I wish my favorite team would adopt an AFCN phiosophy. There is not player on that list I would not welcome to Detroit with the possible exception of Mike Adams. Given his recent mea culpa regarding lying at the combine about drug use and his offer to postpone his signing bonus, he would probably get welcomed as well.

I don't mind your OL picks. Frankly, I think Ben is less dangerous in the pocket than outside of it. So by all means, help keep him in the pocket. :)

Had to get that out. feel better.

I'm torn here. I love what Mike Adams did. He finally showed some accountability. Clearly, it was the smart play on his part, and the main question now is whether or not it was genuine. For the potential, I'll absolutely give him the benefit of the doubt. Mainly because I have to. But if he wasn't taken by Pittsburgh, absolutely I'd be skeptical.

Final Count for Linemen Drafted by AFC North Teams:

Baltimore, 2: Gino Gradkowski (OG), Kelechi Osemele (OG)
Cincinnati, 3: Kevin Zeitler (OG), Devon Still (DT), Brandon Thompson (DT)
Cleveland, 4: Mitchell Schwartz (OT), John Hughes (DT), Ryan Miller (OG), Billy Winn (DT)
Pittsburgh, 4: David Decastro (OG), Mike Adams (OT), Alameda Ta'amu (DT), Kelvin Beachum (OG)

That's thirteen players to the AFC North, weighing in at a combined weight of approximately two tons. This doesn't even count the tight ends/fullbacks drafted by Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. The Browns and Bengals both drafted bruiser runningbacks (albeit in very different places in the draft) and the Steelers, Ravens, and Browns took a combined 5 linebackers. That's ten players for defensive front-sevens, and eleven offensive players who will be putting hand-to-turf.

Hide the women and children.

This is reason #217 why the Draft is my favorite time of year.

Trumpet had to remind us! lol Makes me yearn for Opening Day with Urban's Era.

Ok, now AFC North. I Love this; I mean LOVE THIS! AFC North goes all out to make their division even more Tough. I see that they did their share of offensive picks but the Defense and OLine was paid attention to. Great stuff.

I absolutely love the AFC North.

Also, I would like to revise Trumpet, slightly.

I love the Cleveland Browns, I absolutely hate the AFC North.
