Traded with rams to pick up a 5th round and still land a decent OT from Alabama

Protection and targets for EJ Manuel. Proud of the Bills FO.

Not to be annoying but could you please fix his name Laughing

Cyrus Kouandjio. We're gunna need to know it now.

Love it, glad it's a tackle, we're making smart picks. Now we either go DE or CB with our next pick unless a TE slips.

This guy has some SLOPPY feet. No way he starts week one. I bet we see him in some 3 tackle packages. Looks like a beast in the run game. Marrone must be confident in his coaching ability.

I think he can start right away. Most of his criticism comes from people grading him as a LT. He is a perfect fit in this offense. This is a run first offense and he will be a bulldozing RT. Of course there are risks with him, but I think Marrone will use his strengths perfectly. Smashmouth football.

I shouldn't say "no way" but Marrone has his work cut out for him.

This. Arm technique is fine and since we don't have a lefty QB he'll work well in our system. Just needs to refine his footwork. Doesn't get out of a kickslide smoothly but we run primarily to the left so this was a good pick.

My biggest concern is his knee health. Arthritis was the initial report and they've been shaky for years. If he's healthy it's tremendous value and we have our bookend tackles for a while. If he's not, well things could go south quickly. I think we've all seen enough guys with immense talent fall apart because of bad knees.

Fits the offense very well though, very good run blocker. Just needs to work on pass pro but we have great O-line minds on this team so I'm not too concerned.

Great pick. Especially since we added a 5th.

I really like Mayock's comparison to Phil Loadholt, it's exactly who I think of when I see him play.

Looks like he's excited to play, specifically, excited to block for Spiller.

Love our first 2 picks.
