In the Marvin Lewis era, the Bengals have loved to draft players out of the University of Georgia. Their most recent Bulldog product, A.J. Green, was a fantastic 2011 addition as he made the Pro Bowl in his rookie year, and they drafted Green's teammate a few rounds later in Clint Boling. There is another player out of Georgia that could land with the Bengals in the first round again this year in offensive lineman Cordy Glenn.

Joe Reedy from The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Paul Alexander was in attendance at Glenn's Pro Day workout yesterday on Georgia's campus. According to Reedy, Alexander was able to get an up close look at Glenn during his workout, as he helped conduct the lineman drills. Glenn is projected by most draftniks to be a late first round pick, and likely will be available when the Bengals pick at either No.17 or No.21.

Opinions are mixed on Glenn as a pro prospect. He had a tremendous Combine workout, where he displayed his outstanding athleticism coupled with his imposing size. He was shuffled along the Bulldogs' line throughout his college career, but was primarily a left tackle during his senior year. Some believe that he's a better fit as a tackle at the NFL level, given his size and athleticism, while others believe that his 340-pound frame is better suited inside at guard. One thing is certain, he's the versatile type of lineman that the Bengals coaches love.

The Bengals drafting Glenn will depend on if they pursue a guard in free agency and even if they do land one, it's possible that they still draft him or David DeCastro with both guard spots being open in 2012. Though this is common practice for coaches to attend and participate in a prospect's Pro Day, it is important to note that the Bengals have been linked to Glenn for months. He's a boom or bust prospect, so it will be interesting to see if they take a shot on a player like Glenn with an extra pick in the first round at their disposal.
