Left Guard: Joel Bitonio, Austin Pasztor
Right Guard: John Greco, Michael Bowie
Joel Bitonio had a disappointing sophomore season, but it’s important to remember that he only started 10 games. He was bothered by an injured ankle.
Hopefully, Bitonio will regain the form that made him one of the top NFL rookies in 2014.
At right guard, the job is Greco’s and his alone. No one figures to challenge this NFL vet, even though he might only be an average performer.
Considering the losses the Browns had in free agency, having Greco at least offers stability in that he’s played with Thomas and Bitonio. It’s tough enough to fill two line spots.
It’d be a lot harder and probably more noticeable (for the worse) to try and replace three.
Pasztor is versatile, while Bowie has some promise.
