First recap of AFC North Top 25

7/17/2012

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.
