Now that the 2019 NFL Draft is over, expect many of the bigger platforms to offer updated power rankings.

We’ve got our first such offering from NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison today.

Since his last ranking back amid free agency, he’s flipped his top two with the New Orleans Saints supplanting the New England Patriots in the top spot.

He hasn’t budged on the Los Angeles Rams though keeping them at #3:

Like the Saints, the Rams were devoid of a first-round pick. Waaaah! This group is ready to return to the Super Bowl, with a little luck. All eyes will be on running back Todd Gurley and his workload come August. Methinks Cooper Kupp’ s torn ACL last November was downplayed -- or flat overlooked -- in terms of the effect it had on Los Angeles’s season and the 2019 ceiling. Facing the likes of Kupp, Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks in practice will only help the game of the Rams’ first pick, safety Taylor Rapp. Rapp = a steal late in the second round.

Suffice to say, expectations are going to remain sky-high for Rams fans heading into this season.
