The Buffalo Bills added to their secondary depth by utilizing their fourth round selection on Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell. Adding to the defensive backfield was a priority for the Bills after having six of their 29 pre-draft visitors being secondary players. Cockrell makes it four for four in terms of Bills selections that were also pre-draft visitors.

A four-year starter in the ACC, Cockrell had a productive career for the Blue Devils. His best trait is his ability to break on the football as evidenced by his 12 career interceptions and 50 career pass breakups.

It’s the final day of the 2014 NFL draft, and Day 3 is typically the most unpredictable of all. Players who were projected to be drafted higher often tend to continue falling for one reason or another, while teams will start to stump even some of the most educated media draftniks with hidden small-school gems.

Even so, there’s plenty of talent still on the draft board, and there’s players at positions across the board who would seemingly be great fits for specific teams in Round 4.

After utilizing their first two selections on offensive players, the Buffalo Bills turned their attention to the defensive side of the ball in the third round, investing the 73rd pick in the 2014 NFL draft on Louisville inside linebacker Preston Brown.

A three-year starter in the middle of the Louisville defense, Preston Brown has been a consistent contributor. He had one of the best games of his career on the biggest stage of his career when he had 13 tackles with 1.5 tackles for loss in the Cardinals’ Sugar Bowl victory over the Florida Gators at the end of his junior season.

After trading back from three spots from pick 41 and acquiring an additional fifth-round pick in this years draft, the Buffalo Bills utilized their second round selection, the No. 44 overall pick, on Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio. With offensive tackle being a position of need entering the draft, Kouandjio provides instant competition for incumbent starting right tackle Erik Pears, and has the potential to unseat Pears and start in his rookie season.

The Alabama Crimson Tide entrusted Kouandjio to take over as their blindside protector at left tackle as a sophomore in 2012. He started every game since and fared very well.
