Poll: Surprise AFC North rookies


We have another interesting poll question for our community. This week we ask which AFC North rookie will surprise in 2011? We have several good candidates from April's NFL draft.

Will it be Cleveland Browns receiver Greg Little? The Browns drafted Little in the second round despite missing a full year of football at the University of North Carolina. Cleveland has a huge need at receiver and Little will compete with the struggling Brian Robiskie for a starting job in training camp.

What about Baltimore Ravens third-round pick Jah Reid? Baltimore's offensive line was inconsistent last year and the team hopes Reid can fill a spot at right tackle. An injury to Jared Gaither kept him out all last season and he's unlikely to return. Can Reid step in and surprise?

Also, can Pittsburgh Steelers rookie cornerback Curtis Brown step up? With veteran Ike Taylor about to test free agency, Pittsburgh needs its young cornerbacks. Brown, a third-round pick, will compete with other inexperienced corners such as Crezdon Butler and Keenan Lewis for a role on the defense.

Finally, is Cincinnati Bengals' pass-rush specialist Dontay Moch the biggest candidate to surprise? Moch registered 30 career sacks at Nevada, which is an area the Bengals struggled the past few years. Can Moch make an impact getting the quarterback in the same way 2010 draft pick Carlos Dunlap did last season?
