AFC North: Top 10 Impact Players

1 of 11

The AFC North is the best division in the NFL, so its only right that the division boost some great talented players. This division features the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns; three of four teams who are perennial playoff contenders.

Last year, this division led every other division with 38 combine wins between the four teams. The Bengals, Steelers and Ravens all made it to the playoffs and for most of the season it look like the Browns were going to make it as well (if it was possible).

Although the Cleveland Browns (also known as the leagues most dysfunctional team) are in the division they hold some good players as well. We all know these players thanks to the 24-3 blow out we suffered at the hands of the Browns last season. The Ravens and Steelers are always a tough battle as well.

Here are the Top 10 players in the AFC North. This list does not feature any offensive lineman. I am not a fan of ranking offensive lineman since they do not directly score nor stop players from scoring; therefore, honorable mentions go to Joe Thomas, Alex Mack, Andrew Whitworth, Kevin Zeitler and Maurkice Pouncey. This list also does not feature any rookies from last season; therefore, honorable mentions go to Ryan Shazier and C.J. Mosley. But without further ado…..
