As usual, we have another tough "Take your pick" in the AFC North blog. This week we ask our community which division team had the best 2010 draft class?

Three of the four teams in the AFC North had very productive rookie classes. But which team had the best group of first-year players this past season?

Was it the Cleveland Browns? Rookie quarterback Colt McCoy and defensive backs T.J. Ward and Joe Haden all appear to be longtime starters in Cleveland.

What about the Cincinnati Bengals? Rookies Jermaine Gresham, Carlos Dunlap and Jordan Shipley are dynamic talents, and they were among the Bengals' most productive players in the second half of the season.

Or could it be the Pittsburgh Steelers? Center Maurkice Pouncey made the Pro Bowl in his first year, and rookie receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown made big play after big play to help propel the Steelers to Super Bowl XLV. If you want to make a case for the Baltimore Ravens, as well, feel free.

So take your pick on the AFC North's best rookie class and share your thoughts below. You can also send comments to our division inbox and AFC North Twitter page, and we will run the best responses throughout the week.
