19. Detroit Lions

My dark-horse pick this year. Calvin Johnson needed a ground game and Reggie Bush does just that. Lets hope he stay healthy.

MVP: Calvin Johnson

20. Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly make this outfit.

MVP: Luke Kuechly

21. Arizona Cardinals

A young defense with X factors at corner and safety. Carson Palmer an upgrade from John Skelton.

MVP: Patrick Peterson

22. Pittsburgh Steelers

No glimpse of an impact runner, an aging defense in a tough division. Don’t count them out but I don’t see them playoff-bound this year.

MVP: Ben Roethlisberger

23. Philadelphia Eagles

Could surprise on offence, but injuries may take their toll down the road.

MVP: LeSean McCoy

24. Kansas City Chiefs

Has potential over the next few years. Hopefully, Andy Reid turns them around.

MVP: Jamaal Charles

25. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Defense could lead them. Offence should follow. Tough division though.

MVP: Darrelle Revis

26. Tennessee Titans

Jake Locker leaves a lot to be desired. Look for them to run the ball a lot to have any kind of offensive consistency.

MVP: Chris Johnson

27. San Diego Chargers

Lacking talent everywhere combined with a depleted o-Line spells disaster for Mike McCoy in his first year as a head coach.

MVP: Phillip Rivers

28. Cleveland Browns

On the up and up. Again, tough division is their downfall.

MVP: Trent Richardson

29. Buffalo Bills

QB still a question. Got some talent in place, but not well-rounded enough.

MVP: CJ Spiller
