Offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio looks like a starter
Cyrus Kouandjio took first-team reps at right tackle for the Bills throughout OTAs and minicamp. Kouandjio did not have a good 2014. As the second-round pick last year, he had a tough preseason and ended up on the bench. But this year there has been a resurgence by Kouandjio and he now appears to be the favorite to start at right tackel for the Bills.
“I think he’s making a lot of progress, that’s the number one thing, guys coming in every day, showing up number one, showing up on time, working hard and showing improvement, and that’s what he’s done,” Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Wednesday.
Kouandjio credits working with former NFL offensive lineman LeCharles Bentley and new offensive line coach Aaron Kromer:
“I’m learning a lot from [Kromer],” Kouandjio said Thursday. “You can tell he was one of those guys that did his homework. He knows what he’s doing out there. He watches a lot of film to come up with a lot of technique things he comes up with. And I think that’s the most important thing for me, coach Kromer, because I trust him. I trust his techniques. I just go with it.”
