Morning take: Ike Taylor's future

Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:

Morning take: Cornerbacks are making a ton of money on the open market, making it questionable if Taylor will return to the Steelers. Pittsburgh needs to take a cornerback high in this draft for insurance. The position is pretty thin with or without Taylor.

  • Is North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn the best fit for the Cleveland Browns?

Morning take: As a pass-rushing defensive end, he fills Cleveland's biggest need. Sitting out an entire year raises a few questions, but the Browns do not appear too concerned.

  • This weekend Baltimore Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski improved to 4-0 with a first-round knockout of Blake Warner (1-3).

Morning take: Zbikowski looks ready for a step up in competition. The longer this lockout goes, the more work he can get in, try to pile up wins, and move up the cruiserweight rankings.

Morning take: There are no sure things in this year's quarterback class. That's why it's better for the Bengals to take a quarterback later in the draft and fill another need with the No. 4 overall pick.
