It's about that time. The start of summer is just around the corner, as we near June 21... wait... how am I sitting through three days of temperatures above 95 and it's not summer yet?! Summer is here! Forget this solstice junk.

It's also time for some updated rankings. I won't kid you, the rankings will change from now until Week 1 more than once. However, we have a better idea of teams' plans now than we did after last month's NFL Draft. The lists have grown too, so enjoy the rankings goodness, and feel free to comment below with any questions or disagreements (I don't expect much of the latter).
