Kouandjio, the No. 44 overall pick, will have contract parameters similar to last year's No. 44 overall pick, Kawann Short. Last spring, Short signed a four-year, $4.63 million contract with the Carolina Panthers, including $2.363 million guaranteed (of which $1.747 million was a signing bonus).
The Bills selected Kouandjio after trading down from No. 41 overall, and made the Alabama star the second tackle they'd picked in Round 2 in three years. The other early-drafted tackle, Cordy Glenn, has been the team's starting left tackle since Week 1 in his rookie season, and the expectation is that Kouandjio will immediately become Buffalo's starting right tackle, as well. In fact, the Bills are already giving Kouandjio first-team reps at OTA sessions this week, stealing a handful of snaps from veteran incumbent Erik Pears.
Buffalo now has all 89 players on their active roster under contract, with room to sign one more if necessary before training camp begins in roughly nine weeks.
