- WR Demario Douglas, New England Patriots (85.0 PFF receiving grade): He is primed to tear up the Houston Texans’ slot coverage.
- WR John Metchie III, Houston Texans (79.5 PFF receiving grade): He makes his NFL debut on Thursday night.
- RB DeWayne McBride, Minnesota Vikings (94.1 PFF offense grade): He should lead the team in rushing attempts against a lackluster Seattle Seahawks defensive front.
- The underrated Josh Allen: The Jacksonville Jaguars’ top edge defender checks all the boxes to push for EDGE1 this coming season.
- Don’t forget about Dre: San Francisco 49ers’ linebacker Dre Greenlaw doesn’t get the recognition of his partner Fred Warner but has just as good of a shot to be LB1 this season.
- A top-three option in my ranks going outside the top-10 at his position: Washington Commanders safety Kamren Curl has S1 potential for 2023 but can be had much later in drafts.
- Bijan Robinson is an elite talent: Robinson has a better run grade than any college running back of the past nine years.
- The Atlanta Falcons‘ offensive line is also elite: Their line consists of three of the league's best run blockers along with two average run blockers.
- Atlanta’s young skill players could be a problem: Tyler Allgeier put together a great rookie season while the team has invested a lot in Drake London and Kyle Pitts.
- The preseason can highlight rookies who will start strong: The rookies who played significantly with the starters in the preseason tended to play significantly with the starters to begin the regular season.
- The preseason can also raise red flags on sleeper tight ends: If a tight end is only playing a specific role in the offense in the preseason, at best, they will only have that role in the regular season.
- You need to know what to ignore: There are plenty of things in the preseason that might seem like a problem, but it probably isn’t.
- Jalen Hurts leads the quarterbacks: Hurts has the right combination of passing, rushing, youth, young receivers and stability in his offense to be the first quarterback picked.
- Justin Fields rounds out the top-two tiers: Fields put up extraordinary numbers as a rusher and now, he has a new top receiver.
- The value of elite quarterbacks is on the rise: With Tom Brady retired and other older quarterbacks' play declining, there is more scarcity of great quarterbacks compared to recent seasons.
