Kouandjio has been lining up in OTA practices at right tackle this week. He’s been sprinkled in with the first unit over the first two days of practices as it appears he’ll be in direct competition with incumbent
“I’m always ready to compete and I do have respect for the guys that are already here,” he said. “But I’m going to compete.”
“When you feel someone’s ready to go from the standpoint of knowledge where they’re not going to get anyone hurt, throw them in there,” said Marrone earlier this week. “I’ve had a lot of success by taking young guys and once they know what they’re doing, throw them in there with the first group and see what they can do. I think you’ll see a lot of that as we look forward in camp.”
Kouandjio started 27 games at Alabama at left tackle, but is being trained on the right side with Buffalo, something that the rookie does not see as an issue.
“I will play left, right, in and out, it doesn’t matter,” he said.
