2012 NFL Mock Draft: Cordy Glenn To Bengals, Stephen Hill To Texans In First Round

In SB Nation's NFL draft blog, Mocking the Draft's most recent mock draft, Cordy Glenn and Stephen Hill, both coming from Georgia schools, are taken off the board in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. The first one to go off the board is Georgia Bulldogs guard Cordy Glenn, who is predicted to be selected with the No. 21 overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cordy Glenn | Offensive tackle/guard | Georgia: Cordy Glenn is a talented offensive line prospect and has the versatility to play multiple positions on the line in the NFL, though I think his best fit is at guard. The Bengals need to upgrade the interior of their offensive line.

Glenn would likely contribute immediately at the right guard position for the Bengals, who are looking to solidify the offensive line after losing guards Nate Livings and Mike McGlynn in free agency. With Glenn at right guard, the Bengals could have one of their better offensive lines in recent years.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets wide receiver Stephen Hill isn't predicted to be taken off the board too terribly long after Glenn is. In fact, he's predicted to be selected by the Houston Texans, who defeated the Bengals in the wildcard round of the 2011 playoffs.

Stephen Hill | Wide Receiver | Georgia Tech: Andre Johnson is one of the best wide receivers in the game, but the Texans lack a legitimate threat across from him. Stephen Hill has been phenomenal in the pre-draft process and deserves to sneak into the first round.

Hill has really improved his draft stock this offseason. He could easily be targeted by the Texans, who need a No. 2 receiver to play opposite of Andre Johnson that can eventually take over the No. 1 receiver responsibilities. Since Johnson has had durability issues lately, Hill could find himself as Matt Schaub's top target in the coming season if they decide to select him with their first round pick.
