After an extremely exciting 2011 NFL season and less than respectable off-season for several teams, the 2012 pre-season is almost here. The smell of pigskin is in the air as training camps are in full swing and teams are getting their rosters together. Only two rookies remain unsigned – Justin Blackmon and Kendall Wright – and one has to believe that their agents are likely waiting for the other to sign their contracts.

Is there anything better than sitting back on Sunday’s and watching the NFL package while partaking in fantasy football and placing some friendly wagers on the games? To that, I say no! However, we must wait for these opportunities. That said, there are some team props out there that allow us to get the football juices flowing. The following is our Top 10 NFL Team Props.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars – 5

As mentioned, Justin Blackmon remains unsigned and the rookie wide out isn’t even close to the most impactful player that remains away from training camp. Maurice Jones-Drew has decided to sit out training camp in hopes of getting a new contract. Apparently the two sides are very far apart and Drew has already threatened to holdout into the season. Without the 2011 rushing leader on the field, the Jags will have an extremely ugly season.

Prediction: 3-13

9. Philadelphia Eagles – 10 ½

While I do expect a better year than last for the Eagles, there’s just no way they will reach 11 wins in 2012. While LeSean McCoy is a very talented back, and should be even better this year, he didn’t get much help in the offseason. The wide receiver corps is the same (and possibly worse) and the defense didn’t make any major upgrades.

Prediction: 9-7

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6

This is my surprise pick for the 2012 season. Tampa Bay had a nice offseason; they added Vincent Jackson, Doug Martin (via draft), Mark Barron, Dallas Clark, and a few other high character and talented players. With the Saints having their offseason issues, the Panthers still rebuilding, and the Falcons realizing Matt Ryan isn’t anything special, the Bucs should be good for at least 2-3 more wins than last season (4-12).
