I understand the argument for someone like Marcus Cannon over Cody Ford, but I find it harder with someone like Lawrence Guy over the rookie DT's.

Although that probably has more to do with me knowing next to nothing about Guy (a quick google has him as a very highly rated #10 Dl in PFF's system) whereas the rookies have the wind of the draft hype in their sails.

Lawrence Guy is a decent role player but he plays under half the defensive snaps so you can imagine the new rookie DT's in the division will see much more playing time and be able to pad there stats on passing downs as well.

I forgot to include Kickers and Punters.

You may include those too.

Stephen Gostkowski K (Patriots)
Ryan Allen P (Patriots)

Kickers and Punters, more complicated than just stats in reality. Quite a 'volatile' position to assess too, especially kickers. I'm guessing most of the choices will be 'obvious' but I may be wrong.

Not much competition for Gostkowski here really, and despite the Pats drafting another punter in Rd5 this year i'll just take the easy option and choose Allen.

I'd go the same, although it was a fairly close call between Gostkowski and Hauschka. Harder to judge kickers purely on their own abilities as much depends on the effectiveness of their offenses in moving the ball and creating scoring opportunities.

A lot can depend on how good their ST's unit/coach is too.

AFC East Dream Team


QB: Tom Brady (New England)
RB: Le’Veon Bell (New York Jets)
WR: Robby Anderson (New York Jets)
WR: DeVante Parker (Miami)
WR: Julian Edelman (New England)
TE: Chris Herndon (New York Jets)
LT: Laremy Tunsil (Miami)
LG: Joe Thuney (New England)
C: David Andrews (New England)
RG: Shaq Mason (New England)
RT: Marcus Cannon (New England)

DE: Michael Bennett (New England)
DT: Lawrence Guy (New England)
DT: Leonard Williams (New York Jets)
DE: Jerry Hughes (Buffalo)
LB: Matt Milano (Buffalo)
LB: C.J. Mosley (New York Jets)
CB: Stephon Gilmore (New England)
CB: Xavien Howard (Miami)
CB: Tre’Davious White (Buffalo)
S: Jamal Adams (New York Jets)
S: Devin McCourty (New England)

K: Stephen Gostkowski (New England)
P: Ryan Allen (New England)

Head Coach: Bill Belichick
Uniform: New York Jets
Stadium: Gillette Stadium (New England)


Tom Brady is one of the best Quarterbacks in the league, where as the other Quarterbacks in the division aren’t even in the top 16 QBs.

Le’Veon Bell was the best Running Back in the league prior to sitting out last season, I’d happily gamble on him returning to his best form, as similar to the Quarterbacks in this division - The rest aren’t even in the top 16.

I’ve given Tom Brady his favourite Wide Receiver in Julian Edelman, he’ll be 33 this season but his most recent Superbowl performance sticks in the memory, big game player! Robby Anderson can be hit/miss, but I’m willing to gamble a little bit in these division picks and DeVante is the best of the rest, but had competition from another 3 or 4 receivers. Albert Wilson and Cole Beasley were strong contenders, but Edelman has that slot position locked down.

Chris Herndon had a very good rookie year and none of the other Tight Ends were in consideration here.

The Miami Offensive Line looks horrendous this year outside of Tunsil, on a dream team like this could excel. Kelechi Osemele was one of the best guards in the league a couple of years ago and I think he will bounce back, but Joe Thuney had a great season and I’ll go for who I think would be more reliable. David Andrews has been one of the best centers in the league and Shaq Mason at Guard may have been THE best Guard in the league. Marcus Cannon is the best right Tackle available to become the 4th New England Offensive Lineman on my AFC East team, but I’ve found that this division lacks top quality Tackles.

Offensive Buffalo players: 0
Offensive Miami players: 2
Offensive New England players: 6
Offensive New York Jets players: 3

I went with 4 on the defensive line. Jerry Hughes and Michael Bennett are the ends, they’re both over the age of 30, but they’re still performing. Leonard Williams has always had the potential to be one of the best defensive linemen in the league and maybe with Quinnen Williams alongside him this year he will become that, but I’m going to try and avoid picking rookies and instead I’ll reward Lawrence Guy, who is coming off a great season to partner Leonard Williams on the interior.

I feel that a nickelback would be ideal for this team, so I only have two Linebackers, C.J. Mosley has been one of my favourite middle linebackers for a couple of years now and Matt Milano can partner him here.

The AFC East has a few top quality Cornerbacks, so I’ll go with Stephon Gilmore, Xavien Howard and Tre’Davious White, White will probably slot in at the nickel, but I guess they can rotate around that duty.

Safety is also a position of strength in the AFC East and I was spoilt for choice with Jamal Adams and Devin McCourty as my favourites.

Defensive Buffalo players: 3
Defensive Miami players: 1
Defensive New England players: 4
Defensive New York Jets players: 3

Total Buffalo players: 3
Total Miami players: 3
Total New England players: 12
Total New York Jets players: 6

I’m not a fan of Belichick, but he is a legendary head coach. Gillette Stadium gets the pick over Metlife Stadium, purely because the Jets share it and haven’t made it ‘their own’.

Just for fun, here’s a ‘B team’

QB: Sam Darnold (New York Jets)
RB: Sony Michel (New England)
WR: Quincy Enunwa (New York Jets)
WR: Zay Jones (Buffalo)
WR: Albert Wilson (Miami)
TE: Benjamin Watson (New England)
LT: Dion Dawkins (Buffalo)
LG: Kelechi Osemele (New York Jets)
C: Mitch Morse (Buffalo)
RG: Michael Deiter (Miami)
RT: Cody Ford (Buffalo)

DE: Henry Anderson (New York Jets)
DT: Quinnen Williams (New York Jets)
DT: Christian Wilkins (Miami)
DE: Shaq Lawson (Buffalo)
LB: Kyle Van Noy (New England)
LB: Tremaine Edmunds (Buffalo)
LB: Avery Williamson (New York Jets)
CB: Jason McCourty (New England)
CB: Trumaine Johnson (New York Jets)
S: Minkah Fitzpatrick (Miami)
S: Micah Hyde (Buffalo)

K: Stephen Hauschka (Buffalo)
P: Matt Haack (Miami)

Head Coach: Adam Gase (New York Jets)
Uniform: Buffalo Bills
Stadium: Metlife Stadium (New York Jets)

Total Buffalo players for A team and B team: 3 + 8 (11)
Total Miami players for A team and B team: 3 + 5 (8)
Total New England players for A team and B team: 12 + 4 (16)
Total New York Jets players for A team and B team: 6 + 7 (13)

It is quite close around the Wide Receivers, Right Guards, Defensive Tackles and Linebackers.

AFC North Dream Team:

Offence:

QB: Baker Mayfield (Browns)
RB: Joe Mixon (Bengals)
WR: A.J Green (Bengals)
WR: JuJu Smith-Schuster (Steelers)
WR: Odell Beckham Jr. (Browns)
TE: Vance McDonald (Steelers)

OT: Alejandro Villanueva (Steelers)
OG: Joel Bitoinio (Browns)
OC: Maurkice Pouncey (Steelers)
OG: Marshall Yanda (Ravens)
OT: Jonah Williams (Bengals)


Defence:

DE: Carlos Dunlap (Bengals)
DT: Geno Atkins (Bengals)
DT: Michael Pierce (Ravens)
DE: Myles Garrett (Browns)

LB: Joe Schobert (Browns)
LB: Devin Bush (Steelers)

DB: William Jackson (Bengals)
DB: Marlon Humphrey (Ravens)
DB: Denzel Ward (Browns)
DB: Earl Thomas (Ravens)
DB: Shawn Williams (Bengals)

K: Justin Tucker (Ravens)
P: Britton Colquitt (Browns)

Head Coach: John Harbaugh (Ravens)
Uniform: Steelers
Stadium: M&T Bank Stadium (Ravens)



I found it harder to separate a few more guys this time around.

Baker's star is on the rise which is one of the reasons for picking him. Mixon and Chubb are similar in some respects, but given Mixon has been in the league a year longer (and is slightly younger with less wear on the tyres) I gave him the nod. A mix of threats at receiver which kind of picked themselves. McDonald over Njoku, just have a perception that McDonald is a little more physical.

Plenty to choose from on the OL in the AFC North. Again, a perception that AV is more physical than Ronnie Stanley, and even though it's hard to leave out DeCastro it's even harder to leave out Yanda even if he's heading into the twilight of his career. A dearth of RT's really, so Jonah Williams gets the nod even though he's a rookie.

Cant see a way of building a better 4 man front than what I chose (no doubt others might see it differently). Another rookie in the mix with Devin Bush at LB. He's got the athleticism to have an impact as a rookie. Schobert seems a sound, blue collar type pick alongside him.

Was going to go with 3 safeties again here (with Damarious Randall) but I think it's a waste in terms of how votes will stack up. Humphrey and Jackson have the speed and size to handle the outside, which means Denzel Ward can bump inside. ET at FS, despite the injury, is a no brainer. Shawn Williams as a box safety gives it better balance than Jesse Bates.

Choice of two for HC basically. Both have drawbacks, but the recent issues off the field in Pittsburgh probably nudged me towards Harbaugh.
