Word. And Byrd. Losing either would be a catastrophic loss. We need both. Badly.
I love Cordy Glenn. Great picks Buddy. Looks like we hit the jackpot in round 2c. Finally. After Torrell Troupe and then Aaron Williams as consecutive 2nd round busts (yep, Aaron Williams is a bust. He's bad), we really couldn't afford to miss on another. Glenn is a beast.

He's had surprisingly few rookie moments this year and looks to have all the ingredients to become an outstanding LT for a long time.
Jonathan Martin who the Bills passed up is starting for Miami at right tackle, ironic because in the OT draft debate, Martin was considered a left tackle and some critics had Glenn as nothing more than a right tackle or a guard.
Riley Reiff who many here wanted the Bills to draft, many in the first round, was taken 23rd overall by Detroit and despite the Lions having an average offensive line/tackle situation, is not yet a starter. Reiff's getting lots of playing time as a blocking tight end and has played 53 snaps in the last two weeks so he is contributing. There were many people here who thought of Reiff as the second coming of Bryan Bulaga and so far those people look right.

At this point in their careers, Glenn is so much bigger and stronger than Martin so his ability to anchor is much better. If Martin fills out a bit he'll be fine I think.
Glenn is a good illustration of the special skills needed to be a good tackle in today's NFL.
Although these speed rushers aren't that huge, once they get your feet moving, they will counter and drive you right into the quarterback.
Unless you have the mass to anchor and the wingspan to steer them, it's hard to be successful.

But Urbik looked great. To me he stole the show. Guys has great agility. I was really impressed with the entire oline.
Hairston was a little shaky. And some of the line calls were crazy. Mayock did a good job of breaking down why Cam Wake got a couple free shots. Sorry but slanting the oline away from the opposing D's best end just seems nuts.

I watched the game last night but haven't reviewed it yet to see who did what.
I don't remember Glenn looking bad last night so I'll disagree with you for now.
I will note that Wake was lined up across from Hairston the majority of the snaps.
The Bills also had our running backs cutting Wake numerous plays where he was left uncovered by Hairston.

I agree that Glenn is playing very well for a rookie. I just hope he can keep improving.

You're wrong there (bolded).
There were a lot of people who were saying that Glenn did not have the feet/footwork to play left tackle.
I believe that Mayock was one of them.
Also, if the consensus was that he could play left tackle, what would make such a prospect slide so far in the draft?
Glenn had ZERO character issues and holds the record for most starts by a Georgia Bulldog football player.
Many people had questions about his ability to play left tackle.
Some here had no questions about it at all.

Agreed. Gotta Keep Levitre and Byrd. We don't need anymore holes.
