KC Joyner, NFL writer: Todd Gurley II, RB, Los Angeles Rams. The Rams rank second in my offensive blocking wall projections for 2018. Combine that with their superb offseason additions, and this is a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Gurley is rightly seen as being the best player on this team, so that would give him an inside track to ending the quarterback position's recent dominance of this award.
Which offseason addition will make the biggest impact in 2018?
Mike Clay, NFL writer: Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, CBs, Los Angeles Rams. It's hard to mention one without the other, so I'm going to cheat and go with the two trades the Rams made to acquire superstar corners Peters and Talib. Yes, Peters has some off-the-field concerns, and Talib is now 32, but both have been top-10 performers at the position the past few seasons and, along with Ndamukong Suh, help position the Rams as legit Super Bowl contenders in 2018.
Which team improved the most this offseason?
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Los Angeles Rams. The arrow is pointing up for the Bears and Browns after productive offseasons, but I'm looking at the Rams due to the proven, veteran talent they brought in via trades and free agency. Cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib have the playmaking skills to find the ball in the secondary. Go get it. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh bolsters the interior of the front line next to All-Pro Aaron Donald. Wide receiver Brandin Cooks is an upgrade for the passing game. Strong, aggressive moves put this squad in position to win the NFC West and make a serious playoff run.
