On the the Chargers pick:

Cordy Glenn, T/G, Georgia
Height: 6' 5", Weight: 345 lbs.

From PhinPhan910:

I know that most San Diego fans really want San Diego to get a pass rusher. That is a need that the team has to address. Nick Perry would be great in this spot, but the thing is that a lineman like Glenn doesn't always come along, especially at 18th overall. There are enough 2nd and 3rd round talents (Shea Mcclellin, Vinny Curry) that can contribute to the pass rush. The offensive line for this team was a big problem last year. A.J. Smith has said that the offensive line is the highest priority for the team. Glenn can play multiple positions and can either immediately start at LG or give some serious competition at RT. Overall, this pick has a good value and it fills a need for this team.

From Walter Football:

Projected Round (2012): 1-2.
3/6/12: After a rough first day at the Senior Bowl, Glenn played very well in the remaining practices and in the actual game. At the Combine, he showed off excellent speed with a surprisingly fast 40 time for such a large man. His only real flaw is his feet, but he has the potential to improve in the NFL. Some teams will consider keeping him at tackle in the NFL.

As a senior, Glenn was a starter at left tackle. In many games in 2011, Glenn was dominant. He has the power, quick feet and long arms to make him a balanced blocker. Glenn had no problem opening holes in the ground game, and generally was a good pass protector.

In the first contest of the year, the senior had a disaster of a game. Boise State's Shea McClellin and the rest of the Broncos defensive line had their way with Glenn as he allowed multiple hits on the quarterback. Glenn gave up a few sacks, plus he was flagged multiple times.

Glenn battled against South Carolina, Florida and LSU. He got beat on some plays and also had a good share of wins. In the NFL, Glenn may be best as a guard in a power-man blocking scheme. He could be a future Pro Bowler on the inside.

8/20/11: Cordy Glenn broke into the starting lineup as a freshman in 2008 with 10 starts. In 2009, he started nine games between right and left guard. Glenn also started four games at left tackle due to injuries along the Georgia offensive line. Last year, he found a home and started 13 games at left guard. Glenn is a powerful run blocker who moves well and is solid pass protector. He is a massive linemen qho would fit well in a power man blocking scheme.

The Chicago Bears are on the clock.
