Cordy Glenn goes off the board to the Bills

After a restless night in the green room, Cordy Glenn decided he had enough of New York.

We’ll find out if Buffalo is more to his liking. Glenn’s extended wait to find out his NFL home ended when the Bills made him the 41st pick of the 2012 Draft.

Glenn played guard and tackle at Georgia and there are differing opinions about which position he will wind up playing in the pros. There are those who think he is athletic enough to make the move to tackle while others think his mauling style and massive size make him a better fit on the interior. The Bills will likely give him every chance to prove he can play left tackle.

General Manager Buddy Nix made no secrets about his desire to get better at the position in the draft. Chris Hairston is currently slotted in as the starter, but Glenn will likely have a chance to beat him out this summer.

    Bills starting LT. Don’t know why people say he can’t play LT, Bogus. Good pick

    The NFL should stop inviting a bunch of players. Just extend an invitation to 5 or 6 sure thing players. Outside the top 10, the rest of the draft is pretty much random

    I think the NFL should invite fewer players to the draft.

    In fact, here are the two:

    -Janoris Jenkins
    -Vontaze Burfict

    We certainly need a bulldozer to start a landslide for the run game. Cordy Glenn was a good, and necessary pick if the Bills want to put together grind-it-out, 80 or 90 yard TD drives. When the Bills face the Patriots, you have to keep Brady off the field, and a good run game the slowly etches away at the clock will do that. Glenn has a real good chance to start in 2012.

    I like it. Now they have solid depth at tackle. Glenn could play right or maybe they shift Hairston to right and put Glenn at left. I like the moves the Bills are making. For the first time in about a decade, they are in a position to draft for depth purposes. As we saw in the 3rd round pick. He probably won’t be a starter any time soon. The Bills can take their time with him and allow him to polish his game for the next level.

    Love this pick… At worst he’s a solid guard forthe next ten years…

    Who misses Demetrius Bell now? Sorry Philly, you’ve been had!

    As a Fins fan , I have to say the best pick so far for the Bills. A solid, versatile pick for O Line. Not glamorous, but a decent player for a decade or so. I am a former UGA Guard and this dude is one of he best ever. Go Dawgs! Good luck to him and the Bills ( but not too much).
