Glenn was an impressive player at Georgia, starting three years at left guard, and his senior season at left tackle. He had great film against SEC pass rushers and he proved he actually can play tackle at the Senior Bowl, standing up to the likes of Quinton Coples and Melvin Ingram in South practices. Glenn further helped his stock with an outstanding combine where he ran great and measured with 35+ inch arms. This player was nitpicked as the draft approached and some scouts questioned his tenacity and motor. Glenn is talked up by the coaching staff as a Marcus McNeill-type of left tackle, and that's a fair comparison. Like McNeill, Glenn is a mauling run blocker and an average pass protector. The Bills will start Glenn right away at left tackle, and it's arguable that they got first-round value with their selection. As with the Vikings, simply adding a left tackle will improve the line from terrible to average, with the chance for the line to be very good down the road. In the near term this is likely a boost to the fantasy fortunes of Ryan Fitzpatrick and C.J. Spiller.
