    Secondary Rankings (06/10/14)

    By John Ewing
    NFL Positional Power Rankings – ranking every player in the NFL by position.

    Our NFL Positional Power Rankings are based on an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player. These are the same rankings we share with NFL teams to discuss draft and roster creation as well as the basis for all of our NFL Draft content including 2014 Top 250 Rankings. The impact score is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions. A score of seven or above can generally outperform a replacement player in the NFL at his position; an eight or above can be expected to start adequately and a player with a rating over nine is a unique, game-changing athlete.

    Why are positional rankings important? The ratings used in the positional rankings analysis are directly tied to the objective used to run each NFL regular and postseason game 50,000 times. The relative strengths and weakness of the teams have helped go 35-9 (80% ATS) all-time in the NFL Playoffs.

    Rankings: offensive skill positions (including quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends), offensive line, defensive line and linebackers.

    Secondary Highlights
    • The highest rated player: New England Patriots' Devin McCourty (9.1 out of 10).
    • There are only two players that earned a ranking of 9.0 or better and both play for the Patriots. In addition to McCourty, Darrelle Revis has an impact score of 9.0 out of 10.
    • The highest rated corners: New England Patriots' Darrelle Revis (9.0 out of 10), Denver Broncos' Chris Harris (8.9 out of 10) and Miami Dolphins' Brent Grimes (8.9 out of 10).
    • The highest rated safeties: New England Patriots' Devin McCourty (9.1 out of 10), Arizona Cardinals' Tyrann Mathieu (8.9 out of 10) and Kansas City Chiefs' Eric Berry (8.9 out of 10). Note: some of Mathieu's value comes from his ability to also play slot corner and contribute on special teams.
    • Twelve rookies, by our rankings, are capable of starting in the secondary this fall.
    • Richard Sherman is the highest paid cornerback in the game but his impact score (8.7 out of 10) ranks as just the ninth best among players in the defensive secondary.
    • Teams ranked No. 2, No. 3, No. 4, No. 5 and No. 7 will all have new starters this fall. Bengals, ranked No. 6, will get Leon Hall back from injury.
