Morning take: After getting their top pick, Joe Flacco, in late Wednesday night, it's time to go to work. The biggest issue for the Ravens this weekend will be second rounder Ray Rice, considering the current confusion over the fourth year of contracts involving second-round picks and the potential for labor unrest.
Morning take: The Browns were very lucky with injuries last year, which helped propel the team to a 10-6 season. With a growing list of ailments to Jurevicius, cornerback Daven Holly (knee) and guard Ryan Tucker (hip), it doesn't appear Cleveland will have the same level of luck in 2008.
Morning take: After that there was a significant gap in the AFC North with the Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 21) and Cincinnati Bengals (No. 26). I wonder if this could play a factor in close division games this season?
