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.

They seem pretty high on him, would be nice if we could get him in the second, voth said they're not high on any tackles at 28

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....

Yankey can play LT. Plus, he's 6'5 with a 34 in. arm length.

He can be a stop measure but most teams & scouts view him as a top rated guard. I rather draft a player that played tackle in college and has the physical measurable to play it.

BOTTOM LINE

 Big, physical, smart, serviceable offensive guard who will not score many style points, but generally gets the job done. Has starter-caliber ability and fits best in a power scheme that takes advantage of his size and pulling ability.

I know but the fact he "lost" his job and moved inside shows that he is not a true LT. Especially if you started 2 season and gained experience and conditioning.

if he made it to our second round pick I'd be very very happy

 

would not be mad at all if it went

 

1-Moses

2-Bitonio

3-WR

4-Hurst

 

 

Moses, Amini, Kalil, Bitonio, Hurst

 

cam could fap behind that line
