Morning take: Maualuga consistent

Here are the most interesting stories Friday in the AFC North: Morning take: I'm no scout, but it was pretty easy for me to see at USC that Maualuga was a player. I’m still surprised every AFC North team passed on him at least once. The Browns passed twice.
Morning take: It’s early, but it looks like Baltimore hit on its first three picks. Michael Oher, Paul Kruger and Lardarius Webb are all contributing to the team's playoff run. Morning take: Last time I remember Gradkowski against Pittsburgh, he was with the Cleveland Browns in 2008 and things didn’t go very well.
Morning take: To do it in Cleveland would be a nice honor for "L.T." Against the Browns’ defense, he has a good chance to do it.
