Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Like his younger brother, Arie certainly looks the part of an early round NFL draft pick, boasting broad shoulders, long arms and tree trunks for legs. He flashes impressive initial quickness and the power to simply shove defenders off the line of scrimmage. Kouandjio can simply maul opponents in the running game.

WEAKNESSES: Also like his brother, Arie comes with technical flaws and some medical questions. He is just as likely to be the last off the ball as the first, despite his athleticism. Kouandjio is overly reliant on his initial punch to knock defenders off balance, too often failing to latch on and keep his feet shuffling to truly mirror opponents.

Further, he missed virtually all of the 2011 season with a knee injury. Though he played in 10 games in a reserve capacity in 2012, last season was Kouandjio's first as a starter.

Player Overview

The older brother of Buffalo Bills second round pick (No. 44 overall) Cyrus Kouandjio, Arie is likely a year away from joining his sibling in the NFL. The two formed the left side of Alabama's offensive line in 2013, with the older Kouandjio capably manning the left guard role.
