When Cordy Glenn enrolled at the University of Georgia to play college football for the Bulldogs, he was thrown into the fire almost immediately. Normally freshmen have to wait their turn, but when you're 6-foot-5 and 340 pounds, things sort of just go your way.
Glenn didn't disappoint that first year in Georgia. He played in 13 games, made 10 starts and was named to the College Football News All-Freshman first team list. Not bad, right? It gets better.

According to ProFootballTalk, Glenn has been named the starting left tackle position to Glenn who beat out last years starter, Chris Hairston. Bills head coach Chan Gailey was so impressed that Glenn has taken all of the reps in practice:
"Cordy's got great ability," Gailey said, via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News. "Ability's not the issue. It's just playing time. He needs as much playing time as he can get. I think if he gets playing time he's got a chance to be a really good football player.
Usually rookies in the NFL have to wait their turn before being thrust into a position that carries so much responsibility, but as we've previously established, Cordy Glenn is no ordinary person.
