Morning take: How Steelers got Woodson
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:
Morning take: The Steelers had no business landing Woodson at No. 10 after a great career at Purdue. But poor picks in front of Pittsburgh, including the Cleveland Browns' selection of linebacker Mike Junkin, led to the Steelers' fortunate circumstances.
- Bob Labriola of PittsburghSteelers.com breaks down how the Steelers were able to draft Hall of Famer Rod Woodson in 1987.
Morning take: This was a role 2010 second-round pick Sergio Kindle was expected to fill. But with his future uncertain following a fractured skull, Baltimore is looking for players in this draft who can get to the quarterback, possibly as high as the first round.
- Ryan Mink of BaltimoreRavens.com checks in with Ravens director of college scouting Joe Hortiz on the draft's top pass-rushers.
Morning take: First and foremost, shout out to Mosley from the AFC North blog. Like most mock drafts, Mosley has the Bengals taking Georgia's A.J. Green at No. 4. But his mock draft is pretty interesting with the way the top of the board turns out.
- Blog network alum and new FoxSports Southwest columnist Matt Mosley provides his mock draft for the top 10, including the Cincinnati Bengals.
Morning take: Injuries forced Moore out of four games last year, but he could help the Browns stretch the field this upcoming season. Moore averaged 20.1 yards per catch in 2010 in limited playing time.
