First recap of AFC North Top 25

July, 18, 2012
Before we crack into the top 10 of the AFC North's impact players in 2012 (remember no rookies are included), here's a quick recap of the players who went from No. 11 to No. 25:

No. 11: Ray Lewis, LB, Ravens
No. 12: Mike Wallace, WR, Steelers
No. 13: Marshal Yanda, G, Ravens
No. 14: Carlos Dunlap, DE, Bengals
No. 15: Terrell Suggs, LB, Ravens
No. 16: Joe Flacco, QB, Ravens
No. 17: Joe Haden, CB, Browns
No. 18: Andrew Whitworth, OT, Bengals
No. 19: Lardarius Webb, CB, Ravens
No. 20: Maurkice Pouncey, C, Steelers
No. 21: Vonta Leach, FB, Ravens
No. 22: Antonio Brown, WR, Steelers
No. 23: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Bengals
No. 24: T.J. Ward, S, Browns
No. 25: Thomas Howard, LB, Bengals

So, of the 15 players selected, there have been six Ravens, four Bengals, three Steelers and two Browns. Another interesting trend is there have been eight players from offense chosen so far from a defense-dominated division. Let's see how these numbers change as the countdown continues.
