NFL Power Rankings: Giants No. 3, Jets No. 17 After NFL Draft

Offseason NFL Power Rankings are pretty much meaningless. Just fodder for discussion. But, hey, it is the NFL offseason, the draft is over and training camps don't start for months. So, what else have we got to talk about?

That said, our friends at SB Nation have released 2012 NFL Offseason Power Rankings based on free agency, the draft and where things left off last season -- with the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl. SB Nation has the defending champion Giants ranked No. 3, while the middling New York Jets are ranked, appropriately, right in the middle. The Jets are No. 17.
