Scouts Inc. is breaking down each division in a roundtable discussion, with each scout offering his pick for the best offense and defense as well as the most important offseason move in the division. Here's the scouts' look at the AFC North.

Which team has the best offense in the AFC North?

Jeremy Green: The Cleveland Browns have the best offense in the AFC North, even though the Pittsburgh Steelers will be more explosive than last season after drafting RB Rashard Mendenhall and WR Limas Sweed. But the Browns have a much better offensive line and Pittsburgh has issues because LT Marvel Smith is showing wear and All-Pro LG Alan Faneca is now in New York. The Steelers' pass protection looks to be an issue again. Pittsburgh will have the more consistent ground attack, but the Browns have better balance with their ability to stretch the field with QB Derek Anderson and WR Braylon Edwards. Plus, Cleveland can ride the legs of RB Jamal Lewis.
