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
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.
