The Buffalo Rumblings Community Mock Draft rolls along, with the No. 23 overall pick coming at you right now...

With the No. 23 overall pick in the BR Community Mock Draft, 'DanRoc' and the Cincinnati Bengals select Georgia offensive guard Cordy Glenn.

"The Bengals find themselves in a unique position in this draft thanks to their two first round picks," says DanRoc. "In the community mock draft, this was even more unique because the two picks were split between two GMs. I knew that whichever player was selected at No. 17 would influence who was picked at 21."

"As 'Buffalo Bird' said when he made his pick, the biggest needs for the Bengals are guard, cornerback and wide receiver," continued DanRoc. "While he managed to pick up possibly a dominant end in Quinton Coples, that also left the roster with just as many weaknesses in the trouble areas as before.

"Fortunately, the teams picking around Cincinnati don't share many of the same needs, which left me with options," said the GM. "When pick No. 20 was finished, I had two players to choose between on my board: Stephon Gilmore and Glenn. I couldn't decide which would fill a need better. When the Lions offered to trade up two spots for an extra fourth rounder, I took a gamble and went with it. I had a feeling the Lions were choosing between those two players and Jonathan Martin. Assuming both Gilmore and Glenn were not taken by the Lions and Browns, I'd know who I'd take at No. 23, and I'd still fill a need with someone I'd have taken at No. 21. Plus, Cincy would have picked up an extra fourth rounder.

"So I made the trade, the Lions grabbed Gilmore, and that leaves me with an excellent consolation prize in Glenn," finishes DanRoc. "Glenn is possibly the most physically dominant lineman in the draft. He is also incredibly versatile, able to play either guard spot and potentially either tackle spot. On the Bengals, he'd be an instant starter to replace Bobbie Williams, and would shore up a line that needs to keep Andy Dalton upright to allow him to develop into a better quarterback."
