  • The Buffalo Bills have reportedly released offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.
  • Last season, Kouandjio’s overall grade of 76.7 ranked 34th among 78 qualifying NFL tackles.
  • Kouandjio was also 29th out of 74 tackles with a pass-blocking efficiency of 95.2.
  • Over 207 pass-blocking snaps, Kouandjio didn’t allow a single QB hit, and surrendered only one sack. However, he did allow 12 QB hurries.
  • Kouandjio’s playing time did increase from 2015, as he went from playing only 234 snaps due to injuries to 406 in 2016.

    So the best pass blocking tackles are all in the AFC east.

      Or you could read the title of the graph and see that they are rating the top 5 in the AFC East

        My bad, those grades seemed high enough to be some of the best in the league.

    It would seem that rookie, G/T Dion Dawkins has won the RT starting job with the release of Cyrus Kouandjio, which i find a bit confusing since this article is saying that Kouandjio had a pretty good pass blocking grade. I do know that he has battled injuries the last few years, unless of course his skillset doesn’t match their scheme.

    Apparently they found him half naked in a farm field some time this off-season. I wonder if that has anything to do with his release.

    The Bills are going to be bad this season.
