2012 NFL Power Rankings: Post-draft
The 2012 draft is in the books. Free agency has slowed to a crawl.
At this stage of the game, you basically have what you have. The teams know it. Our voters (ESPN.com's John Clayton, ESPN.com's Ashley Fox, AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, NFC West blogger Mike Sando and AFC East blogger James Walker) know it, too.
So after a draft in which potential franchise quarterbacks went first and second, has the league's balance of power been altered? In short, not really.
The Giants, thanks to a Super Bowl title and another solid offseason, remain No. 1. The Colts, despite landing Andrew Luck and other offensive firepower, are still last. The Patriots, after using six draft picks to fortify a much-maligned defense, remain a viable force at No. 2.
The Eagles are the biggest movers since our last installment, jumping five spots to No. 7. The Bengals moved up three positions to No. 16. The Panthers' three-spot drop to No. 21 represents the biggest fall.
