Over the next few weeks I will be highlighting players I would like to see in a Carolina Panthers uniform.
Joel Bitonio is one of those guys.
Joel Bitonio 6-4 302 Pounds 5th year senior out of Nevada.
Bitonio showed both the intelligence and tenacity that propel players into a solid NFL career.
He performed better than originally expected at the combine, shooting him up to possibly the second but more likely third round.
Why the Panthers need him:
- Bitonio can play any position on the line - Finishes blocks with conviction. Known to have a mean streak. - Does not give up on plays or take plays off. - One of the fastest offensive line players in the draft. Would like to see him down field in front of Cam on designed runs. - Earned starting spot his Sophomore year. Not intimidated by established players.
