Season Outlook Analysis

Offense
Position
Quarterbacks
B+
Goff will continue to grow and get better. Still has not reached his full potential.
Running Backs
A+
Gurley is the most dynamic and electrifying running back in the game. A do it all back. Combination of speed and power is deadly.
Protection & Blocking
B+
Receiving
B
Solid, versatile group. Expect second year Cooper Kupp to take a big leap as Goff's go to target. Bringing in Speedy Brandin Cooks also adds a different dimension and that can stretch the field.

Skills Analysis Notes
Efficient offense that complements passing and running game. Has one of the league top running backs to break open games. A wide range of diverse plays that they use. Successful conversion rate in the red zone.

Defense
Position
Defensive Line
A
The combination of Donald and Suh can be a force to be reckoned with. They will cause major disruption. Will be hard to leave either of them in one-on-one matchups. Should draw a lot of attention which will free up other players on the defense.
Linebackers
C+
A lot of unproven guys.
Defensive Backs
A-
Potential to be elite with the new additions of Peters and Talib. Versatile group at the safety positions that can step into the box and play in coverage.

Skills Analysis Notes
With all the new additions, they can be a top 5 defense in points allowed and turnovers. Adding Suh to the D-Line with Donald is going to cause major problems for opposing coaches to game plan against. Their presence will free up their teammates to make plays. Expect more pressure on QBs leading to more turnovers with the play makers they have in the secondary.

Greg the Leg is a powerful kicker with good long distance accuracy. Punter Johnny Hekker also has a powerful leg with deep punting ability. Controls the field position.

Overall Coaching / School Analysis
Sean McVay shocked most of the world last year. He is an offensive genius and will continue to grow better as an overall coach. Now that he got a taste of being a HC in the playoffs, he understands what it is going to take to advance.

Analysis
Not many holes in this team. Multiple dynamic players on both sides of the ball. A great offensive team last year that just improved their defense a lot. Should complement well to win many games.

Expectations/ Outlook
Have high expectations for them to make a deep run into the playoffs and possibly even making it to the Super Bowl. Much improved defense to complement their already efficient offense. They have many impact players that are going to easily lead them to double digit wins.
