2014 NFL Draft: Browns select Nevada offensive lineman Joel Bitonio with No. 35 pick

By Ryan Lewis Published: May 9, 2014

The Browns drafted Nevada offensive lineman Joel Bitonio with the No. 35 overall selection in the second round tonight. 

The Browns, even in the midst of the Josh Gordon suspension reports, chose for the third time to overlook the wide receiver position, this time to address the offensive line. 

Bitonio is 6-foot-4, 302 pounds. Bitonio registered 38 career starts at tackle but due to his "mean streak" and ability to block "when in a phone booth," according to some, he best profiles as an offensive guard for the Browns. 

The Browns have now addressed needs at quarterback, cornerback and offensive line. Wide receiver now stands as the biggest need.
