2014 NFL Draft: Bills get B- for taking Cyrus Kouandjio at No. 44
With the No. 44 overall pick in the second round of the NFL draft, the Bills have taken Cyrus Kouandjio.
NEW YORK -- Although former Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio didn't have the greatest of seasons in 2013, that didn't preclude him from sticking his name into the draft. The lack of a standout year apparently didn't matter to the Bills, who drafted Kouandjio with the No. 44 overall pick.
But with 2012 second-round pick Cordy Glenn already entrenched at left tackle, the Kouandjio selection doesn't necessarily mean he's slated to play at left tackle. Instead, the right side might be where he's headed.
As NFLDraftScout.com's Rob Rang writes, "Kouandjio's best fit in the NFL is likely at right tackle, as he does not possess ideal balance or quickness to handle speed rushers. His length and strength make him an effective pass blocker as he stands and with improved technique, Pro Bowls could be in his future."
As for CBSports.com's Pete Prisco's opinion.
I thought Kouandjio regressed in a big way last year If he can play like he did in 2012, it's a good pick. GRADE: B- http://t.co/KPxAyHqyNs— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) May 10, 2014
