    EDGE:
    1. Dallas: DLaw & Quinn, who is past his prime, make a formidable tandem
    2. Skins: Kerrigan on pace for the Hall of Very Good and Sweat could be a steal if he lives up to his pre-draft hype.
    3. Eagles: Losing Long and Bennett hurts the depth here, but Barnett should continue to improve and Graham is as solid as they come.
    4. Giants: Team sees a “deadly pass rusher” in Lorenzo Carter, he doesn’t have much help these days. Josh Allen at 6 was too obvious.

    INTERIOR:
    1. Eagles: Cox is a menace, Jackson looks to return his old self. Still wondering how Jernigan hurt his back.
    2. Skins: Payne, Allen and Iodonis make up a great young core for this defense.
    3. Giants: Lawrence is intriguing if he can get after the QB, otherwise Gettlemen spent a 1st on a 2 down player. Talvinson and BJ Hill are respectable.
    4. Dallas: Are there any two players in this division overhyped more than Malik Collins and Tyrone Crawford? Reader, there are not. Trysten Hill was seen as an overdraft by some.

    LB’s:
    1. Dallas: Dallas may have the best young group of LB’s in the NFL. That and 3 bucks will get you a coffee.
    2. Eagles: Bradham and Gruger-Hill make up a solid starting duo with Zach Brown and his pair of jeans that fit just right providing depth on early downs.
    3. Skins: Bostic and Foster seem like JAG’s who benefit from the guys in front of them. The team spent a fortune on Landon Collins this offseason to sure up this unit.
    4. Giants: Ogletree is the 4th highest paid ILB in the league. lolGettlemen.

    Safeties:
    1. Eagles: Jenkins and McCloud(when healthy) make up one of the better tandems in the league. Still wish the Birds would have played the McCloud situation differently.
    2. Giants: Peppers and Bethea have potential to be solid.
    3. Skins: Montae Nicholson looks to return to his 2017 form while Deshazor Everett looks for more cheap shots to take.
    4. Dallas: Jeff Heath ensures a 4th place finish here.

    Cornerbacks:
    1. Dallas: Byron Jones had a superb year last year and may be on his way out due to $$$$, I prefer Lewis to Awudzie.
    2. Giants: Jenkins is still a good CB, I like the 2 young guys in Baker and Love, will Beal make it out of preseason with that shoulder?
    3. Skins: Norman is not worth his contract, Moreau has shown some early promise. DRC is back, no idea what he’ll look like.
    4. Eagles: Lots of youth, lots of potential, that and 20 bucks gets you a run at Mrs. Mosely.

    Punters:
    1. Skins: Way is an inside 20 yard line master.
    2. Eagles: Johnson was 3rd in the NFL in total average last season.
    3. Dallas: Chris Jones. F Dallas
    4. Giants: Riley Dixon, Giants punter or country music phenom?

    Head Coaches:
    1. Eagles: Takes big balls to pull off a visor.
    2. Dallas: Clap On….. Clap Off.
    3. Skins: Hoping for roster health per usual.
    4. Giants: Schurmer and Gettlemen are an amazing duo and I hope they are around forever.
