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.
