NFL DRAFT: UNI’s Brown selected in third round
The Buffalo Bills doubled down on pass rush, and then they addressed protecting their own passer.
After selecting University of Miami’s Greg Rousseau in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday, the Bills chose another defensive end in Wake Forest’s Carlos Basham with their second-round pick, 61st overall, on Friday.
Buffalo then turned to offense by selecting Northern Iowa offensive tackle Spencer Brown with its third-round pick, 93rd overall. The 23-year-old Lenox, Iowa, native is listed at 6-foot-8 and 311 pounds, and had 32 career starts over three seasons.
Named preseason FCS All-American last year, Brown elected to forego his senior year by entering the draft after the Missouri Valley Football Conference postponed starting its season until this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.
