After watching the Senior Bowl I came away impressed by Cordy Glenn. He showed some really good movement skills and feet in pass protection and managed to hold up at LT in many reps.

What are people's opinions of Glenn?

Can Cordy Glenn play RT in the NFL?

Is he Shawn Andrews?

I think Glenn is going to be a very good player! He'll probably come in and be a solid starter straight away.

Do you think he can play RT?

I would put him at guard and only play him at RT if injuries dictated that it's best for the team....but long term he is an OG all the way IMO. That is his best position to become a pro bowl caliber blocker. He wouldn't be as good on the outside as he would inside.

I still have some serious doubts about Glenn. Even at 346lbs., he would be one of the biggest linemen in the NFL and I think you can expect him to gain possibly another 20lbs.

Sure, he looked excellent in the drills at the Senior Bowl but how long can he play at that level without being in top shape. Is he just a 3 quarter player who will have nothing left when the 4th quarter arrives.

It is my experience that linemen like Glenn fall on draft day because pro GM's will question his commitment to stay in shape. People see his size and think that it is solid but there are very few OL in the NFL playing solid football at that weight.

He reminds me of another Georgia All-American OLman, Max Jean-Gillis
6'3", 356 who was highly touted till draft day when he fell to round 4 and has been nothing but a backup his whole career.

You'd be amazed at how many large college linemen flop because they have zero commitment to staying in shape.

He reminds me of Shawn Andrews.

Max Jean-Gilles was always fat. I thought that like Marcus Cannon last season Glenn carried 350lbs. about as well as a man could.

I think Glenn has a worse chance of playing outside in the NFL than Osemele, and both are best suited to playing guard.

Glenn can engulf people, but he's a waist bender, his pad level is terrible, and he really lacks the range you need to protect the edge in the NFL.

I still don't like the idea of LT, I think speedy pass rushers will tear him up in the NFL. RT/OG is where he should go. If he plays well in the game and tests well at the combine he should be a late 1st round pick.

Underrated or maybe just forgotten by the newer, shinier toys out there. Glenn is a nasty f'n player man...one of my favorites in this draft. Might be a better T than a G in the pros, and might make it as a LT.

I think he's a sleeper option for the Jets at 16. From there he'll take the RT job and the Jets go back to having the best OL in the league.

Definitely sounds like he made the best of the Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, it sounds like putting him at LT is a stretch. However it sounds like he could be fine at OG/OT. However, if you are going to spend a first rounder on him, you probably want a position set for him.

I think he worked his way up to a solid second rounder.

Really, what's the knock on this guy that some coaching can't fix? Not as quick as guys who aren't 340?

Basically, why isn't he a slam dunk first rounder?

OL I would take over Glenn for sure:

Kalil
Konz
DeCastro
Martin

Possibly:

Adams

Maybe:

Reiff

Reminds me of Damien Woody more than he does Shawn Andrews. I can see why Andrews would come up given his size, but Andrews only went 16 because he can be so lackadaisical. Andrews was as good an OL prospect as you can get at any position physically.

Glenn is a first rounder. Probably to the Jets, Steelers or Ravens. And he's a servicable LT, a very good RT and a great guard. He is built like late career Damian Woody.

I think he could rise to the first. I think it really depends on if there is a run on linemen. If we see two tackles and DeCastro by the middle of the first, he will get some looks. Late first round picks are a great way to pick up some line talent. There are a few top teams that would really like some o line talent. I think Pitt looks long and hard at o line.

There are approximately 288 OG's and OT's in the NFL, 14 of them weigh 340lbs or more. That is about 5% of NFL OLmen minus OC's. Of those 14, at least 5 or 6 are in the 6'7"-6'8" range and only 1 is anywhere near an All Pro rating.
Glenn is 6'51/2", 346lbs. He is most likely to play OG at the next level or possibly RT. By NFL standards he is a fat man carrying way too much weight and likely to add 15-20lbs. after he enters the league. He has a 3/10's of 1% chance to be a star.
Personally, I cannot see a team drafting him in round 1 and I can see a career where he is nothing more than a journeyman if he cannot get control of his weight.

Then he's a first...When is there not a run on OL these days?

Couple things:

Why the assumption that he gains weight? Aging? What about the fact that he'd be a professional athlete with all the avenues of training and nutrition open to an athlete?

By NFL standards Haloti Ngata was a fat man carrying too much and was likely to add 15-20 pounds...Vince Wilfork....there's probably more...Look how that turned out.

What do we make of Glenn being listed by Mayock as a top 5 OT in the draft where he was previously an OG.

Does this mean that Mayock sees LT potential in Glenn? I would be suprised if he ranked a RT in the top 5.

The way he carries his weight reminds me of marcus cannon last year. I dont think hes gonna blow up and eat himself out of the league, the only problem with a 340 pound guard is they have a dominating stretch but wear down quickly in their careers.....leonard davis, shawn andrews come to mind.

i love him at guard, and i like that he has the feet to slide out to tackle if needed. full time tackle though, not so much

Versatility iis a huge plus with him.

I wonder what Mayock saw on tape to put him in the tackle group?

Those are listed weights and are all bull ****.

Most NFL players are 10-20lbs heavier than they are listed at.

Jahri Evans is listed at 315lbs and if he is a Lbs under 330lbs. I will personally apologize to him.

I think it would have been his Senior Bowl performance - don't know Mayock has watched much tape yet, he's been too busy with NFL commentary.

Vince Wilfork is listed at 320lbs and if anyone here thinks he plays at that weight then they are kidding themselves.

Big guys can play in the NFL for sure. Marcus Cannon has been brought up in the thread already. He is one of the heaviest listed players in the NFL and I would be confident to say he is probably one of the most athletic offensive linemen around.

Haloti Ngata is probably bordering around 340lbs and plays as either a 5 technique, 3 technique or a nose. He also drops into coverage.

The amount of guys who can do this are slim but that doesn't mean that Glenn can't

National Football Post has Glenn at #9 overall.

9. OG Cordy Glenn: Georgia (6-5, 348)
Had had some struggles in space as a tackle prospect, but in tighter areas where he can get his hands on linemen quickly as a guard he showcases the ability to dominate. Looks like a starting caliber OG early in his NFL career.

Word on the street is that in a mock combine (i dont really know what it is), he ran a 4.90. If he runs anything close to that, i will be amazed. But it would also have to put him into that group with Cannon/Ngata category.

Cordy Glenn had an exceptional combine and to me cemented himself as a top 25 pick.

I think he goes anywhere from the NY Jets at 16 to Pittsburgh at 24.

This guy has the look of Carl Nicks at OG.

I was pretty down on Glenn since the start of this year's draft prospects, calling him just another fat guy who cannot play hard for 4 quarters and refuses to work hard to get into shape.

I have stuck to this theme right up to the start of the combine but I'm beginning to have second thoughts after his combine performance. Till now, I thought he was nothing but a second rounder but I'm now calling him a sure fire 1st round OG. I've completely changed my mind on him and think he could be an outstanding OG at the next level. RT is an outside possibility but he'll be a star at OG.

I like Glenn a lot as a RT or Guard. I wouldn't mind the Lions grabbing him if/when DeCastro is off the board.

There is good interior OL talent at the top with DeCastro, Glenn, and Konz all possibly being 1st round guys.

I thought Glenn has looked great all year. He isn't put together as solid as Kalil or Tyron Smith but the guy has great feet, played very well all year, had a great Senior Bowl week, and had one of the best combine performances of anybody regardless of position. Call me crazy but this guy will be a LT in the pros and good one too. He is currently my #3 T behind Rieff, but not by much.

I am not totally convinced that Glenn cannot play LT in the NFL like Jason Peters.

Glenn handles Sam Montgomery of LSU pretty well and he looks like a 1st round pick next season.

Glenn stood up real well to Coples all week. He's my #2 OT rght now behind Kalil. He could go to CAR at 9, BUF at 10 or ARI at 13. It's kind of a long shot but those teams need OL help.
