Jaff Bathurst returns for a post-draft recap of the AFC North. The Ravens got players at the positions they needed, the Bengals got guys who aren't on the prison track, which they needed, the Browns got what everyone thought they needed, and the Steelers got linebackers, which they always think they need.

Michael David Smith takes a look at the AFC West's draft. We all know the Raiders took JaMarcus Russell first overall, but how about Oakland's wild fourth round? Mike Shanahan clearly loves the Florida defensive line, Kansas City's secondary is just as old as it ever was, and the Chargers took a receiver from LSU when the fans would have preferred a receiver from USC.
