AFC North Draft Recap: Ravens Top Division With An A.

While our talented writers such as Tristan Beckmann and Brian Willis recap individual team drafts lets overview some grades in division groupings. Starting with the AFC North, Enjoy.

AFC North
Cleveland Browns
The Browns chose Baker Mayfield as there future. A bit of a strange pick as Hue Jackson likes tall QB’s more but Mayfield was great in college and will have a bit of time to develop in Cleveland. The Browns passing on Chubb to fulfill a need when quality corners were available in the second round hurts there grade.
Best Pick: Baker Mayfield
Worst Pick: Austin Corbet (better guards were on the board)
Favorite pick: Baker Mayfield
Sleeper: Nick Chubb
Grade: B+



Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals addressed there awful offensive line a key to a good Andy Dalton season. The future was left un fulfilled in this draft though as the Bengals didn’t take a top tier WR to replace AJ Green. The Bengals off season was trying to reload and reform to try to get back into contention, we will see.
Best Pick: Billy Price
Worst Pick: None
Favorite pick: Billy Price
Sleeper: Malik Jefferson
Grade: B



Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens draft picks showed us that Ozzie Newsome is planning for the future. Drafting Lamar Jackson in round one give the Ravens a Joe Flacco Successor and tight end Hayden Hurst gives him a target to throw too right now. Not to mention Newsome addressing a need at tackle with Orlando Brown.
Best Pick: Lamar Jackson QB
Worst Pick: None
Favorite pick: Orlando Brown OT
Sleeper: Anthony Averett
Grade: A



Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers made a head scratching pick in the first round. You cant knock anything the Steelers did though, addressing needs and finding a potential Big Ben replacement in Mason Rudolph. I love the addition of James Washington to the receiving core after trading away Martavis Bryant. This is what the Steelers do, draft well at wide out.
Best Pick: James Washington
Worst Pick: Jaylen Samuels
Favorite pick: James Washington
Sleeper: Chuks Oakafor
Grade: B+
