With all four training camps officially underway in the AFC North, there is no better time to look into the crystal ball.

But these predictions are a little different because they don't state the obvious. Many are going out on a limb, which could draw responses such as, "Are you crazy?"

With that in mind, here are four fearless predictions from training camp representing each AFC North team:

1. Cleveland Browns: Rookie LB Alex Hall will make the 53-man roster.

2. Cincinnati Bengals: Marcus Maxwell will win the No. 3 receiver job.

3. Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco will start in week one.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers: LeCharles Bentley eventually will sign with Pittsburgh.
