Default Morning take: No compensation for Ravens

Morning take: No compensation for Ravens

Here are the most interesting stories Saturday in the AFC North:

The NFL will not grant the Baltimore Ravens compensation for the trade snafu made by the Chicago Bears in the first round.

Morning take: This is not a surprise. The Ravens were given the short end and missed their pick. But in the eyes of the league, no trade was made official so Chicago doesn't have to pay up.
Poor little Ratbirds have their panties all bunched up. To bad. It couldn't happen to a better team. - mesa

The Cincinnati Bengals hope third-round linebacker Dontay Moch helps their pass rush.

Morning take: Moch had 30 career sacks at Nevada, and the Bengals hope he can be equally productive in Cincinnati. The Bengals plan to move Rey Maualuga inside and need someone else to step up at outside linebacker.

The Pittsburgh Steelers hit their top three needs in the first three rounds.

Morning take: Cornerback was probably their biggest need, but they didn't get one until the third round in Curtis Brown of Texas. This likely adds pressure to re-sign veteran Ike Taylor in free agency.

The Cleveland Browns drafted some attitude with linemen Phil Taylor and Jabaal Sheard.

Morning take: The division is not for the weak at heart. If the Browns are going to eventually compete with Baltimore and Pittsburgh, they need to start putting together a stout defense as well.
