Poll: AFC North's top preseason player?
By James Walker
The preseason is nearly complete. This final week is mostly about fine tuning and getting to the regular season healthy.
So it's not too soon for our latest SportsNation poll. We want to know which AFC North player impressed you the most this preseason.
Is Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown the top player in the division? Brown took advantage of a foot injury to teammate Emmanuel Sanders and caught nine receptions for 230 yards and three touchdowns.
What about Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy? The second-year player is moving Cleveland's offense and taking care of the football. McCoy has thrown for 320 yards, four touchdowns and one interception.
Fellow quarterback Tyrod Taylor has been equally as impressive for the Baltimore Ravens. The rookie sixth-round draft pick is lighting up backups around the league. Taylor has thrown for 392 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
Finally, Rey Maualuga of the Cincinnati Bengals has been a consistent force on defense. Maualuga is returning to his college position of middle linebacker this season and has 10 tackles in limited playing time.
