Jaguars No. 31 in NFL Power Rankings

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Since the NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars found out they still have trouble running the ball and that people apparently aren't too impressed with the upgrades they've made along the defensive line. Not even the fact that rookie quarterback Blake Bortles appears to have a bright future in the NFL was enough to keep them from dropping in ESPN's NFL Power Rankings.

The Jaguars came in at No. 31 on Tuesday afternoon in the first edition of the 2014 rankings, one spot below where they were ranked in the days after the draft.

The Oakland Raiders were last. Seattle, Denver, New England, San Francisco and New Orleans were ranked Nos. 1-5, respectively.

The voting process for the rankings has been expanded and given a catchy name: the ESPN Power Panel. It is comprised of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities.
