Gridiron Gab 2012 NFL Draft Scouting Profile: Georgia OG Cordy Glenn


TRIANGLE NUMBERS: 6-5, 348, 5.2


National Football Post:

A thick lineman who isn’t a real natural bender sitting into his stance as an OT. Struggles to keep his base down, doubles over at the waist and pops upright initially off the ball in the run game. Struggles to create leverage for himself consistently at the point. However, is so strong, can work his legs through contact and create a push. Is pretty rangy when asked to pull and get out to the second level for his size and exhibits some natural body control and can breakdown on contact. But again, his pad level gets high and he simply just engulfs at the point, doesn’t drive his legs or the defender through contact. Displays above-average body control when engaged and despite lacking ideal awareness and routinely getting off the ball late, he has the length and power to get his hands into defenders and seal/turn them from the play in the run game.

Displays good initial quickness in pass protection and is natrual when asked to shuffle and slide. Again, bends at the waist, but keeps his hands up protecting his chest and maximizing his length into contact. Demonstrates the lateral ability to slide his feet cleanly and keep the inside of the pocket clean. But, he does get upright and overextended with his footwork, relying on his length and natural power to anchor. Will struggle with balance through contact and doesn’t have elite range in the pass game, but plays well in tight areas and when he gets his hands on you it is tough to disengage from.

Impression: Had had some struggles in space as a tackle prospect, but in tighter areas where he can get his hands on linemen quickly as a guard he showcases the ability to dominate. Looks like a starting caliber OG early in his NFL career

Mocking The Draft:

Agility: Cordy Glenn is a relatively fluid athlete. He moves very well laterally and displayed quick feet in pass protection this season. However, when in space against pass rushers, Glenn struggles. He also doesn’t have a tremendous amount of range.

Movement: Balance is a big issue with Glenn. He bends at the waist far too much which causes him to lose leverage. He doesn’t have a very natural stance as a tackle. In the running game, Glenn tends to be a bit upright as well instead of taking advantage of his strength.
