It’s still not real football for offensive and defensive linemen so truly gauging the progress of second-round pick Cordy Glenn at the left tackle position is not easy to determine. Midway through three weeks of OTA practices however, head coach Chan Gailey sees the big lineman improving his game.
“He’s done a good job. He’s got some things to learn,” said Gailey. ”The speed of this game is so different. So he’s got a lot of learning to do. He’s got physical talent and he’s got ability. He’s got a work ethic that will allow him to get there. He just needs as many reps as he can possibly get between now and the first game of the year.”
Gailey realizes playing offensive tackle against the best pass rushers in football is a challenging transition from college, but sees Glenn as a player capable of successfully traveling that learning curve.
“It takes a lot of hard work,” said Gailey. ”You’ve got to stay healthy. You’ve got to get a bunch of reps. We think Cordy can make that transition, but he’s got to get a lot of reps.”
To this point in OTAs Glenn has taken every rep with the first team offense at left tackle as they try to get him as much exposure to the position, the offense and Buffalo’s top pass rushers.
