    Secondary Rankings (06/17/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    2015 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. This 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.

    Rankings: offensive skill positions (including quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends). Offensive line, defensive line, linebackers and defensive secondary rankings will be revealed in the coming days.
