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.

After making a one of the biggest splashes of the first round in trading up to select Clemson WR Sammy Watkins, the Buffalo Bills enter Day 2 of the 2014 NFL draft set to select with the 41st and 73rd overall selections on Friday. Surprisingly, none of Buffalo’s 2014 draft picks were used in the move up to select Watkins.

Over the previous five drafts from 2009 to 2013, the Bills have had a great deal of success with their second-round picks, having selected Kiko Alonso, Robert Woods, Cordy Glenn, Aaron Williams, Jairus Byrd and Andy Levitre over that span. There is plenty of talent available that could help the Bills find another gem and fill needs with their Day 2 draft choices.
