Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:

Morning take: Wow, this rookie gets it. Now let's see if he can block linebackers James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley coming off the edge.

  • According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns had a "smart" draft.

Morning take: That seems to be a major emphasis of new head coach Eric Mangini. The Browns have a history of making mental errors so, if anything, expect that part to improve next season.

  • The Cincinnati Enquirer gives the Bengals' draft a B-plus grade.

Morning take: This draft has tremendous potential and tremendous bust factor all at the same time. It will be up to the coaching staff to get the former out of this group.

  • Since the Steelers couldn't get a center on Day 1, they settled for Penn State's A.Q. Shipley in the seventh round, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Morning take: I had a feeling Shipley was a fallback option for the Steelers. As a seventh-round pick, his first goal should be to make the team out of training camp.
