The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy reported that former University of Georgia Bulldogs offensive lineman Cordy Glenn visited the Cincinnati Bengals this week. Glenn is considered to be a first-round prospect and this draft class' second-best offensive guard behind Stanford's David DeCastro.

Glenn has been mocked to the Bengals a number of times this offseason heading into the NFL draft. He has played both tackle and guard for the Bulldogs and is a large and powerful mauler when it comes to his blocking style. Cincy Jungle's Joe Goodberry's scouting report on Glenn states that he's likely better suited to play tackle in the NFL than guard, but he could start at either position.

It's unlikely that the Bengals will find themselves in a position to select David DeCastro unless they trade up in the draft. Since they probably won't do that, the first guard they could take a shot at drafting is likely going to be Glenn. With Glenn, they would get a new starting right guard and a line composed of Andrew Whitworth, Travelle Wharton, Kyle Cook, Glenn and Andre Smith could be one of the better Bengals offensive lines since the 2005 season.
