article. Well I’m going to do things a bit differently this time around.

Today I don’t have an article for you, but I do have rankings. These rankings will changing a lot over the next few months but I wanted to get down my first take on positional rankings for 2018.

Usually I would explain all of my thoughts to you guys, but ain’t nobody got time for that when it comes to ranking 115 NFL players. If you want to take a look inside of my brain, check out my earlier articles regarding my “Way Too Early Look” at positional rankings. Keep in mind, however, that those articles were written almost two months ago, so obviously my rankings have changed a bit since then!
