NFL Nation: University of Missouri
Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker
Here are the most interesting stories Monday in the AFC North:
- Take a look at potential cornerback prospects for the Baltimore Ravens, who have the No. 26 overall pick.
Morning take: The common thread is they are all slightly undersized. But the Ravens have never been afraid to take undersized players as long as they can perform.
- Could the Pittsburgh Steelers be looking for a cornerback as well?
Morning take: Potentially. The Steelers still have a chance to re-sign pending free agent Bryant McFadden but have a contingency plan (Deshea Townsend, William Gay, the draft) if it doesn't work out.
- While Pittsburgh and Baltimore are looking at corners, the Cincinnati Bengals are looking at offensive tackles.
Morning take: If 51 sacks last season and an elbow injury to Carson Palmer doesn't tell Cincinnati to get protection, nothing will.
- The Cleveland Browns hired linebackers coach Matt Eberflus from the University of Missouri.
Morning take: I'm not sure what to make of head coach Eric Mangini's constant hiring from the college ranks. There will be a lot of college coaches in Cleveland adjusting to dealing with pro players.
