While the jury's still out on whether the entire Baltimore Ravens draft class will make an on-field impact, it's clear if anyone will it's Courtney Upshaw
Today's AFC North required reading remains centered on the draft. From grades, to positional battles, from the Browns' trade up for Trent Richardson, to a look at a high-profile Steelers' free-agent signing, it's all here.
Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun gives the Ravens an incomplete grade for their draft, citing that they only picked up one true starter, linebacker Courtney Upshaw.

In a similar vein, the Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy takes an early look at how the Bengals' roster and depth chart are shaping up.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Bill Livingston wrote about quarterback Colt McCoy on Monday, saying that while McCoy certainly isn't perfect, the rest of the Browns' struggles haven't given him much help.
Sigmund Bloom of Bleacher Report examines whether the Minnesota Vikings were bluffing when they said other teams were interested in their third overall draft pick (and Trent Richardson), forcing the Browns to move up one spot to nab him.
Newly-drafted Steelers running back Chris Rainey and center Maurkice Pouncey are long-time friends, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette takes a closer look at the brotherly relationship between the two.
