The draft is over, you know it, I know it, even my grandmother knows it. Now is the time to sit back, relax and analyze the snot out of each and every team’s off-season performance. In this article I will be ranking, from 1-5, the top Post-Draft defenses in the NFL given the circumstances of their draft selections, their performance last season and their overall potential next season. Most of these teams will not surprise you, however there was a little shake up with the fourth and fifth spots in the power rankings. If you are curious about the top teams offenses, you can check out my articles here and here. With these defensive selections, I understand that they are sort of no-brainers. That is why I am going to show all of the possible angles that make the individual teams so good. Typically teams with top-5 offenses ended up making the playoffs or (as we saw with the Seahawks) actually win the Super Bowl. Whether it be free agents or draft picks or just current personnel, I will make sure to go through each pick and explain why they deserve your vote as the best in the league.
