Morning take: Andy Dalton, Ken Anderson

By James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Sunday in the AFC North: Morning take: Dalton is the first quarterback to wear Anderson's number since he retired in 1986. If Dalton is nearly as good as Anderson, Bengals fans should be happy.
Morning take: The Browns spent a fourth-round pick on a fullback for a reason. Cleveland likes what Marecic potentially brings to the West Coast offense, where Vickers is not an ideal fit.
Morning take: Baltimore addressed most of its needs but couldn't fill everything. Pro Bowl linebacker/defensive end Terrell Suggs still needs help getting to the quarterback, where the Ravens might look in free agency.
Morning take: Pittsburgh plugged its three biggest needs -- defensive line, offensive line, cornerback -- in the first three rounds. First-rounder Cameron Heyward, in particular, could be a very good pick for the Steelers.
