During his conference call on Thursday afternoon, NFL Network's Mike Mayock was asked about Cincinnati's offensive guard prospects for next week's NFL draft; specifically if either David DeCastro or Cordy Glenn will be available and which one Mayock liked better.

Q. The Bengals have never taken an offensive guard in the first round. Do you see [David] DeCastro there, or between DeCastro and [Cordy] Glenn, which one do you like better?

MIKE MAYOCK: Two different animals. And DeCastro to be there. A lot of people have pushed him up pretty high at the guard position. I worry a little bit about whether or not how well he's going to handle a big body directly over him. But obviously I really like the kid. Cordy Glenn is very different. He played left tackle and he's massive. He's a right -- I think in the NFL, he's either a right tackle or a guard and he is a massive and very talented player. But they are two different animals. If you are looking for the guy that can pull, kick out and locate, that's DeCastro. If you're looking for a guy that's better in a phone booth, although he has natural ability and feet, but better, longer, bigger. So they are two completely different type of styles. I think a lot of people think that Glenn can actually live on the outside and will have to go inside. And right now, Cincinnati doesn't need a tackle.
