As we get rolling with our 2012 NFC Draft Prospect Profiles series let's turn our attention to an area of the Giants' team that might be in line for an infusion of young talent. That would be the team's much-maligned offensive line.
The subject of today' prospect profile is Georgia guard Cordy Glenn. The mountainous Glenn (6-foot-5, 346 pounds) has been connected to the Giants at the end of the first round in many of the early mock drafts I have been following.
Mocking The Draft considers Glenn the No. 2 ranked offensive guard in this year's draft class. MTD says "It is rare to see such a massive player with good athletic ability."
Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has Glenn ranked No. 13 on his Big Board. Bunting says:
"Had had some struggles in space as a tackle prospect, but in tighter areas where he can get his hands on linemen quickly as a guard he showcases the ability to dominate. Looks like a starting caliber OG early in his NFL career."
ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks him No. 18 on his current Big Board and says "Has spent time at tackle but can dominate at guard, and I'd expect whoever drafts him to ultimately have him blocking inside."
