The NFL draft is a special time for fans to get excited for all 32 teams.
For the good teams, it's a chance to plug a few holes. For bad teams, it's the best opportunity to turn around the franchise.
But with so much guessing and speculation that goes on leading up to the draft, the AFC North blog decided to look back and see what interesting comments were made by our community one year ago.
"I will be a sad panda if the Bengals draft a TE in the first round."
"I'm going to cry if the Bengals draft a TE in the first round."
"Maurkice Pouncey must be considered for Cincy at 21."
"Cincy is going to be really good for a number of seasons. Young team and they did not lose anyone that they didn't want to lose this offseason. With another solid draft this team will only get stronger and more dangerous."
"I have a feeling we'll be taking Earl Thomas at No. 7. Then, trade back into the late-first round for Colt McCoy."
"Jimmy Clausen to Browns."
"To be honest, I wouldn't be upset with the Browns trading down to get Taylor Mays in the end of the first [round]."
"Browns win the division."
"I keep seeing Maurkice Pouncey as the projected pick for the Steelers. I'm not in favor of it." (Editor's note: Only one person in our community could have said this one.)
"You dealt Santonio Holmes for a fifth-round pick, you better draft some big-time players."
"Hey Steelers fans, since the news about Big Ben keeps getting worse, how would you feel about trading him to the Rams for their No. 1 pick, then signing Jason Campbell?"
"I love how far the 'mighty' Steelers have fallen."
"The Ravens are not getting Terrence Cody unless they trade up. The Dolphins have their eyes set on Cody before the Ravens make the pick."
"Dez Bryant on the Ravens would have been very, very interesting."
"Ravens are a lock for the Super Bowl from the sound of it."
Remember last year?
