2012 NFL Draft: Breaking Down AFC North Team Needs and Top Prospects

BR StudiosFeatured Columnist IVJune 24, 2016

The AFC North was perhaps the most talented division in all of football, and the four teams share six of the first 32 draft picks in the 2012 NFL draft. How will those picks be used and on which positions?

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals made the playoffs, but lasted just four quarters. What moves will they make to see the divisional round? How can the Cleveland Browns use their two picks to restore glory? And what do the Baltimore Ravens add to an already loaded roster?

Bleacher Report’s lead NFL draft scout, Matt Miller, takes a look at each team, giving you the low-down on their biggest offseason needs and which players in the 2012 draft class are the best fits.
