My NFL Draft Top 15





In Focus - the AFC North

The AFC North appears to be a two horse race between last year's nasty rivalry in the playoffs, the Steelers and the Bengals. You can never count out the Ravens as well with the Browns once again in complete rebuilding mode.

The Bengals team is loaded in talent on both offense and defense. The receiver position took a hit this year when they lost both Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency but both of those players were not stars and I love the drafting of Pitt star receiver Tyler Boyd who will thrive with better quarterback play. He has all the tools to be a great NFL receiver and he will keep defenses honest across from superstar A.J. Green. The Bengals have a terrific 1-2 punch at running back although Jeremy Hill needs to do a better job this year and his fumble to lose the playoff game could be difficult to overcome. However Hill has said he used that fumble as motivation all offseason so expect a renewed effort from him this year. Karlos Dansby was added and should start at the Sam linebacker position. He will bring experience and leadership to a defense lacking in both as their breakdown towards the end of the playoff game last year illustrated. Dansby should help bring this group together. With a healthy Andy Dalton and the strength throughout the lineup, a 12-4 season is likely in 2016.

The Pittsburgh Steelers ran into injury concerns last year but still managed to win a playoff game and were one fumble away from perhaps upsetting the future Super Bowl Champion Broncos in Denver. The Steelers always play tough, physical inspired football and there is no real reason to expect otherwise in 2016. The Steelers fortunes do rest with Ben Roethlisberger who has put up monster stats over the past few seasons. He will miss receiver Martavis Bryant who is suspended for the season but Antonio Brown is still a mega star and a combination of Markus Wheaton and Sammie Coates have the talent to elevate their play. Le'Veon Bell had only 113 carries last year due to suspension and injury concerns and he must have 20+ touches throughout the season for the Steelers to have success. He is a difference maker when healthy and gives the Steelers at least a chance to beat out the Bengals for top spot.

Now for the bad news. I feel the Steelers had a terrible off season that could result in them bouncing from a playoff spot. Perhaps the worst offseason in the NFL this season. It's a good thing they are blessed with QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB LeVeon Bell and WR Antonio Brown because the players lost vs. players added is quite poor. The only two players I really like that they brought in are tight end Ladarius Green and veteran offensive lineman Ryan Harris. Green has been buried behind Antonio Gates for years in San Diego and Roethlisberger could make him a star. Ryan Harris will compete for a starting tackle role but his best days are definitely behind him. The Steelers lost several solid depth players but the only player that has a huge impact on them is suspended receiver Martavis Bryant who helped keep focus off of Antonio Brown across from him. Tight end Heath Miller had a long, outstanding career but Ladarius Green is likely a better receiver and the Steelers may consider this a plus.

I really was not a fan of the Steelers draft this season. Artie Burns is a solid cornerback prospect but there were corners I felt were better fits for the Steelers scheme and he may take some time to fine tune his skill set for the next level. Sean Davis I simply am not a big fan of at safety or cornerback. I saw him play in a number of collegiate games and he never jumped out at me as a legitimate prospect. I had many safeties ranked ahead of him but his potential as a cover safety is likely what got him drafted as high as he did. Put it all together and I see an 8-8 season for the Steelers as they fall short of the playoffs

The Ravens may have done enough this offseason to jump ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers into a possible Wild Card slot if their rookie class can make a difference this season. The Ravens had both good and bad moves through free agency but the end result appears to be a 'push' while their draft was 11 players deep with most looking capable of helping the team in 2016. I really like the Kenneth Dixon draft pick and believe the rookie running back could emerge as a starter at some point this season. The Ravens also found a legitimate starting offensive tackle in Ronnnie Staley and several other parts as well. The Ravens must have a healthy Joe Flacco throughout the 2016 campaign and if he is on the field, this team is definitely stronger than they were a year ago. The receiving core is still shaky with a retiring Steve Smith trying to come back from injury to catch lightning in the bottle one more time. Mike Wallace will give the Ravens a deep threat but his inconsistent route running can actually hinder an offense as well. Defensively, the Ravens should be good enough to get the Ravens to 9-7 on the season and 2nd place in the division.

What can I actually say about the Browns. I actually do applaud them for doing the right thing, blowing up a disaster of a roster and going towards a rebuild. They have competition right now at every starting position and playing time will be earned and not assumed. If Robert Griffin can rediscover his skill set that made him a top story as a rookie a few years back, the Browns may have found a piece of the foundation they have been lacking. However Griffin has shown an inability to stay healthy, a lack of improvement and not enough leadership to just assume he will find his game. He could just as easily struggle in his new city but his upside at least gives the Browns some hope that they figure it out. If he doesn't figure it out, young quarterbacks Connor Shaw and Cody Kesler will also get a good, long look with a couple of veterans there if the other options fall down. Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell are solid running back options and if they get blocking could have nice seasons. Johnson in particular is an interesting prospect with great quickness and catching ability. The Browns receiving core has been stripped down and many rookies have been brought in led by 1st round pick Corey Coleman. Coleman has elite speed and quickness and should get a lot of looks this season. I believe the Browns did a super job in the draft this year, adding 14 players and while they did target the receiver position with four picks, they spread out new talent nicely and most should contribute as rookies. All in all it was a good offseason for the Browns but they are a team in transition and 6-10 is likely the best case scenario.

Other than the Cincinnati Bengals, I feel like this division didn't have a good offseason and I can legitimately see only the Bengals making the postseason in 2016.
