Can Bitonio hold up?

Good RT, Stud OG, IMO.

 

I actually saw it just the opposite, but you could be correct.

 

Bitonio put up very very quick numbers in all phases of the combine.  He is definietly quick enough to play LT in my opinion.

 

I know that most guards are guards because of a lack of quickness and agility and RT's to some extent, and they seem to be the heavier lineman in most cases.

 

Now, he would be dynamite in a zone blocking scheme, just depends on what teams run it I suppose

Mayock now has him as his number 5 OT in the upcoming draft.  Late second?

If enough teams think he is the fifth best ot in deep draft he will be gone top of second

Joel Bitonio worked out as tackle, guard, center

Posted: March 15th, 2014 | Gil Brandt | Tags: Joel Bitonio, Nevada, pro day

The offensive line coaches from the Bengals, Rams, Colts and Chargers were at the pro day for the University of Nevada at Reno on Wednesday to watch Joel Bitonio. The Bengals and Rams coaches worked Bitonio mostly at center on his pro day; the Colts and Chargers coaches worked him out at left tackle and at guard the following day.

Bitonio (6-4 1/4, 305 pounds) stood on all of his numbers at the combine and had a very good workout. He’ll probably be a second-round pick, some place between the 40th and 50th pick.

Guard, LT and Center.  Never actually thought of him at center, but he is so quick, he could handle with ease.

 

Too bad, it looks like even he won't fall to bottom of second.

Looks like he is shaping up to be our 1st round pick

He may be a true starting flex-G/T option.  That could warrant good consideration for us at 28 given Chandler's flexibility on the line as well.

I find Billy Turner and Mewhort to be the strong RTs that could transition well to LT.  

 

I take back the Mewhort part...but still feel the same about Turner but it's a risk him coming from a small school with technique adjustments needed. Started high on Turner, still am but Bitonio looks solid as a rock and more ready at the next level.

If we need a LT as bad as what people believes, go DAVID YANKEY at 28.

 

Why draft a guard when you can draft a true Tackle like:

 

Cyrus Kouandjio

Morgan Moses

Ju'Wuan James

Antonio Richardson

etc....
