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.

The first round of the 2014 NFL Draft didn’t go nearly how I projected it would—in fact, only Jadeveon Clowney and Jason Verrett landed in both the team and pick slot that I predicted—but that hasn’t stopped me, apparently in a draft-induced state of lunacy, from updating my projections for all 68 selections to come on Day 2.

The draft only gets harder to project from here on out, especially with some of the enticing that remains on the board, but there are many team/player combinations remaining in the draft that make a great deal of sense.
