Cam Newton made almost everyone around him look better in 2015, but the Carolina Panthers were exposed on the offensive line by an elite defense in Super Bowl 50. GM Dave Gettleman doesn't like his team to lose in the trenches.
Defense is most likely to get all the attention from the Atlanta Falcons in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. Could coach Dan Quinn find a Bobby Wagner clone at middle linebacker in the first round?
Bulking up at center with Pro Bowler Alex Mack not only improves the talent along the offensive line in Atlanta, it boosts the toughness, as well -- perhaps signaling a resurrection of sorts for Ryan and the Falcons.
We've seen this the past four years: the Bengals look great, and then fall apart in the postseason. But they're different this year. Really. And it begins with the play of Andy Dalton, who finally looks comfortable running Cincy's offense.
