Four Downs: AFC North

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.

Four Downs: NFC South

It was a great draft for the NFC South. Carolina and Atlanta loaded up on talent, Tampa Bay did some heavy rebuilding on the defensive side of the ball, and the Saints went small-school shopping again, after an SEC pitstop in Tennessee.

Four Downs: AFC West

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.

Four Downs: AFC North

Jeff Bathurst is back to recap the AFC North. The division has played a little bit of free agency musical chairs, and the Browns won, getting Eric Steinbach from the Bengals and ... uh, Jamal Lewis from the Ravens. But at least they won't be fighting the rest of the division for the privilege of drafting from the same group of linebackers. See what all this healthy competition is about in the latest Four Downs.

Four Downs: NFC East

Brandon Jacobs and Kevin Curtis were great in specialized roles, but can they succeed with more playing time? Fred Smoot sucked with more playing time, but can he succeed in a specialized role? Plus: Does the attention-hogging Terrell Owens read his playbook, and is he offended that we did not mention him until the third sentence of this intro to the latest Four Downs?
