MOBILE, Ala. — NFL teams interested in drafting Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn will have a decision to make.
Does Glenn belong at left tackle, the position he played last season? Or does it make sense to move him inside to guard, where he spent most of the time as an underclassman?
If what the player thinks matters at all to scouts and general managers, well, just know that Glenn is perfectly fine with whatever comes his way.
“I just want to play,” Glenn said Wednesday following Senior Bowl practice. “I feel like I’m versatile. Everybody can see that I can play multiple positions and contribute in more than one way. I just want to play football, honestly.”
Glenn is massive at 6-foot-5½ and 346 pounds, and with 35-inch arms, he seems fit to play tackle. Looks can be deceiving, however, as he struggled a bit during Wednesday’s session against edge rushers.
Glenn came into Senior Bowl week projected as a mid to late first-round pick with potential to immediately start as a guard in the NFL. A big reason for that is his footwork, which he developed playing basketball and soccer as a kid.
It’s pretty clear that Glenn is wanted by many NFL teams. It’s just a matter of where they’ll want to play him. He’s got the rest of the week to show everyone what he’s made of — not that performing in front of scouts matters more than just proving his worth to himself.
“I don’t know if there is pressure necessarily to perform for them. It’s more for myself, man,” Glenn said. “I really don’t like to lose. I like the competition. It’s been fun this week going up against some of the best in the nation.”
