NFC South teams were high rollers during this year's free agency madness.

All four teams made a variety of moves, with each having varying degrees of impact. As we steam ahead toward the NFL Draft, it's a good time to stop and take stock of where each team in the division stands.

What better way to do that then with some good ol' fashioned power rankings?

Rather than look at teams in their totality, let's break things down to a more granular level -- each team's positional groups as they currently are. Everyone made moves, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers bringing back Baker Mayfield and Mike Evans, to the Atlanta Falcons paying $180 million for Kirk Cousins.

Most experts have weighed in on the individual deals, but what impact will it all have when stacking each offense against one another?

NFC South Power Rankings: Who has the best offense post-Free Agency?


1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Baker Mayfield, Kyle Trask
2. Atlanta Falcons - Kirk Cousins, Taylor Heinicke
3. New Orleans Saints - Derek Carr, Taysom Hill
4. Carolina Panthers - Bryce Young, Andy Dalton

Atlanta made the biggest splash here by giving Kirk Cousins $100 million guaranteed. He's been a good quarterback most of his career.

However, he is 35 and coming off a torn Achilles. Baker Mayfield on the other hand, is coming off of the best season of his career in 2023. Derek Carr just continues to simply exist in the NFL. Bryce Young.....is Bryce Young.

Running Back

1. Atlanta Falcons - Bijan Robinson, Tyler Allgeier
2. New Orleans Saints - Alvin Kamara, Kendre Miller, Jamaal Williams
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Rachaad White, Chase Edmonds
4. Carolina Panthers - Chuba Hubbard, Miles Sanders

It is hard to top the pairing of Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier in Atlanta. Bijan is one of the most dynamic offensive weapons in the NFL. Allgeier is a 1000k yard rusher in this league.

While he might no longer be at the peak of his powers, Alvin Kamara is still one of the best running backs in the league when fully healthy. He can do everything you want and more. He is the Saints biggest weapon by far. Jamaal Williams is a non-factor.

I have loved the progress shown by Rachaad White in his first two years in the league. He has already shown himself to be one of the best pass catching backs in the league. If he can keep growing and rounding out the rest of his game, this ranking could change sooner than later.

In Carolina both Chuba Hubbard and Miles Sanders are perfectly serviceable backs and nothing more. They cannot dominate a game like the other three groups in the division.
