If you thought you could escape power rankings until the season, well, ESPN.com has terrible news for you.

The Worldwide Leader released its pre-draft power rankings Tuesday and the Falcons are right near the top after an offseason that has produced the return of Tony Gonzalez and the signing of running back Steven Jackson.

ESPN.com has the Falcons at No. 4, behind Seattle (1), San Francisco (2) and Denver (3).

With free agency still underway and the NFL Draft just about a month away, will the Falcons continue to climb? We’ll have to see, but it should come as no surprise that this team is being talked about among the league’s best.

What do you think?

UPDATE (2:54 p.m.) – NFL.com has also released power rankings today, with a slightly less favorable outlook on the Falcons up to this point. Eliot Harrison has the Falcons at No. 6 and falling behind San Francisco, Denver, New England, Seattle and Baltimore. You can view his rankings here.
