Scout.com divisional rankings

Posted May 20, 2011


The NFC North represented the strongest division in the NFL, according to the Scout.com team publisher rankings, but the Vikings didn't help the North's cause.

The NFC North finished as the strongest division among the Scout.com publishers' rankings following the draft, but the Vikings didn't help promote that ranking, finishing fourth in the NFC North.

Team publishers were asked to rank all 32 teams and those rankings were compiled and analyzed. Earlier, we unvieled the overall rankings, but now we take a division-by-division look at how teams fared. They are listed alphabetically below because there are several sub-categories with each team -- where they finished in the division, where they finished among all 32 teams, and the lowest and highest they were ranked among the individual team publishers.

 With that explanation, here are the rankings by division for your own analysis:
