G Joel Bitonio – 100 (All Starts)
Joel Bitonio was the obvious standout of the Browns 2014 NFL Draft class. He was taken alongside Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel, not exactly all-time greats. He would’ve had some competition from Christian Kirksey, had he been healthy. If Kirksey played every game before leaving for Green Bay, he would’ve been at 96.
Bitonio, on the other hand, hit 100. He not only hit 100 but he’s started every game he ever played. He did miss some time, this milestone should’ve been hit in the fifth game of last season, but he missed six games in 2015 and 11 games in 2016.
That’s it, however. Since then he’s been nothing but one of the three best offensive linemen the team has had since it came back, with Alex Mack being in a close second to his third and Joe Thomas being the far and away best of the lot.
Bitonio has been selected to the past three Pro Bowls and the past three All-Pro lineups as a second-teamer; making him routinely a top four-guard in the NFL at worst. At 29 years old, he still has a lot of time to get to a fourth, fifth, and maybe even sixth Pro Bowl/All-Pro team and if he does, he’ll be a lock for the Hall of Fame.
