Bills Draft Alabama OT Kouandjio With 44th Pick
The Buffalo Bills have selected Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio with the 44th pick in the NFL draft after trading down three spots in the second round.
Kouandjio is listed at 6-foot-6 and 322 pounds, and left Alabama after three seasons. He addresses Buffalo’s need at tackle, and will be given a chance to compete for the starting job on the right side.
The Bills swapped second-round picks with St. Louis and also added the Rams’ fifth-round selection, 153rd overall.
The Bills already made a splash on Thursday, by trading up five spots to select Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins with the fourth pick.
Watkins’ addition prompted Buffalo to trade receiver Stevie Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, hours before the second round began.
