Wolf Pack offensive lineman Joel Bitonio was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the NFL Draft on Friday.
Bitonio was the third pick in the second round; number 35 overall. He's the second-highest Nevada player taken in the modern era, following Alex Van Dyke going 31st back in 1996.
Bitonio was named All-Conference first team as a senior. He started 38 straight games on the Wolf Pack's offensive line. The Browns love his versatility. Bitonio could play either guard or tackle in the NFL.
