ESPN.com unveils its "training camp" power rankings today, with eight writers casting votes, and the Patriots are in the No. 1 spot.
In a detailed breakdown, there is also a chart showing how each writer voted.
Furthermore, a look at the NFC West blog on ESPN.com has an entry showing the teams in which voters graded with the most disparity. The Patriots also stood out in that chart, as the team's highest ranking from an individual voter was No. 1, while the lowest was No. 3. That gave them a "disparity" grade of 2, smallest in the league.
