AFC North Team Needs

1. Right Tackle
It is no secret that the Ravens offensive decline can be traced back to their inability to restock after having Osemele and Wagner left in free agency. With Ronnie Stanley entrenched at left tackle the Ravens need to find an upgrade over Austin Howard so Alex Lewis can move back to guard.

 2. Wide Receiver
Joe Flacco’s struggles have been a big issue, but it is not like he has many weapons to throw to. Breshad Perriman has been a bust of a first round pick while Jeremy Maclin and Mike Wallace’s careers may be over.

 3. Running Back
Early season pickup Alex Collins has provided a nice little spark to thie offense but he is a free agent and must be resigned. Even with Collins resigning the Ravens would be wise to add another running back due to Danny Woodhead’s injury history and the fact that Kenneth Dixon hasn’t been the most trustworthy.

 

1. Offensive Tackle
Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher were the 1st and 2nd round picks for the Bengals back in 2015 but both have failed to live up to their hype. There is still time to develop, but taking another tackle early wouldn’t be a bad idea.

2. Center
This position has been a hot topic for national analyst and fans alike as Russell Bodine has been a favorite of the coaching staff but hasn’t had the production to warrant the position. He’s a free agent and likely could be coming back, but finding an upgrade would really help this offense out.

3. Quarterback
Like him or not, Andy Dalton is the quarterback for the Bengals but there is a big question mark behind him. Backup AJ McCarron is all but gone as a free agent and with Dalton’s injury history finding a capable backup is a must.

 

1. Wide Receiver
Despite drafting six receivers in 2016 only Corey Coleman looks to have potential. Josh Gordon is back and could be a spark but he’s a free agent also. Could really use a big contested catch type WR.

2. Running Back
Isaiah Crowell was hyped to have a strong year running behind a vastly improved offensive line but he struggled and is an impending free agent. Cleveland must find their running game to take pressure off the quarterback and that should lead them to being aggressive at finding a new feature back.

3. Quarterback
It wouldn’t be a Browns offseason if we didn’t have to address the quarterback position. Does Cleveland continue to roll with last year’s 2nd round pick DeShone Kizer or draft a quarterback early with their top 2 pick? Do the Browns bring in a veteran to back up or compete with Kizer?

 

1. Backup Quarterback
Rumors of Roethlisberger retiring have been around for a couple of years and with his play slipping a bit the Steelers have to plan for the future. Landry Jones has filled in the past, but he isn’t the future.

 2. Inside Linebacker
Ryan Shazier has not disappointed since being selected in the first round giving the Steelers an athletic run and chase tackler. Pittsburgh promoted Vince Williams to replace Lawerence Timmons but continuing to add help to this group.

 3. Outside Linebacker
Outside linebacker is one of their strengths and has young talent in Alvin Dupree and TJ Watt who’ve they’ve spend first round picks on. With James Harrison retiring soon the Steelers could look to add another young prospect with potential to develop behind Dupree and Watt.
