2014 NFL Draft results: Buffalo Bills pick Preston Brown

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Spikes is only on a one-year deal with the Bills, and Brown profiles as a potential two-down middle linebacker replacement next season, and should contribute on special teams as well.

With the No. 73 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Louisville linebacker Preston Brown.

Brown was a three-year starter for the Cardinals at inside linebacker, finishing his four-year playing career with 301 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and an interception. The 6'1", 251-pound Brown is a two-down thumper inside, and profiles as a backup linebacker, special teams addition (one would hope, at least) and a potential 2015 replacement for current starting middle linebacker Brandon Spikes, who signed a one-year free agent deal in March.

The Bills have also now drafted three players that made pre-draft visits to One Bills Drive this spring, emphatically continuing a trend four years in the making.

Barring a trade back up into the end of the third round, the Bills are done for the day with no remaining scheduled picks. What do you think of their Day 2 work?
