Morning take: Bengals' receivers
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Tuesday in the AFC North:
Morning take: With Chad Ochocinco's future in Cincinnati in doubt, the team should look at a receiver in the first three rounds. There are more pressing needs, such as defensive line and quarterback. But minus Ochocinco, the Bengals also lack proven talent at receiver.
- Will the Cincinnati Bengals select University of Pittsburgh receiver Jon Baldwin in the second round?
Morning take: Hopefully, Zbikowski will get stiffer competition than the tomato can he pounded last weekend. With no collective bargaining agreement, I'd really like to see "Zbi" and "Ocho" go at it for charity and without any fear of repercussions from their respective teams.
Morning take: Holmgren also said that includes quarterbacks, and particularly Auburn's Cam Newton. After singing the praises of Colt McCoy this entire offseason, this sudden interest in Newton appears very strange. I view it as a smokescreen.
- Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren says he's keeping his draft options open with the No. 6 overall pick.
Morning take: I agree with this mock draft that Texas cornerback Aaron Williams would be a solid pick. Cornerback is the team's biggest need and top corner Ike Taylor is a pending free agent. It's time the Steelers finally invest a top pick into the position.
