NFL.com Power Rankings Has the Browns at No. 24 Overall

USA TODAY Sports

A few days ago, NFL.com posted their pre-training camp power rankings. The Cleveland Browns were ranked last in the division, but still had a fairly respectable No. 24 overall ranking, which isn't too bad for the media's perception of our team:

The Cleveland Browns went about practice sessions a bit differently under Rob Chudzinski and Norv Turner. Differently? OK, call it faster. Turner desires two things: 1) getting the play called expeditiously, and more importantly, 2) training Brandon Weeden to get the ball out of his hand quicker. Playing with a sense of urgency -- a trait from Turner's tenure as Jimmy Johnson's offensive coordinator in Dallas.

The "sense of urgency" is something that we haven't heard the local media talk about much through the offseason programs. Making sure Brandon Weeden gets the ball out of his hand quicker is definitely a part of his game he needs to work on; in fact, it was the one big thing we pointed out for him in our training camp preview on quarterbacks.

The AFC is not the powerhouse of the NFL anymore, with the Seahawks, 49ers, Falcons, and Packers occupying four of the top five spots. The Steelers are the closest AFC North team to the Browns at No. 18 overall. Are there any rankings that you disagree with?
