2012 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia

by Cory J. Bonini on March 9, 2012 @ 13:23:58 PDT

 


Georgia Bulldogs offensive tackle Cordy Glenn is a mountain of a man but has the athleticism to kick inside for whichever team selects him in the 2012 NFL Draft

Cordy Glenn, OL, Georgia
Versatile, athletic big man

Strengths

  • Long arms (35 3/7 inches)
  • Massive size (6-foot-5, 345 pounds)
  • Positional versatility - can play guard in a power-blocking scheme or right tackle
  • Athletic for a big man
  • Mirrors defenders well
  • Cognizant of stunts and blitzes
  • Started four games at left tackle in 2009
  • Durable - never missed a start (50) at Georgia
  • Powerful - has a few highlight pancake blocks to his resume but does a great job of sealing the defender
  • Quick to the second level

Weaknesses

  • Could stand to lose a few pounds
  • May struggle with speed rushers if he plays tackle
  • Tends to play too upright as a run blocker
  • Better pass protector than run blocker - needs to even out his game
  • Balance can be an issue at times

Expected draft placement

Glenn probably will come off the board in the late first round. The Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 24) desperately need to improve their offensive line. It is conceivable Glenn goes as high as No. 13, and the New York Giants may consider him with the 32nd pick. The San Diego Chargers (No. 18) and Cincinnati Bengals (No. 17, No. 21) are also in the mix.
