"2012 NFL Draft prospect, Cordy Glenn"Cordy Glenn


Ht. 6-5 Wt. 346

Pass Blocking:  Cordy Glenn is a massive human being with vines for arms (almost 85” wingspan).  Overly powerful in both the lower and upper body.  He shuffles well to the outside and has enough quickness to beat speed to the edge.  Uses his hands well to keep defenders from his chest.  When Glenn gets his hands on the defender it’s generally over for them, sticky through contact.  Good quickness for his size with solid lateral agility.  Powerful anchor but relies a little too much on it.  He does get overextended at times trying to get to the edge which gets him beat to the inside.  He is a waist bender that will need some work on his range.  Probably a RT or G in the NFL because of the lack of elite range to handle the speed at LT.

Run Blocking:  Ideal blocker in a power run scheme.  Excellent coil as he generates a ton of power through his lower body.  He has enough range to be effective pulling and getting into the second level.  He breaks down pretty well on contact in the open field for his size.  He plays a little high and has a tendency to lose leverage into contact.  He gets a little lazy through contact and would like to see him drive his defenders out of the play more often.

Technique:  Glenn is pushing 350 pounds, so his tendency to bend at the waist could be overlooked as he generally makes up for it with his power.  He shows solid footwork and moves well laterally to get the edge against speed.

Athleticism/Strength:  Good athlete for his size.  His natural strength and long arms make up for a lot of what he lacks athletically.  He doesn’t possess elite range on the edge but good enough to be an effective RT in the league.  His strength is other-worldly.

Bottom Line:  Glenn probably projects better as a guard but he can definitely play RT in the NFL.  He can be dominant at the point of attack in confined areas but will struggle on an island against elite speed.  He progressively got more comfortable as the year wore on at LT.  Started out really rough against Boise St and finished strong with a very good showing at the Senior Bowl.  At worst, he could be a starting guard for the next decade who you could play at tackle if need be.  I think he’s a RT, and a very good one, in the league day one.
