The Bills have concluded their draft pick signings.

Offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, a second-round selection who could push for a starting role as a rookie, has signed with Buffalo, the club said Thursday.

The 6-foot-7, 322-pound Kouandjio was a two-season starter at Alabama (2012-2013). He suffered a torn ACL and MCL as a freshman in 2011, but the knee reportedly received a positive testimonial from Dr. James Andrews before the draft.

After the draft, Bills G.M. Doug Whaley called Kouandjio a “prototypical right tackle” and indicated the club was not worried about the tackle’s health.

“We’re excited about his size and his length and what he may lack in a little foot quickness, he’ll make up in length and make them take a bigger arc to get to the quarterback,” Whaley said, according to a transcript from the club.

Kouandjio was the second of seven players selected by the Bills in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller running behind this line is going to be nice.
