Which NFL rivalries are the best?
With the Subway Series returning this weekend, Thursday’s PFT Live draft pondered the best rivalries in all of football. (Yes, the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry carries much more weight than the Mets-Yankees rivalry, but work with me on this.)

You can now chime in. But you need to check out the video first. And you should.
Rosen has solid mechanics and footwork. He is also willing to stand in the face of pocket pressure to make a large repertoire of throws. He has had some accuracy problems when forced to throw on the move. Rosen also has injury concerns, including concussion issues and shoulder surgery. Lastly, fair or not, he carries a perception that he’s difficult to coach.
He is poised to be a dominant player in run defense and has the potential to be disruptive in the interior pass rush. Payne consistently plays with effort and showed he loves the spotlight with his work in the Sugar Bowl against Clemson. He had a reception for a touchdown and an interception.
Jones missed all of the 2015 season with a torn calf, split the 2016 season between the Dolphins and 49ers and spent last season on injured reserve. He has 102 tackles and nine sacks for his career.

The road to recovery will likely be a long one for Shazier, but it’s certainly a positive sign to see him working out like he is.
Ryan Shazier will be involved with the Steelers in 2018 despite the fact he will not play due to a spinal-cord injury sustained last season, and Wednesday, Pittsburgh gave a glimpse into how the Pro Bowl linebacker may factor into the team’s plans.
