The Bills make second and third round picks

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills selected Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio with the 44th pick in the NFL draft after trading down three spots in the second round.

Kouandjio is listed at 6-foot-6 and 322 pounds, and left Alabama after three seasons. He addresses Buffalo's need at tackle, and will be given a chance to compete for the starting job on the right side.

The Bills swapped second-round picks with St. Louis and also added the Rams' fifth-round selection, 153rd overall.

The Bills already made a splash on Thursday, by trading up five spots to select Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins with the fourth pick.

Watkins' addition prompted Buffalo to trade receiver Stevie Johnson to the San Francisco 49ers on Friday, hours before the second round began.

In the third round, The Buffalo Bills selected Louisville linebacker Preston Brown with the 73rd pick in the NFL draft.

Listed at 6-foot-1 and 251 pounds, Brown started 36 of 52 games over four seasons at Louisville. He's versatile enough to play the outside and middle positions. He finished with seven career sacks, including a career-best 4-1/2 last season, and 21-1/2 tackles for a loss.

The Bills turned their attention to defense after focusing on offense with their first two selections.

Buffalo opened the draft Thursday by trading up to select Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins with the fourth pick. On Friday, they moved down three spots in the second round and picked Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio at No. 44.

The Bills have four picks over the final four rounds on Saturday.
