We're rooting for Kouandjio to turn it around, but his struggles continued Wednesday in Buffalo's joint practice with the Steelers.
Tim Graham of The Buffalo News reported that the former Alabama star was "dominated" in line drills against Pittsburgh's defensive front, leaving Bills position coach Pat Morris to drop the boom:
"You might as well be Venus de Milo," Morris told Kouandjio, per Graham.
The rookie's massive 6-foot-7, 322-pound frame gives him ideal size to hold down the fort, but Kouandjio has looked sluggish and methodical coming off knee surgery.
A draft-day slider, Kouandjio is on the hook to show the Bills he's worthy of his second-round pedigree. There's plenty of time for that to happen, but Buffalo's bookend-in-waiting couldn't be off to a less glowing start.
