Now that the 2011 NFL season is one game away from officially being over and the Senior Bowl practices have started, a fairly clear picture of the offseason is beginning to develop. 30 of the 32 teams are focusing on what is happening on the field in Mobile, Alabama and according to multiple scouts, University of Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn has been turning some heads.

According to Mocking The Draft's Dan Kadar, Glenn emerged from the Senior Bowl's weigh-in with the second-longest arms among offensive lineman, measuring in at 35-1/8 inches. Kadar says that arm length is important to scouts when it comes to linemen and arms shorter than 33 inches are typically a red flag.
NFL.com's Mike Mayock is also impressed with Glenn's size and what he's done in practice so far.
Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn impressed me today. He’s a massive kid at 6-5½ and 346. He’s got 35-inch arms, and I thought he hung in there really well during the 1-on-1 drills. I also liked offensive lineman James Brown from Troy. He, too, did well in the 1-on-1 drills.
Some recent mock drafts have had Glenn being selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft but if he continues to impress, he could raise his stock even higher as there are many teams around the league that need help on the offensive line.
