NEW YORK - With the #35 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns have selected OT Joel Bitonio from Nevada.
This despite news earlier in the night that WR Josh Gordon faces a season-long league ban for a second failed drug test.
Bitonio's NFL.com draft profile says he has "the tenacity, leg drive and mean streak that is highly coveted by OL coaches."
In the third round, wth the #71 pick, the Browns took OLB Christian Kirksey out of Iowa.
The Browns then swapped with the 49ers to take RB Terrance West from Towson University in Maryland.
