AFC North teams pounce on a pair of wideouts

AP

With the team that used to be the Browns and the team that currently is the Browns picking consecutively in round two, the franchises targeted the same position.

The old Browns — the Ravens — took former Maryland speedster Torrey Smith with pick No. 58.  And the new Browns — the Browns — took former North Carolina pass-catcher Greg Little with the 59th selection.

Given that the Bengals took Georgia wideout A.J. Green with the fourth overall pick in the draft, the AFC North has added a trio of exciting young players.

  1. Only in the AFC North…
    Three young receivers added…
    With a combined Wonderlic Score less than 10!

    GO AFC NORTH!

  2. The old Baltimore Colts have also done well with the OL they drafted. Tje new Baltimoee team has upgraded two positions and are having a great draft. The BROWNS are picking good players, vut they are the Browns. They’ll F It up.

  3. No worries…Cleveland has no one to get the ball to Greg Little; Carson Palmer reminds me of Kyle Boller.

    Torrey Smith will not get many balls his way if he’s not the check-down receiver.

  4. I’m not a fan of the browns, but if I was then I’d be really excited for Greg Little, a beast in the red zone.

  5. Joe Flacco is an overacheiving Derrek Anderson. He hit a wall of development that was evident in the Steelers playoff game. He is servicable, but that is it.

  6. Torrey Smith reminds me of Troy WIlliamson or Travis Taylor. I can’t see him being much more then a down field decoy.

    Greg Little reminds me of a poor mans Andre Johnson. Cleveland just gave McCoy a much needed target, Little is going to be special.

  7. AJ Green is going to eat up the AFC Norths secondaries., since the best cb’s in the north are on the Bengals.

  8. A trio of exciting young receivers?
    Green is in Cincy. Enough said
    Smith is in Baltimore. Offense? In Baltimore? Other than Jamal Lewis it doesn’t exist.
    Smith in Cleveland. He’ll have wait for time behind the pair ‘developing’ of 2nd round WRs they took 2 yrs ago.

    The Browns never won a Super Bowl, the connection ended in 2001.

    Anyway, Torrey Smith!

    So now, what does your pathetic football scene have? Let me describe it to you brawltimore; you have a team that your city could not hold. You had a tradition and culture that you tried in no way to protect. You were given a stadium and team colors to which you had no connection. Edgar Allen Poe, right. You are a middling town caught up in a megalopolis that ignores you. You have sports team(s) that exist only because there are people coalesced around an ineffectua government focused on drug trafficking and its control. One Superbowl reached on the back of a Vikings offensive coordinator who now sits in a commentators booth. I’m happy you won a Superbowl with a partial owner whose legacy is more sad than Lassie. Best of luck to you and your fandom.

  10. Browns fan that won’t act like I had my first ever beer, contrary to the ratbird fans whose wifes look like Roseanne Barr.

    Ravens = B
    Had an A going into Rd 3. Jah Reid was a reach, Jimmy Smith was a perfect pick.

    Bengals = B
    First must see if Dalton is the real deal or just another QB reach. Love the Moch pick

    Browns = A
    3 players that were all Rd 1 graded. Taylor is a beast, but has to stay under the 340 mark. Sheard has best upfield moves in the draft at DE & doesn’t leave his feet unless necessary. Bowers & Quinn miss tackles because the constantly leave their feet attempting the punishing hit. Greg Little is a poor mans Julio Jones, at this very moment. He WILL be the best WR in this draft. Write that down.

    Steelers = C-
    Like the Heyward pick. Gilbert is too thin for the right side. Awful pick. Curtis Brown plays too soft. Special teamer at best.

  11. From a strategic point the Ravens have helped themselves in this draft. The first two picks could become outstanding players. And drafting a home town kid like Torre Smith is icing on the cake.

  12. Always glad to see more talent in the AFC North. Bring it, the Steelers aren’t afraid of anyone.

    ==========================
    agree..onlyway they are going back to the show is holding the tournament teams down to 10 points each, then having Ed Reed return an interception for the game winner.

  14. Steveincinci doesn’t realize AJ Smith can’t throw the ball to himself.

    Also seems unaware that Jonathan Joseph is a free agent and is as good as gone.

    Fans of teams with no playoff wins in 20 years should just sit quietly when the adults are talking.

    Hahaha really dude? 330 is too thin for the right side? Flozell Adams: 330 lbs. Willie colon: 315 lbs. Jason smith: 320 lbs Ryan diem: 330 lbs. Damien woody: 330 lbs. Shall I keep going?

    You can keep going if you want to, but I’m pretty sure everyone already fell asleep because no one gives a ****. Blather away…
