04/30/2012 - A closer look at the Bills' picks: Round 2/41 - Cordy Glenn, OT, 6-5, 348, Georgia...Glenn has been on Buffalo's radar for awhile and they were thrilled he was there in round two after a run on tackles. While some teams viewed him as a guard, he's a tackle in their eyes and his nimble feet and huge wingspan make him a candidate to start right away. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I think football players are a lot like spouses; what looks good to one don't look good to another. Obviously he looked good to us and I'm glad he didn't look good to maybe some of the others." -- Bills national scout Darrell Moody on why Cordy Glenn, who had first-round grades, dropped to the second round. - The Sports Xchange

04/30/2012 - Buffalo's second-round pick, left tackle Cordy Glenn, has arms that measure nearly 36 inches. Arm length is a critical measuring point in grading tackles, Nix indicated. "Huge wingspan," he said. "You've got a long way to run around him." - The Sports Xchange

04/30/2012 - The Bills needed help at cornerback, left offensive tackle and wide receiver. Their first three picks? A cornerback, a tackle, a wide receiver and all have the potential to make an impact as rookies. The Bills, coming off a 6-10 season and entering their third year of rebuilding under the eyes of general manager Buddy Nix and coach Chan Gailey, are still a land of opportunity for draft picks. First-rounder Stephon Gilmore, labeled the most complete cornerback in the draft, could grab a starting spot from Drayton Florence or Terrence McGee and the door is wide open at left tackle for second-rounder Cordy Glenn. Wide receiver T.J. Graham fills a need for deep speed in the mix of prospects opposite Stevie Johnson, but will need time. BEST PICK: Offensive tackle Cordy Glenn: With the loss of Demetress Bell to the Eagles and with only second-year pro Chris Hairston on board, the large, nimble Glenn should start as a rookie. With any luck, he'll anchor the critical left side job for a decade. - The Sports Xchange

04/27/2012 - OG Cordy Glenn, Georgia -- A nimble 6-6, 345-pounder who played left tackle in the SEC, Glenn projects to guard for some teams but will almost assuredly get a chance to play on the edge in Buffalo.

04/26/2012 - ROB RANG'S TOP 50 PLAYERS OF THE 2012 NFL DRAFT: 17. Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia: Measuring in at 6-5 and 346 pounds at the Senior Bowl, Glenn nonetheless demonstrated surprising agility in Mobile, boosting his chances at remaining at left tackle. While good outside, he was even better at left guard as a junior and may be best served moving back inside in the NFL. If he played with greater intensity Glenn could rank among the elite offensive line prospects in the 2012 draft. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/05/2012 - Several of the Ravens' top decision makers predictably didn't tip their hands at their annual draft luncheon yesterday in Owings Mills. However, as General Manager Ozzie Newsome, Director of Player Personnel Eric DeCosta, Director of College Scouting Joe Hortiz and head coach John Harbaugh took turns answering questions from reporters in Owings Mills, the Ravens had a representative in Madison, Wisconsin, where former Badgers center Peter Konz was working out for teams. The Ravens are also expected to bring Konz to Owings Mills for an official visit ahead of the draft, more proof that the center is definitely on the team's radar for possible selection with the 29th pick on April 29. Asked specifically about the draft's interior offensive line class, DeCosta mentioned Konz along with several others. "I think there are some good players," he said. "Obviously, [David] DeCastro from Stanford is a guy that a lot of teams are looking at as a guard. He's a tough guy, a good player. [Kevin] Zeitler from Wisconsin is another guard - a good player, had a good week at the Senior Bowl. [He] played really well in the game, not as well in the practices. He's a good player. I think his teammate Konz is another good player at center. He's had some injuries. All those guys, you figure they're picked in the latter half of the first round, the early part of the second round. Another guy is Cordy Glenn from Georgia. He's played some tackle, he's played some guard. He's a swing guy. He'll probably get picked between pick 15 and pick 35, right in that range, too." - Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun

04/02/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT TOP OFFENSIVE LINEMEN: Cordy Glenn, Georgia, 6-5, 345...This massive man looked like a natural when he was first thrown into a starting role as a freshman. Glenn went on to tie a school record with 50 total starts, including 28 at left guard, 18 at left tackle and four at right guard. There was even talk about trying him on the defensive line, but it didn't happen. Glenn obliterates defenders on the run and was a very good pass protector in college, certainly a factor in Georgia finishing third in the SEC with an average of 413 yards of offense per game. Glenn appears most natural at guard, but was used at left tackle last season and in Senior Bowl workouts. He lacks an explosive first step -- perhaps quantified by a 23??-inch vertical jump that was third-worst at the combine -- so he will probably play inside in the NFL. He has all the strength you would expect of a man his size and then some, but somehow manages good enough footwork to be efficient much of the time as a pass blocker and can get downfield to pick off second-level defenders, much to the surprise of both scouts and the overwhelmed defenders themselves. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

02/25/2012 - Georgia's Cordy Glenn weighed in as one of the largest offensive line prospects at the Combine, tipping the scale at 345 pounds. And after his 40-yard dash, he might also be considered one of the most athletic. Glenn ran an unofficial 4.96 in his first 40-yard dash attempt Saturday morning, including a 1.76 yard 10-yard split. Glenn is expected to participate in every drill this week, already lifting 31 times on the bench, an impressive feat for a player with 36" arms. He played most of his collegiate career inside at guard before moving out to left tackle as a senior in 2011. Scouts question whether or not he can protect the blindside at the next level, but Glenn helped answer some of those concerns with a positive week at the Senior Bowl. If he performs well athletically in drills this week, showing NFL scouts he can play outside in the NFL, Glenn's draft stock could jump into the top-20 discussion. Glenn currently ranks as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 2 rated guard. - NFLDraftScout.com

02/23/2012 - NFL DRAFT SCOUT PRE-COMBINE TOP 64: 23. Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia, 6-6, 346, 1-2...This massive man looked like a natural when he was first thrown into a starting role as a freshman. Glenn went on to tie a school record with 50 total starts, including 28 at left guard, 18 at left tackle and four at right guard. There was even talk about trying him on the defensive line, but it didn't happen. Glenn obliterates defenders on the run and is excellent in pass protection, certainly a factor in Georgia finishing third in the SEC with an average of 413 yards a game. Glenn appears most natural at guard, but was used at left tackle last season and in Senior Bowl workouts. He struggled against speed rushers, so expect him to be inside in the NFL. He has all the strength you would expect of a man his size and then some, but it his footwork on pass blocking and ability to get downfield to pick off second level defenders that is a surprise, both to scouts and the overwhelmed defenders themselves. - Frank Cooney - The Sports Xchange, NFL Draft Scout

02/16/2012 - The consensus appears to be that Glenn is foremost an NFL guard prospect, rather than tackle, but there are still a few personnel people who want to look closer at tape of Glenn at left tackle in '11, and evaluate him there before making any decisions about his NFL position. That's the case, even though Glenn seemed to struggle at times during the season with SEC speed-rushers, and also stumbled a bit in the Senior Bowl practices. Said one AFC area scout, in discussing Glenn with The Sports Xchange: "We're definitely leaning [to guard], but we want to be really sure, and take another look." On the official combine invitee list, Glenn is listed as an "OT" prospect, but clubs will regard him at tackle and guard spots at Indianapolis later this month. One team even said that it might, at Indy and in Glenn's workout during his pro day, take a look at him in a few center-specific drills, even though he never played there while in Athens. Two other teams mentioned Glenn as a possible right tackle prospect. "It really doesn't matter to me," Glenn said. "I just want to play." Probably, the former Bulldogs' standout isn't among the top four tackle prospects in the draft, arguably Matt Kalil (Southern Cal), Riley Reiff (Iowa), Jonathan Martin (Stanford) and Michael Adams (Ohio State). - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

02/16/2012 - The top guard perch is likely held by Martin's teammate at Stanford, David DeCastro. But that still doesn't mean that Glenn, who measured 6-feet-5 1/2 and 346 pounds at the Senior Bowl, won't be a coveted player in the first round. There are still some teams -- Pittsburgh, New England, and the New York Giants come to mind as a few -- who highly value offensive line versatility. The Steelers, for instance, practice players at multiple positions during the week, and offensive line coach Sean Kugler has placed a high priority in position flexibility during his two seasons with the franchise. The emphasis on diversity has paid off for Kugler and Pittsburgh because of injuries. During his college career, Glenn has started 28 games at left guard, 18 at left tackle, and four at right guard. His 50 starts tied former teammate Clint Boling, a fourth-round pick of Cincinnati in 2010, for the most by an offensive lineman in Georgia history, and are tied for the third-most ever in the program. Glenn may not have the feet to play left tackle at the NFL level but, if he keeps his weight under control and does well at the combine and in private workouts, it's hard not to see how his power, drive, and tenaciousness will keep him out of the first round. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

02/16/2012 - Versatility can be invaluable for draft prospects, but in the age of specialization, many teams adhere to the "Kentucky Fried Chicken" Rule: Do one thing, and do it well. There are, however, franchises that admire players who are able to fill a variety of roles. Witness the New England Patriots, who chose former Kent State quarterback Julian Edelman as a wide receiver in 2009, and have used him in various spots in his three seasons, including as a safety in 2011. The versatility of Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn, who has played every position but center in his Bulldogs' tenure and has been a starter at both guard spots and left tackle, is one of the elements of his game that will be both scrutinized and debated in the next couple months. "I [prefer] to think it's a strength," said Glenn, a blocking Bedouin, who started all of 2011 at left tackle, and who worked at that position in Senior Bowl practices. "I can really help [teams] wherever they need it on the line." Glenn, 22, is a man of few words, particularly when speaking about himself. He prefers, he acknowledged, to "let [his] play speak." It has spoken volumes, since most scouts regard him as a first-round selection. But scouts will probably also devote considerable verbiage before the draft to determining at what position Glenn will be the best fit in the league. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange

01/04/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL INVITE: Glenn was a third team AP All-American in 2011 and first team All-SEC pick by both the AP and league coaches. The left tackle anchored an offensive line that ranked third in the SEC in total offense this year, averaging 413.85 yards per game. Glenn currently ranks second all-time in school history in starts for an offensive lineman with 49. His next start against Michigan State will tie him with former Senior Bowler Clint Boling for the school mark for offensive linemen. The 2012 Senior Bowl will be a homecoming of sorts for Jones. The Centreville, Alabama native landed on both the AP and Coaches All-SEC second teams in 2011. He was also a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, given annually to the best center in the nation and was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week twice this season. Jones was named to UGA's Team of the Decade and has made 48 career starts, ranking third all-time in school history for an offensive lineman. - SeniorBowl.com

12/07/2011 - 2011 ALL-SEC FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): OL - Cordy Glenn, Georgia, has been selected All-SEC Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted upon by the SEC head coaches. Glenn, a 6-5, 348-pound native of Riverdale, Ga., leads the team with 49 career starts (third all-time in UGA history for non-kickers), including the last 46 contests. He was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week following the Bulldogs' 24-20 win over Florida and has helped sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray stand at the No. 2 spot in the conference in both total offense (229.6 ypg.) and passing yards per game (220.1) this season. - Georgia football

12/07/2011 - 2011 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-SEC FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM: OL - Cordy Glenn, Georgia, Sr., has been selected All-SEC Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by The Associated Press. Glenn, a 6-5, 348-pound native of Riverdale, Ga., leads the team with 49 career starts (third all-time in UGA history for non-kickers), including the last 46 contests. He was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week following the Bulldogs' 24-20 win over Florida and has helped sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray stand at the No. 2 spot in the conference in both total offense (229.6 ypg.) and passing yards per game (220.1) this season. - Georgia football

10/31/2011 - WEEK 9 SEC OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Cordy Glenn, Tackle, Georgia, graded out at 82 percent with three intimidation blocks during Georgia's 24-20 win over Florida...Glenn helped anchor an offense that racked up 185 yards on the ground and 354 total yards during the Bulldogs' sixth win in a row...He was instrumental in giving quarterback Aaron Murray time as Georgia bounced back from being down 17-3 early in the game as the Bulldogs were 3-for-3 on fourth down conversions...Glenn served as a captain for the second straight game for the Bulldogs. - SEC football

09/10/2011 - ROB RANG'S WEEK 2 FIVE PROSPECTS TO WATCH: OT/OG Cordy Glenn, Georgia: A dominant guard throughout much of his career with the Bulldogs, Glenn was asked to move outside to left tackle against an experienced and athletic Boise State defensive front last week and not surprisingly struggled. At 6-5, 345 pounds, Glenn may simply lack the quick feet and balance to remain outside. As I pointed out in my "Big Board," however, I am not willing to move him out of my Top 32 after one poor performance. As good as the Boise front four was, Glenn and the Bulldogs are in for an even tougher test tomorrow against South Carolina's pass rushers. The Gamecocks boast two of the better rushers in the conference in senior Melvin Ingram and rising junior Devin Taylor, who also has a place on my Top 32. I'm looking forward to all of this weekend's games, but from a scouting standpoint, this is the one to focus on. This game begins at 4:30 ET and will be televised by ESPN. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

09/09/2011 - WEEK 2, FIVE MATCHUPS TO WATCH: 1. Georgia LT Cordy Glenn vs. South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney...Glenn, who moved from left guard to left tackle this off-season due to a third ACL injury suffered by Trinton Sturdivant in the past four years, faces the country's top freshman on defense in Clowney. So not only does Glenn need to play well to help his team earn the early advantage in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division, but NFL scouts will be quite interested in the way he handles such a talented player. Glenn must show the initial quickness and lateral agility to stay with Clowney off the snap, as well as stay in front of him if Georgia's sophomore QB Aaron Murray needs to extend the play. Many bigger linemen can push rushers around the corner with their length, but staying with the block with foot quickness and agility can be difficult for them. Glenn struggled at times with wide speed rushes last week against Boise, but Clowney relies more on length and strength as a pass rusher -- which should play into the 6-5, 350-pound Glenn's hands. If he overextends and bends at the waist throughout tonight's game, allowing Clowney and other defenders access to Murray, then scouts may consider Glenn as a power guard prospect only. - Chad Reuter, NFLDraftScout.com

09/06/2011 - WEEK 1 REWIND: A few highly touted players struggled in season-openers. I'm quite high on the upside of Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn, for example. However, the behemoth Glenn (6-5, 345) struggled with Boise State's speed in his first start at left tackle in nearly two years. While Glenn did start four games at left tackle in 2009, the other 32 starts of his career have come inside at either left (28) or right (four) guard. If Glenn continues to struggle outside, he'll confirm what scouts already suspect - that he best projects inside at the pro level. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/19/2011 - 2011 SEC PRESEASON ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): OL Cordy Glenn, Georgia, Sr., has been selected All-SEC Football Preseason First Team for the 2011 college football season as selected by the SEC head football coaches. - SEC football
