Cleveland Browns: 2016 depth chart predictions
There is a great deal of change on offense for the Browns, but left guard is another position that will see a familiar face in the starting role.
Joel Bitonio will get the nod as the starter at the beginning of the season, while Austin Pasztor will serve as the backup.
Bitonio was drafted with the No. 35 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the Browns and has been a consistent starter when healthy, starting 26 games in his first two seasons. As long as he can stay healthy in 2016, the left side of the Browns offensive line should be considered one of the best in the league.
If health is an issue, Pasztor can step in and provide some help. He played in all 16 games last year and started four. The 6-foot-7 Pasztor has the ability to play both guard positions, and could even slide in at a tackle slot if needed. He was claimed off waivers last season and remains one of the few smart moves from an otherwise lost front office.
Bitonio will open the season as starter, but if he is injured or his production begins to fall, expect Pasztor to get a chance to prove himself.
