Morning take: Steelers mock draft

Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC North:

Morning take: Offensive tackle is a solid area to address. But guard and cornerback are huge need areas, as well, and Pittsburgh should definitely consider those spots early in this year's draft.

Morning take: That's always a delicate balance for any team. The Browns have really glaring holes this year -- such as the defensive line -- and they have to hope the draft falls in their favor to provide the right mix of need and talent.

  • Here is a look at quarterback Carson Palmer's Cincinnati-area home, which is on the market for $2.1 million.

Morning take: Palmer is leaving a very nice home, but it also shows that he's serious about not returning to Cincinnati. The Bengals are seeking other options via the draft, which we will get to next (hint, hint).

  • Which rookie outside linebacker would be the best fit for the Baltimore Ravens?

Morning take: Of the list provided, I like Purdue's Ryan Kerrigan. He's relentless to the quarterback and his motor could be a good complement to Pro Bowl linebacker/defensive end Terrell Suggs.
