Over the course of the past few weeks, Pat Kirwan has compiled lists for the top quarterbacks, running backs and receivers in the game. Only four teams had players ranked among the top 15 at each of the three positions:
Michael Turner: A solid workhorse who finished third in the league in rushing and tied for fourth in rushing touchdowns. The Falcons' passing game creates conflicts for defenses, and Turner will benefit from a high number of run audibles against two-high safeties. He could have a big year.
Which offense is most explosive?
Matt Ryan: A rising star with 66 touchdown passes and just 34 interceptions in his first three years.
Arian Foster: A rising star who did it all in his first season as a starter, finishing first in rushing yards and second in runs of more than 10 yards.
Matt Schaub: Probably belongs in the top 10, but winning has to be part of the equation to move up. He threw for 4,370 yards and 24 touchdowns last season.
Michael Vick: He turned his life around and not only recaptured his career, but has improved as a quarterback.
LeSean McCoy: McCoy led the NFL in receptions (78) among running backs and was fourth in yards from scrimmage. He's on his way to big things.
Eli Manning: He appears to be underrated with 4,000-plus passing yards while ranking fourth in touchdown passes (31).
Ahmad Bradshaw: He's an explosive back and a threat as a receiver. He moved into the feature role last season ahead of Brandon Jacobs and had a ratio of 1:8 in 10-yard runs per attempt. He could be a free agent this year.
