    Our look at the Cowboys' offensive line draft targets continues with Georgia's Cordy Glenn. Glenn has started for the Bulldogs since his freshman year, at a variety of positions on the O-line, including 28 at left guard, 18 at left tackle and four at right guard (there was even talk about trying him on the defensive line). Glenn went on to tie a school record with 50 total starts, and finished up his senior year as the team's left tackle. He played well enough to garner multiple first Team All-SEC honors and was elected one of team's offensive captains.

    Glenn is a huge (6'6", 345 pound) man, who obliterates defenders on the run and uses 36-inch arms to engulf rival pass rushers. With his help, Georgia finished third in the SEC with an average of 413 yards of offense per game. Although Glenn appears most natural at guard on tape, the Georgia coaches, liking his size and experience, played him at left tackle last season. Perhaps due to his height--he's tall for a guard--he stayed at tackle in the Senior Bowl, where he acquitted himself very well, in both workouts and the game itself.

    Glenn's positive Senior Bowl showing was followed up by a superb Combine, wherein he peeled off a 4.96 40-yard dash, including a 1.76 10-yard split, both ridiculously fast for a man his size. Moreover, he benched 225 pounds 31 times, a phenomenal total given his arm length. Here is some video of Glenn's footwork at the Combine. Want more? Here's a long selection from the LSU game; his work against Boise State; and Michigan State, for good measure.

    So, the Georgia man-mountain is an NFL tackle, yes? Not so fast; the downside is that Glenn's lack of an explosive first step (exemplified by a 23.5-inch vertical jump, the third-worst Combine mark), which would cause him to struggle mightily against NFL edge rushers, almost certainly relegates him to guard at the NFL level. Glenn has the feet to succeed at guard; while he's no dancing bear, he exhibits decent footwork, and the mobility to get to the second level to seal off defenders.
