Pre-Season Picks

I have the three pro teams that I think will be drastically better this year than last. No champions, maybe not even playoffs, just a huge step forward from last year:

Jacksonville-The most aggressive team signing free agents in the offseason, signed the top prize of the free agent season, Malik Jackson from Denver, possesses an excellent crop of rookies who can step right in and help.

Oakland-The offensive line is drastically improved, have two extremely capable replacements for the retired Charles Woodson in Karl Joseph and Reggie Nelson.

Tennessee-Traded out of the top spot for a ton of extra picks, which were utilized very wisely, RB position vastly improved with the addition of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, offensive line drastically improved.

The football season is fast approaching. The teams I like week to week will vary greatly based upon matchups, perceived momentum and other factors like home field, weather etc,,

In no particular order, some teams I like to have a much better year this year than last are:

Maryland-Vastly more experienced than last year, first four games a cupcake schedule and a new head coach with plenty of experience in the assistant ranks.

Wake Forest-Like Maryland, vastly more experienced, 7 home games (6 vs. teams with a losing record last year.)

Nebraska-Lost five games last year in last minute of play, consistently outgain opponents, new offense and defense last year and 13 returning starters.
