NFL Draft Grades: AFC North Picks Include Interesting Moves By Browns (VIDEO)

The Cleveland Browns made some of the most interesting moves in the entire first round of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday -- and certainly the most interesting in the AFC North. They traded up in order to be able to select running back Trent Richardson and picked up a new -- and potential replacement -- quarterback in Brandon Weeden.

The Cincinnati Bengals also made two moves, albeit less risky ones, by shoring up at the cornerback and offensive guard positions. The Pittsburgh Steelers, meanwhile, grabbed one of the best guards in the entire draft with their selection of David DeCastro of the Stanford Cardinal. Only the Baltimore Ravens missed out on the fun, as they traded their first-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings.

Check out the entire analysis and grades for each team in the AFC North in the video below.
