The AFC North is a division that has been known for their defenses over the years, but they do have some good offensive weapons amongst them. Last week we ranked the top four starting quarterbacks in the division; this time around, it is time to breakdown the wide receivers in the AFC North. Rankings are based on the three main wide receivers on each team, and their potential for the up-coming season.1. Pittsburgh Steelers: Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. Everyone across the league knows that Wallace is a game changer and will continue to build on an already solid resume in 2012 (even with his contract status at this writing). Last season, he finished first in the division with 72 catches and 1,193 yards receiving. Sure, his last seven games were not his best, averaging only 46.4 yards per game and recording only two touchdowns down the stretch. Some of that drop-off can be put on the injuries to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but Wallace must improve. While he is the Steelers main offensive weapon in the passing game and teams are really starting to game plan against him now, he must show that he is not only a one trick pony in 2012.

Look around the Tennessee roster, and the Titans' youth movement is most noticeable at linebacker.

Good news for the rest of the AFC South; according to the local newspaper in Tennessee, Matt Hasselbeck is expected to QB1 when the Titans break camp this fall.
Before I get into the specifics, the reason I say it is good news for the rest of the AFC South is because I believe they have enough talent on the roster to challenge Houston for the division in 2012. But I also believe...
With Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker battling for the Tennessee Titans starting quarterback job, all preseason reports have indicated that the competition has been very close so far. At least until now.

Griffin had been designated as the Titans' franchise player, at a price tag of $6.2 million on a one-year tender.
Michael Griffin was the 19th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, but he didn’t always play like it. For example, in 2008 and 2011, he graded out above average on ProFootballFocus, ranking 13th among all safeties last year. However, in 2009 he was absolutely awful, getting torched in coverage, allowing 34 completions on 49 attempts (69.4%) for 741 yards (15.1 YPA!!!), 5 touchdowns...
