With the 21st pick in the 2012 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, Jason Garrison selected for the Cincinnati Bengals, who earned their second first-round pick by finishing the 2011 season with a 9-7 record, which was good enough to get them into the playoffs.
With the No. 21 overall pick in the 2012 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, The Cincinnati Bengals select...
Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia
The Bengals addressed the cornerback position with their No. 17 overall pick in this mock draft by selecting Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick. They still need to address the guard position though and with the selection of Cordy Glenn, they could set themselves up with a right guard that is a major upgrade over Mike McGlynn and could give the Bengals one of the better offensive lines that they've had in years.
With the signing of Travelle Wharton, who will start at left guard, the addition of this 6-foot-5, 345-pound man monster at right guard would give the Bengals a one of the better offensive lines since 2005. Glenn also has the versatility to play tackle if he is needed to.
While I would rather see the Bengals grab David DeCastro with one of their two first-round picks, because I think he's a better overall prospect, Glenn is a first-round talent and could start for the Bengals from day one. In my opinion, with the addition of Kirkpatrick and Glenn in the first round, the Bengals would have a pretty successful early draft.
Cordy Glenn Highlights:
Joe Goodberry's Instant Analysis:
The Bengals really didn't have too many options here. It probably came down to Glenn, Doug Martin and Stephen Hill. I'm not the biggest fan of Glenn if the plan is to play him at guard. I didn't see the "killer instinct" it takes to be a dominant guard. Glenn doesn't play with great leverage and bend, that could hurt him against smaller defensive tackles. Glenn has started pretty much his entire collegiate career at Georgia and still has many technical issues in his game. Even though his testing numbers say otherwise, I don't see Glenn's potential being very high. I would've drafted Doug Martin here. Especially because I think Clint Boling can start.
