Buffalo Bills’ left tackle Cordy Glenn is a mountain of a man to say the least standing at 6′ 6″ and weighing in at 345 lbs. and was considered one of the top offensive line prospects coming into the 2012 NFL Draft.

There were several doubters in the press about if Cordy could play left tackle at the next level, however, they felt at worst he could go back to be playing guard and be a stud at that.  That being said, Glenn wowed everyone for his versatility as he was asked not only to protect then quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, but also he was asked to pull out and be the road grading offensive lineman for C.J. Spiller and for the most part he excelled at both, which bodes well for his career. This year he could be protecting new rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel from the get go and he could be called upon what he did last year, which could bode well for both of their respective careers as Manuel can take off and run à la Vince Young or Daunte Culpepper.

What happens to Glenn and the Buffalo Bills? Do they make the playoffs for the first time since 1999 under new head coach Doug Marrone? Do they have another abysmal season performance? Who knows, but it likely will be extremely fun to watch, especially if Cordy Glenn keeps on improving in his sophomore campaign the way his rookie year kept on getting better, and he might be considered one of the bigger (literally and physically) steals of the NFL Draft.
