The Buffalo Bills reached a contract agreement with their final unsigned draft pick, offensive tackle Spencer Brown, the team announced Tuesday.

Here are five things to know about Northern Iowa offensive tackle Spencer Brown, selected by the Bills in the third round, 93rd overall, on Friday.

Brown, 6-foot-8 and 311 pounds, was a third-round pick, taken with the 93rd overall selection. His deal is for four years, the Bills reported. The value was not disclosed, but it’s going to be worth about $4.8 million overall, based on the value of the other picks late in the third round. Brown’s salary cap figure for this year will be about $880,000.

Brown started 32 games at Northern Iowa as a right tackle, although he did not play in 2020 because he opted out of the season. Northern Iowa, a Football Championship Subdivision school, saw its fall season postponed until the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Brown figures to win a spot on the Bills’ roster as either the No. 3 or the No. 4 tackle. He was one of three offensive linemen drafted by Buffalo, along with fifth-round tackle Tommy Doyle and seventh-round guard Jack Anderson.
