As we approach to the NFL draft with less than two weeks remaining, we're seeing an increase of analysis, rankings, coordinated with unchecked anticipation turned giddy happiness. Cincinnati has a list of positions they could address, virtually ever one of them presenting arguments for or against, especially with the projected talent in the first round. Despite some (me) that isn't convinced Cincinnati will select a guard, there's plenty of arguments, most of them justified, for the team to address the position -- especially if Stanford's David DeCastro is available at No. 17.
One player that the Bengals could be interested with is offensive lineman Cordy Glenn. Dan Pompei of the Chicago-Tribute writes of the Georgia offensive lineman:
His best position might be guard, but Glenn has the length and athleticism to play tackle. He has played both positions in college. Glenn has struggled to keep his weight in check, and he doesn't always play with top effort. He struggled early in the 2011 season but finished strong. He was outstanding during Senior Bowl week. Glenn needs to play with better technique more consistently. If he ever puts it all together, he can be a dominator.
Sounds like another Andre Smith, in terms of effort and work ethic.
