05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Browns picks: Round 2/35 - Joel Bitonio, T/G, 6-4, 302, Nevada...Bitonio could provide competition for starting right tackle Mitchell Schwartz. The loser of the battle could end up starting at guard. Bitonio is versatile enough to play center. - The Sports Xchange

05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 41/3. Joel Bitonio, OG, Nevada, 6-4, 302, 4.92, 2...Bitonio proved his versatility while playing in 51 games at Nevada, starting his last 38, including 26 at right tackle and 12 at left tackle. According to one stats service, since the beginning of the 2012 season, he gave up only one quarterback pressure and two sacks and was penalized only five times through a span of 2,054 snaps. Often overworks to needlessly bury a defender. From left tackle last season, Bitonio manhandled UCLA's top ten prospect, OLB Anthony Barr. Frankly: An undersized college tackle, Bitonio can capitalize on his beastly mannerism as a guard who has a full array of tricks to get the job done. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com

04/29/2014 - Five players who should be on the St. Louis Rams' draft radar: OG Joel Bitonio, Nevada: Bitonio is one of the hotter names in the draft and he may not be available to the Rams at No. 44 overall. If he is, however, his grit and versatility would certainly make him an intriguing fit for a team looking for help at guard. Bitonio started the final three seasons of his career with the Wolfpack at left tackle but seamlessly made the transition inside to guard (and even took snaps at center) at the Senior Bowl, showing off the powerful bunch, good lateral agility and balance necessary to handle the transition. If the Rams are truly looking to take advantage of their unusual bounty of picks with plug-n-play options, Bitonio (and Mississippi State's Gabe Jackson) is one of the few worthy candidates. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/29/2014 - 2014 NFL Draft Offensive Line: Joel Bitonio, Nevada, 6-4, 302, 4.97...Bitonio proved his versatility while playing in 51 games at Nevada, starting his last 38, including 26 at right tackle and 12 at left tackle. According to one scouting service, since the beginning of the 2012 season, he gave up only one quarterback pressure and two sacks and was penalized only five times through a span of 2,054 snaps. Often overworks to needlessly bury a defender. From left tackle last season, Bitonio manhandled UCLA's top ten prospect, OLB Anthony Barr.

04/21/2014 - Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: OL Joel Bitonio, Nevada: Cincinnati's starting five on the offensive line is probably already on the roster, but depth is needed across the board, especially after the loss of Anthony Collins. Bitonio is a player that can wear several hats and line up on the edges (where he played in college), but also kick inside if needed. He is barrel-chested with the upper body strength to punch at the point of attack and bury his man, but he needs to show better body control and his lack of length shows up frequently. Bitonio is tenacious, stubborn and sticky as a blocker who is at his best in a phone booth where he can let his mean streak take over -- a reliable second-round draft pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/19/2013 - 2013 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): OL Joel Bitonio, Sr., Nevada,...Senior tackle Joel Bitonio was named Nevada's Basalite Big Blocker of the Year as he capped his career with an outstanding season for the Union. Bitonio also earned a Striker Award. - Nevada football
