Thoughts on 49ers' Power Rankings

5/12/2014

The NFL draft is over and the 2014 rosters are essentially set save for some tinkering here and there.

ESPN.com has come out with its post-draft NFL Power Rankings. The San Francisco 49ers are ranked No. 3. They are behind the reigning champion Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, who were blown away in the Super Bowl.

If I had a vote, I would have put the 49ers at No. 2. They nearly won at Seattle in the NFC title game. The Seahawks and 49ers, in my opinion, are the class of the NFL.

The 49ers got better during the draft. There is no doubt they will remain a top team barring major injury. Overall, it's difficult to complain about being ranked No. 3, but there is evidence that the 49ers probably should be ranked just below their NFC West rival.
