ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft went into the second-round, and based on his projections, the AFC North is poised to add enough talent in this year’s draft to remain one of them most competitive divisions in football:
6. Cleveland Browns
Kiper’s first-round pick: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
Kiper’s second-round pick: No pick.
17. Pittsburgh Steelers
Kiper’s first-round pick: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame
Kiper’s second-round pick: Cornelius Washington, OLB, Georgia
21. Cincinnati Bengals
Kiper’s first-round pick: Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia
Kiper’s second-round pick (from Oakland): Shamarko Thomas, S, Syracuse
Kiper’s second-round pick: Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State
32. Baltimore Ravens
Kiper’s first-round pick: John Cyprien, S, Florida International
Kiper’s second-round pick: Terron Armstead, OT, Arkansas-Pine Bluff
The Browns don’t have a second-rounder due to using it in the supplemental draft last year to select receiver Josh Gordan, and ESPN Cleveland believes Gordon is better than any draft-eligible wideout available this year.
In the latest round of the EA Madden 25 cover vote, the Ravens lost both Ray Rice and Ray Lewis, meaning the defending Super Bowl Champions won’t have one of their own on the cover of the next Madden video game.
