2012 NFL Draft Grades: Cleveland Browns' Choices Confuse, But Steelers And Other AFC North Teams Do Well

Below the jump, check out SB Nation's evaluations of the AFC North's performance in the draft so far. Essentially, everyone fares pretty well so far except the Browns, who continue to confuse people with picks like Brandon Weeden and Mitchell Schwartz. The Browns get a D+.

\he Ravens, who got Courtney Upshaw, Kelechi Osemele and Bernard Pierce, get an A. The Bengals have also had a nice draft, getting three first-round or borderline first-round talents in Dre Kirkpatrick, Kevin Zeitler and Penn State's Devon Still to go with Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Thompson, also get an A. Behind The Steel Curtain's Michael Bean, meanwhile, gives the Steelers an A-/B+ for their selections of David DeCastro, Mike Adams and Sean Spence.

There isn't much to disagree with there, since it has pretty clearly been a good draft for everyone except the Browns. I'm sure the other three teams are very happy with what they've gotten so far.
