ESPN North blogger Jamison Hensley continues top-25 players in the AFC North, naming Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green No. 10. He's the fourth player listed in Hensley's ranking -- Carlos Dunlap (No. 14), Andrew Whitworth (No. 18), Thomas Howard (No. 25) -- and we suspect one more remains in defensive tackle Geno Atkins.

As for Green Hensley hits all of the main points.

Green is ready to become the best receiver in the division and one of the top five in the NFL based on a great rookie campaign. The fourth overall pick of the 2011 draft led all NFL rookies with 65 catches for 1,057 yards and seven touchdowns. His 11 catches of 35 yards or more were the most in the league and the most by an NFL rookie since Minnesota’s Randy Moss had 14 in 1998. As a result, Green became the first rookie wide receiver to make the Pro Bowl since Anquan Boldin in 2003.

Interestingly enough Green is only the second receiver to make the list, following Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown at No. 22.
