Three of the four AFC North teams have made picks in the 2014 NFL draft, with the Baltimore Ravens selecting Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley at No. 17. According to ESPN, Mosley is graded as the top inside linebacker heading into the draft, strong in run coverage and a three-down linebacker that can cover.
Like the Steelers selecting Shazier, the Bengals will find it tougher to run the ball in the division even though offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is determined to pound the football.
All three selections in the AFC North have been on defense, with the Cleveland Browns grabbing Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert earlier.
