2012 NFL Draft: Cordy Glenn Hopes Versatility Pays Off

Cordy Glenn considered leaving Georgia a year early for the NFL Draft but later decided to return to the Bulldogs for the 2011 season. Upon his return, Glenn spent his senior season lining up at left tackle for the Bulldogs after playing guard earlier in his career. The move has helped Glenn improve his stock to where he is hopeful of hearing his name called in the first-round of tonight's NFL Draft.

"I think I'm pretty versatile at both of them," Glenn said. "Honestly, I think that's good for me to be able to play both of them and be comfortable and confident at both of them."

Georgia head coach Mark Richt still thinks Glenn could end up playing guard in the NFL but thinks his senior season spent at left tackle helped showcase his versatility.

"I'm always thankful when those guys come back and it looks like they improved their draft status," Georgia coach Mark Richt said this week. "Most of them do. It's rare that you don't improve your status, but we talked to Cordy about playing tackle. I think the fact that he played tackle in our league let people see his versatility. I think some still see him as a guard, but a lot of people know he can play that tackle position."

Glenn is projected as a first-round selection by many mock drafts and SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber has him headed to Cincinnati as the 21st pick. ead more mock draft analysis at Mocking the Draft. For more on the Georgia Bulldogs, visit Dawg Sports.
