As we profiled just how tight the caliber of talent is in the mid-first round of this year’s draft class on the home page of Buffalobills.com, we mentioned OT/G Cordy Glenn, who is the subject of debate by NFL clubs. Some teams see him as a right tackle/guard while others believe he proved in 2011 at Georgia that he has a future at left tackle. Former NFL GM Charley Casserly offered the following on Glenn to Buffalobills.com as far as him projecting to left tackle is concerned.
“There are a lot of guys that play in this league that aren’t as good as him that are playing left tackle,” said Casserly. ”In a perfect world I play him at right tackle. If you want to line him up at left you see what he can do.”
Knowing Buffalo’s need for a left tackle Glenn is considered an option for the Bills at 10, and though there’s debate as to whether or not Glenn is a true left tackle prospect Casserly brings up a very good point as his talents apply to Buffalo.
“A lot of what the Bills did last year offensively that ball got out of there pretty quick,” said Casserly. ”And with that in mind you can play with a left tackle that may not be a premiere one.”
