Now that the first rounds of offseason roster moves have appeared to calm for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there is a little lull until the official start of the 2012 NFL calendar. Yes, fans can sit here and debate offseason moves, but the Steelers record of accomplishment should tell fans to focus on the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft.
There is no doubt that the Steelers will have some holes to address this year whether it is front-line starters or to replenish depth and the special teams. In no particular order Offensive Line, Defensive Line, Linebacker, Running Back, Tight End and Wide Receiver may need to be addressed and by having only seven draft choices (at the moment), the front offices cannot afford to swing and miss. With this reality in mind, over the next few weeks leading up to the NFL Draft, Steelers 101 will look at some potential players that could be a fit in the Black and Gold.
The first prospect on the RADAR, OG Cordy Glenn (Georgia), could definitely fill a need along the offensive line. Glenn is a versatile lineman, who demonstrated position flexibility during his career at Georgia playing both inside at Guard before playing Left Tackle this past season. At the combine, the 6-5, 345 pound mammoth put on a show with his athleticism by posting an unofficial 4.96 40-yard dash and completing 31 reps in the bench-press.
Prior to the combine, he was solidly entrenched as one of the top offensive guards in the country. After that performance, his stock could definitely rise leaving a question on whether or not Glenn will be available when the Steelers hit the clock with the 24th selection. If he is available at that time, it is easy to imagine Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin pulling the trigger on this type of player; especially when you weigh the combination of Steelers needs, his experience and potential position flexibility.Tags: Cordy Glenn, Football, NFL, NFL Draft, Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Steelers
