Cordy Glenn, Buffalo Bills rookie Left Tackle, whom was taken in the second round of the NFL draft has won my award for the player of the week. Personally I was extremely high on him coming out of the University of Georgia anywhere seemingly on the offensive line.
Cordy is a massive man at 6′ 6″ and 343 pounds, and based on the first two regular season games, he is extremely light on his feet for such a massive frame. I was so high on him coming out of college, that I wouldn’t have been mad or disappointed even if the Buffalo Bills took him at pick ten instead of Stephon Gilmore whom we selected since offensive line is always considered a position of need especially here in Buffalo.
The reason why I am giving him the award this week, because he was plowing the road either straight forward or even being a pulling tackle for running back C.J. Spiller all day. Additionally, Cordy protected Ryan Fitzpatrick all day and prevented all pass rushing attempts from pass-rushing outside linebacker Tamba Hali.
On local sports radio after the game, I got to talk to one of the Buffalo Bills during the post game show, and he went on to say how offensive linemen that start off at a high level, usually keep on getting better and better week in and week out and year in and year out as well. If Cordy keeps on getting better we might have drafted the biggest steal of the 2012 NFL Draft. (in sheer mass, and not to mention actual value.)
Thank you again for reading, I hope you enjoyed your weekend of football on any level, not just the NFL. I strongly encourage everyone to post a comment on here or hit me up on twitter @TheProfessorSD! Have a great evening and I will be back tomorrow to discuss more issues.
