The Buffalo Bills are thrilled that they landed former Georgia tackle Cordy Glenn in the second round of this past weekends NFL draft. And he’s excited that he’ll get to pay left tackle in Buffalo.
“One, I am happy I get to play left tackle, two Buffalo is one of my favorite teams,” said Glenn. “I am just happy that I get to play football and I know where I am playing it now it is just a big relief.”
Glenn feels like he improved at left tackle as the season went on.
“I think I got better as the season gone on and I got more confidence and comfortable out there,” Glenn said. “I still don’t think I have played my best game yet though.”
“You could see a tremendous amount of improvement every week,” said Bills National Scout Darrell Moody. “He’s got tremendous size, he’s got length and he’s got good foot quickness.”
Moody and the Bills believe Glenn is similar to 2-time pro bowler Marcus McNeil.
“He’s very similar to what Marcus McNeill was when we took him in San Diego,” said Moody. “Our coaches there were able to get that tendency to waist bend out of (McNeill). We’re a firm believer we can get (Glenn) out of that habit.”
Moody points out that he’s got good feet, which is a big plus for any left tackle.
“I think he’s got good feet,” said Moody. “I don’t know that he’s got great feet. I think he’s got good feet and you don’t have to have great feet if you’ve got great length and great size. It’s hard to get around big people.”
“The Senior Bowl really capped it off for us,” said Bills head coach Buddy Nix. ”They played him everywhere down there. That’s where people saw him at guard because he hadn’t played there since 2010. But he was able to hold his own against the best at the Senior Bowl at left tackle. It convinced us.”Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
