Cordy played real well in 13 games at LT, I think he might be the best drafted OL value the Bills ever got. Discuss.

Jason Peters may quibble with that thread title, just a bit.  Or House Ballard.

Glenn reminds me a lot of a young Larry Allen.

I posted a combine link thinking from a draft standpoint for us but yes outside of the draft Peters was great, the short amount of time he was here.

Yeah, as stated by others, Glenn probably isn't an epic steal.  Good player.  I think he will feel the wrath of Bills fans if they keep him at LT though.

Your head way out over your skis on that one.

House Ballard in the 11th round is the biggest draft steal.  Hull and Peters are the best FAs.

Kent wasn't drafted by Buffalo, he played in the USFL for several seasons (83-85) & then came to Buffalo.

Signed as an Undrafted Free agent. He rode in the equipment van from the airport the same day the Bills picked Kelly up in a limo.
I know it is an old story but classic. Kind of symbolic of the two being joined together for the next decade and their different styles

Glenn has a lot to prove to be considered the best value ever picked by the Bills at Oline. I am a huge Glenn fan and was on record advocating him playing LT last offseason pre-draft. he did a good job his first year and if he builds and grows into the position we can discuss it more in a few years....

caMissed the drafted part. Yet he's got a long way to go to beat out Joe D, reggie, and Billy Shaw for value. Heck if he can deliver Jonas Jennings performance, without injuries, we should be happy.

Given bills recent draft history, it's a very low bar

Have all made the pro bowl at least once, and some many many times. Glenn isn't at their level yet.

Peter's wasn't drafted.  He was a rookie free agent tight end.

That's because the guy changed the title of the thread after he realized how stupid it was.

Glenn had an up-and-down rookie season. He didn't play "real well" outside of his first few games.
