We’ve heard Courtney Upshaw, Michael Floyd, Riley Reiff, and now add Cordy Glenn to that list. All of those names have been listed at one point at possibilities for the Buffalo Bills draft in the first round of the upcoming NFL draft.
Glenn is the latest name to be thrown out there for the Bills, mentioned by multiple writers in recent mock drafts for the Bills in the 10th spot. Pro Football Weekly’s Nolan Narwaki is one of the writers who picked Glenn for the Bills, saying
” Since GM Buddy Nix took control of the draft in 2010, the Bills have plucked both their first-round picks from the Southeast, where Nix was born, coached and scouted and has especially strong ties. OLT Demetress Bell signed with Philadelphia, leaving the Bills without a tackle possessing left tackle feet. Glenn showed continual improvement on the blind side as a senior and gives Nix enough reason to believe he can handle the task in the pros.”
According to cbssports.com Glenn is ranked 21st overall and third at his position, offensive guard. This could be a big need pick for the Bills if they decide to make it, especially if Iowa’s Riley Reiff is off the board. With the recent loss of offensive lineman Demetress Bell, getting offensive line help could be very important.
Glenn was a constant and versatile fixture on the Bulldogs offensive line in college, with a school record with 50 total starts, including 28 at left guard, 18 at left tackle and four at right guard. Having that versatility could be a huge plus for his draft prospect, as he could possibly play multiple spots on an NFL offensive line.
