2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cordy Glenn, Stephen Hill Headed To NFC West

The Sports Illustrated 2012 NFL Mock Draft shows the Arizona Cardinals taking Cordy Glenn of the Georgia Bulldogs with the 17th overall pick in the draft. Read Don Banks' analysis right here

."As a reminder, we're projecting the Bengals and Cardinals trade places at No. 17 and 13, with the Cardinals picking up an extra draft pick or so (a second?) in exchange for letting Cincy go up and get Trent Richardson. At 17, the Cardinals could still fill their need for an offensive tackle with Glenn or Stanford's Jonathan Martin, or turn their attention to defense and take Alabama 3-4 rush linebacker Courtney Upshaw. But the 6-6, 346-pound Glenn is climbing as the draft approaches, and his blend of size and speed is intriguing, even if Arizona did re-sign veteran tackle Levi Brown."

The offensive lineman is ranked by NFLDraftScout.com as the second best player at his position and the 23rd in the draft.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets wide receiver Stephen Hill is projected to go to the San Francisco 49ers to join a club that was just a few bonehead plays and an overtime away from the Super Bowl last season. Here is what Banks had to say about that projection:

The signing of both Randy Moss and Mario Manningham means the 49ers are no longer desperate at receiver, but imagine if they could land a blazer of a deep threat like Hill, whose 4.3 at the combine made everyone sit up and take notice. Alex Smith got over his hurt feelings and re-signed in San Francisco because he knew what was good for him.
