Rookie Preston Brown has big opportunity
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(7/9/14) With linebacker Kiko Alonso (ACL) likely done for the year, Bills third-round rookie Preston Brown could win a starting job, reports the Buffalo News. Brown "was outstanding at the team’s voluntary workouts and minicamp," the paper said, and "coaches raved behind the scenes about how well Brown practiced."
Brown led Louisville in tackles in 2013 for the second straight year as he made 98 stops, 12.5 for loss, while adding 4.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. He'll vie with Keith Rivers and Nigel Bradham to replace Alonso.

|(7/2/14) Bills general manager Doug Whaley said in a statement Wednesday that linebacker Kiko Alonso tore his left ACL and "will most likely" miss the 2014 season.
"He will be scheduled for surgery in the near future and begin a rehabilitation program at the appropriate time," Whaley said. "We feel badly for Kiko because he has worked very hard this offseason in preparation for the upcoming season, but we look forward to his return with his style of play that made him one of the league's outstanding rookies in 2013."
Nigel Bradham and Preston Brown figure to be part of the competition to replace Alonso in the lineup this season.

Bills draft LB Preston Brown
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(5/9/14) With the No. 73 pick in the NFL Draft, the Bills selected linebacker Preston Brown from Louisville.
Brown moved to middle linebacker for the Cardinals in 2012. He was the Cardinals' leading tackler for the second straight season in 2013, amassing 98 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks with a pass breakup, three forced fumbles and a 48-yard fumble return touchdown.
He will likely see time on special teams in 2014, but he could eventually replace Brandon Spikes in 2015 since Spikes is on a one-year deal.
|Preston Brown might not make much of an impact for the Bills and Fantasy owners this season, but he could be a solid contributor in 2015. The Bills drafted Brown with the No. 73 overall pick in the NFL Draft from Louisville, and he will likely play behind Brandon Spikes this year and see time on special teams. But in 2015 Brown could be the starting middle linebacker. Brown moved to middle linebacker for the Cardinals in 2012. He was the Cardinals' leading tackler for the second straight season in 2013, amassing 98 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks with a pass breakup, three forced fumbles and a 48-yard fumble return touchdown. He is not worth drafting in most IDP leagues this year, but in dynasty leagues plan on drafting him with a late-round flier with the hope he plays this year but dominates in 2015.
