With the No. 41 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills have selected Georgia offensive tackle Cordy Glenn.

Linked to the team throughout the pre-draft process as a potential first-round pick as a left tackle, the 6'6", 345-pound Glenn fell out of the first round due to concerns about his on-field demeanor and surprising lack of physicality given his size. The Bills, however, spent the week leading up to the draft talking up Glenn's size, length and range, saying that they viewed him as a left tackle candidate that could produce there "at a high level" for a long time.

That's exactly where Glenn will start his career in Buffalo - as a left tackle, where he'll push 2011 fourth-round pick Chris Hairston for a starting job that he almost undoubtedly will not be handed. Should he not work out at that position, Glenn was once considered a first-round candidate as a guard, where he spent the bulk of his first three seasons at Georgia. That versatility, plus his hard-to-find physical skill set, make him a good value pick with better upside at this point in the draft.

In two rounds, the Bills have added a potential starting cornerback in Round 1, and now have a potential down-the-line starter at left tackle. We imagine Bills fans are pleased right now. One more pick to go tonight, folks!
