Latest mock goes OT for Bills

Another mock draft with less than a week until the draft goes offensive tackle for Buffalo.

Rotoworld.com’s latest edition has Buffalo taking Georgia OT Cordy Glenn. Here’s what they wrote.

10. Buffalo Bills — Georgia OT Cordy Glenn

Glenn was one of the first players the Bills hosted for a pre-draft visit. While that isn’t necessarily a surefire indication of interest, Glenn’s game is eerily similar to former Buddy Nix pick Marcus McNeill’s. Both are athletic, physically dominant “waist benders” whose technique is criticized despite exceptional down-to-down play. Glenn would be an upgrade on Erik Pears at right tackle initially, and perhaps move to the left side if Chris Hairston doesn’t markedly improve in camp.

While the prospect chosen isn’t all that unusual (Glenn has been seen in the 10-20 range) the explanation doesn’t really jive. Pears was signed to three-year extension for a reason, to start at right tackle. You don’t draft an offensive tackle 10th overall to play on the right side. If they like Glenn this much he’s going to be lined up at left tackle. Whether they do like him this much is the burning question that likely won’t be answered until Thursday night.
