Morning take: Tressel likes Wells in Cleveland
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:
- Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel thinks the Cleveland Browns would be wise to take Buckeye tailback Chris "Beanie” Wells in the first round.
Morning take: There is nothing wrong with sticking up for your player. But No. 5 overall is too high to take a running back with a long injury history.
- Former Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams is visiting the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: In a physical division, the Bengals could use an enforcer in the back of the defense. If health is not an issue, this may not be a bad move.
Morning take: Pace would be expected to play on the right side, which makes you wonder what this would mean for current Ravens tackle Willie Anderson?
- University of Cal center Alex Mack, widely considered the best at his position, had an impressive Pro Day Wednesday.
Morning take: Every team in the AFC North take note. Center is the one position all four teams could address at some point in next month's NFL draft.
