Fralic was one of the most decorated offensive line to play for the Panthers. Pennsylvania Football News named him to the “All Century” team of Pennsylvania high school football players. He was the second overall pick in the 1985 NFL Draft and named to the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team.
“He’s a heck of a player,” Fralic said of the senior left tackle. “I love the way he plays. It’s all good. That’s the way you need to go, you got to play to the whistle. I think he’s physically talented. I appreciate from what I’ve watched through the years is he is trying to get better.”
Watching Bisnowaty over the years at Pitt, I have marveled at his ability. Plenty of impressive offensive linemen have come through the Panthers program of late and personally he ranks right near the top. He may not reacht he first-round like Panthers’ Jeff Otah did in 2008 (19th overall selection), but Bisnowaty should be the first senior tackle off the 2017 NFL Draft board.
Bisnowaty makes it look easy; he is in total control of his man, directs them out of the play, quick in his stance, packs punch and looks for bodies to hit when reaching the second level. Relishes contact and shows a feisty demeanor and rarely if ever loses point of attack. Simply hounds defender the entire play. Bisnowaty has good size with long arms. He displays above average quickness along with a highly competitive nature. The combination of his long hair, nasty streak and vintage facemask make him a throwback to the positon.
