Updated NFC West roster rankings

Here is an updated version of my NFC West roster rankings. In this version I grade each position group on a 1-100 scale, and then I average each team’s scores to come up with a final ranking.

If you have any questions about my rankings, please write them in the comment section and I will do my best to respond.
