Morning take: Steelers looking at LB?
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
Morning take: I don't see Pittsburgh taking a linebacker on the first day, but with James Farrior aging you can't rule it out. By the way, Weatherspoon is a former college teammate of Pittsburgh's 2009 first-round pick, Evander "Ziggy" Hood.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers met with Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon at the NFL combine.
Morning take: The Ravens have bigger needs as long as Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed returns. But in listening to Rolle's news conference Sunday, I didn't want it to end. I felt I was getting smarter by the minute.
- Could safety and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle fit with the Baltimore Ravens?
Morning take: I've heard nothing but great things about Haden. He may be one of the safer picks in the top 10.
- University of Florida cornerback Joe Haden is a strong target for the Cleveland Browns at No. 7.
Morning take: It took two years for Zimmer to build the defense into one of the league's best. Now it's all about improving the details, such as rushing the quarterback and covering slot receivers and tight ends better.
