With their 41st pick in the 2012 NFL Draft the Buffalo Bills selected OT Cordy Glenn from the University of Georgia. The board set up perfectly for the Bills who have been enamored with Glenn for a while now. They brought Glenn in for a visit pre-draft and were at the UGA Pro Day to watch him work out.
What you get in Glenn is a versatile OL prospect who could become an elite OG, or stick outside and become a very good OT. He played LT for UGA this past season but has spent time at both OG spots and has been excellent at every spot.
Glenn is a big body who moves his feet well, and has great strength. He struggled some early on at LT this season but seemed to gain his bearing hit his stride mid-season. You can’t bull rush him and he can absolutely engulf DE’s at the point of attack.
We want to see him clean up some of his footwork issues and start finishing more players but you can’t ask for better value on this pick.
Glenn is a fit a LT per the Bills, though he may project better on the right side. Here is the thing though Glenn is such a talented OG that even if he doesn’t work out at LT or RT, he could easily kick inside to OG and become an elite caliber player. You don’t get that kind of value in Round 2 very often. There is still some concern about the left side of our line if Glenn can’t man it but this goes a long way to shoring up the line as a whole because of Glenn’s ability to cover for injuries as well.
