The AFC North is a harsh place. From its weather to its punishing defenses, the AFC North is a tough division to beat especially for if you are a team without a top-tier offense. The defenses will smother weaker teams, and they will pound the ball down your throat until your defense just lays down.
Hmmm...that sounds familiar, sounds a lot like the way teams describe the punishing Alabama Crimson Tide. Trent Richardson is the sledgehammer on offense, while defenses struggle to get passes off versus Hightower and Upshaw.
When they do get it off receivers beware of the thumping safety Mark Barron. With that being said, lets play matchmaker with the NFL draft and see which Crimson Tide player would look good in an AFC North uniform.
