Kendall Wright & Cordy Glenn

I'm a newbie on this site and it's probably presumptuous to submit a FanPost right away. But I wanted to point to a couple prospects who aren't receiving much attention in these parts as possible 1st-round favorites of Buddy Nix.


(1) Kendall Wright, WR

A lot of fans have dismissed Wright because of his size (5'10") and Nix's--and their--desire for a larger WR. But Wright has a number of qualities that should appeal to Buddy:

(a) He's a legitimate deep threat. When you watch him play, Wright obviously possesses explosive speed with pads on. After bringing in Robert Meachem during FA, it's evident that Buddy is looking for a WR who can stretch the defense. Michael Floyd, despite his status as fan favorite, doesn't have the speed to open up a defense over the top.

(b) He has great ability to make catches in traffic, a quality recently emphasized by Buddy. Size is sometimes overrated when it comes to this skill: smaller players like Steve Smith and Victor Cruz can go up and snatch contested passes just about as well as anyone.

(c) Production. Buddy has repeatedly stated that the most important factor in evaluating a prospect is consistent production, and Wright has it over all four years of his college career.

(d) Good character and lack of injury concerns.


(2) Cordy Glenn, OT

Though he played LT in college, Glenn has been labeled by most internet draft gurus as a G or RT. I don't buy this. I'd actually be shocked if Nix took an LT in the first round and chose Reiff or Martin over this guy.

(a) He has great measurables: 6'5", 340+, long arms. Buddy has shown an obvious preference for bigger linemen and for larger players in general. On the flip side, he's shown an obvious reluctance to obtain players who are smaller than the prototype for their position.

(b) He has tremendous physical talent. He's as strong as his size would indicate. He has outstanding quickness for his size. His main flaws are technical issues which can be fixed through teaching. He has so much more pro potential than the other second-tier LT prospects.

(c) Production. Like Wright, he's played well over the course of his entire college career.

(d) Good character and lack of injury concerns.


Both of these prospects have been cast as mid-1st-round draftees, and both would likely be labeled as 'reaches' by members of the media if chosen by the Bills at pick 10. But Buddy has shown that he doesn't care about draft-day games, so I won't be surprised if he selects either player at the Bills' original spot.
