Browns have selected tackle Joel Bitonio

The Cleveland Browns seemed like they'd be a lock to take a wide receiver at this spot, but with the 35th-overall pick, they instead took Nevada offensive tackle Joel Bitonio.

Viewed as one of the most versatile lineman in this draft, Bitonio could play tackle, guard or center in the NFL. With the Browns though, he's likely going to start at right tackle.

An excerpt of Nolan Nawrocki's scouting report on NFL.com:

Plays with vinegar and seeks to bury defenders -- nasty finisher who runs his feet on contact and consistently blocks defenders off the screen. Extremely tough and durable. Highly versatile -- can play any position on the line. Outstanding personal character and football character -- work ethic, leadership and responsibility are all exemplary. Produced the best 10-yard split (1.69 seconds) and 20-yard split (2.80) of any offensive lineman at the combine.
