AFC East: June stock watch

New England Patriots, FLAT: Not a lot has changed in the AFC East since we last visited the division after the draft. The Patriots are still the team to beat, hands down. Although their stock is flat, that's not a reflection of the quality of the team. You can't go any higher than Super Bowl contender, and that's where the Patriots are at.

Miami Dolphins, FLATSome would say the Dolphins are looking better since last month, and others would disagree. At the end of the day, it's hard to predict the Dolphins' stock. They're really young, but on the other hand, they're expected to make a nice jump in 2013. Whether that happens or not will determine how far they go, but if this were a real stock, I'd stay far, far away from picking the Dolphins to make a jump.

New York Jets, DOWNSince the draft, the Jets have had more than a little bad news. David Garrard is now out of the quarterback mix, and Geno Smith has yet to impress. In Mark Sanchez's first day of practice, he threw three interceptions. The Jets' hopes for 2013 continue to fall, but they're still not the worst team in the division.

Buffalo Bills, ROCK BOTTOM FLATSpeaking of the worst team in the division, there remains no hope in Buffalo. The Bills have little to no weapons on offense, a rookie quarterback that is perceived to have been greatly overvalued by the Bills, and it's unclear if they'll be able to field a respectable defense. Other bad teams around the league have made strides in the right direction, but not so in Buffalo. Expect the Bills to have a very high draft position at the end of the year.
