The AFC North blog will project the starting lineups for every team in the division this week as training camps kick into full gear.
WR A.J. Green: He's clearly the best receiver in the division and you could make the case for Green being the best receiver in the AFC.
WR Mohamed Sanu: The 2012 third-round draft pick was improving every week before a season-ending foot injury.
RG Kevin Zeitler: First-round pick from last season looks like a future Pro Bowl lineman.
RT Andre Smith: Skipping all of the offseason camps didn't endear him to the Bengals but he appears to be in excellent shape.
LDE Carlos Dunlap: Bengals hope Dunlap reaches his potential after signing him to a six-year, $40 million contract.
NT Domata Peko: Led defensive line in tackles for fourth time in five seasons.
RDT Geno Atkins: Topped all NFL interior linemen with 12.5 sacks last season and enters a contract year.
RDE Michael Johnson: Franchise player had a career-high 11.5 sacks last season but could be playing his final season in Cincinnati.
SLB James Harrison: His toughness and leadership will be invaluable to the Bengals.
MLB Rey Maualuga: Bengals showed their faith in him by re-signing Maualuga and keeping him at middle linebacker.
WLB Vontaze Burfict: Undrafted rookie was biggest surprise on the team last season, leading the Bengals in tackles.
LCB Terence Newman: Re-signed with the Bengals in the offseason after leading the team with 14 passes defensed.
SS Shawn Williams: Rookie third-round pick hasn't won the job but he's been impressive early in camp.
FS Reggie Nelson: Has recorded seven interceptions, four forced fumbles and one touchdown in his past two seasons.
RCB Leon Hall: One of the most underrated corners in the league looked healthy and confident by the end of last season.
