Take Cyrus, we just need him to give us a good 5 years. That's 5 drafts where we'll get a chance to replace him before his knee collapse.

I like all of them. Bitonio is versatile. Can play inside and could try to play Tackle. Unfortunately his size is not what you want in a left tackle, or right tackle for that matter. He's till a formidable linemen.

 

Cyrus is just a mountain of a man, long arms, power. According to doctors his knee is fine but it won't be after several years. It will wear down so his life shelf is going to be very minimal. You're looking at 5-6 years before he's starting to see some serious damage.

 

Moses, is rough, but he's a specimen. He's probably the project of the three. Long arms as well, but lacks the feet.

 

 

I'd say to forgo all of them and take Ja'wuan James instead. The guy has everything, he's played Right Tackle most of his career but he has Left Tackle written all over him.

Bitonio is the most tenacious, Cyrus has the most natural talent, Moses has the lowest bust probability. I love Moses in the 2nd but not at 28. But out of the three I would probably be most excited about Cyrus at 28 if he is ok healthwise. He is the youngest and has raw power and quick feet. But he is a project.

In the first?  Only Cyrus is a first round talent in my opinion, and only if the knee is completely cleared.  Moses in the 2nd would be fine.  Bitonio in the 3rd would be fine, but I could live with him in the 2nd.  Definitely not the 1st.

I think the question I have about Cyrus is this.   The doctor cleared him that his knee was fine.   Is the knee fine and that the problem has gone away or was it injured and now it is better.     IF it is the latter,  I would pass on Cyrus.

 

From what I know Moses seems to be the one I would take.  Some said slow feet but the only issue I have hear about him is he bends at the waist and gets off balance.   That is coachable.   He is a good pass blocker and that is something I would want as my LT.

 

Honestly I haven't heard much about Bitonio other than he has a mean streak.

Have the Panthers even worked out Cyrus? I read where Rivera personally visited Bitonio but I personally do not see him as a 1st round pick. 

 

Moses is just OK. I am leaning towards James in the 2nd as being a value pick. Then again we cannot count on James being there so who knows. 

 

With our glaring hole at OL and lack of cap money I do not see how we can ignore the position .

Have a look for yourself at these full game cut ups. I personally like Cyrus the best. Try and watch at least 3 games worth of each player to get a sold opinion....(you can see every snap they played in a game in matter of minutes in these videos)

The only one I have a strong opinion on is Cyrus -- and it's not a positive one. This is an arthritic knee; do any of you have relatives with arthritis? Did it ever just magically go away or did it get worse with time? My guess is the latter. This knee is not going to get any healthier. He may get cleared for a season, but that's all the doctors can do. I just don't like how the future's looking from a medical standpoint.
