Buffalo Bills 2013 Breakout Candidate: Cordy Glenn
Buffalo Bills left tackle Cordy Glenn surprised a lot of fans and experts around the league with how effective he was at left tackle with his footwork in his rookie season. Glenn is a mountain of a man at 6-foot-6, 345 pounds, and he can both pull out and be the lead blocker for running backs. Also, he can stay in and be a great blind side tackle, protecting the quarterback.
Glenn turned heads, as he held his own at left tackle while most draft experts saw him as a guard, and that was likely the case as he played three seasons for the University of Georgia Bulldogs at that position and looked like the best guard in the nation after his junior campaign. However, in his senior year, he played offensive tackle and looked solid there as well, and that is why he slipped to the second round of last year’s NFL Draft; he wanted to be considered an offensive tackle first.
One reason why Glenn could be poised for a breakout season in 2013 is that he looked great in the 13 games he started in, however, if he were to play all 16 this year, he could become a household name and all-pro at left tackle sooner rather than later. Another thing that could help him greatly would be if the breakout star of 2012,C.J. Spiller, has an absolute monster year as the Bills’ feature running back, and that is extremely likely if he gets the number of carries he deserves in the league.
