Offensive tackle has become a position of need in the AFC North.
The defending Super Bowl champion Ravens and the winless Pittsburgh Steelers both are in the process of acquiring offensive tackles.
The Ravens are trading draft picks to the Jacksonville Jaguars for offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, who would presumably replace Bryant McKinnie at left tackle.
Who's getting the better tackle, Ravens or Steelers?
As the Ravens complete a deal for the Jaguars' Eugene Monroe, the Steelers are also completing a trade for an offensive tackle -- Levi Brown of the Cardinals.

And the Steelers are in the process of finalizing a deal for Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle Levi Brown.
Both are former first-round draft picks. Both are players with upside regarded as not having fully realized their potential.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out for both rival franchises.
The Cardinals reportedly passed on Monroe when the Jaguars initiated a potential trade discussion last week.
