TUSCALOOSA --For Alabama left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, the most difficult part of his decision to leave school early was telling his brother, Arie Kouandjio, who started next to him at left guard this season. While Cyrus didn’t provide any details of the conversation, he said it was “very emotional.”
“I had to kind of exclude my emotions and use my logic,” he said.
Kouandjio is the fourth-ranked offensive tackle according to ESPN.com. Kouandjio said he received a first-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.
