NFL Draft 2012: Cordy Glenn, Orson Charles Considered Top-5 At Their Positions Heading Into The Draft

NFL.com's Mike Mayock recently listed the top five players at each position group heading into the 2012 NFL Draft. Two of those players are former Georgia Bulldogs. They are tight end Orson Charles and offensive tackle Cordy Glenn.

Mayock lists Charles as this year's draft class' top tight end above Stanford's Coby Fleener, Clemson's Dwayne Allen, LSU's Deangelo Peterson and Louisiana-Lafayette's Ladarius Green. Many mock drafts have Charles being taken off the board in the second round by the Broncos or Bears.

Glenn, who was ranked earlier as this draft class' second-ranked offensive guard after Stanford's David DeCastro, is now listed as the fifth-ranked offensive tackle. He's behind USC's Matt Kalil, Iowa's Riley Reiff, Stanford's Jonathan Martin and Ohio State's Mike Adams. Mock drafts that list Glenn as a guard have him taken as high as No. 21 in the first round by the Bengals, but if he enters as a tackle, his draft stock could drop somewhat.
