I figured we may as well open this can of... whatever it is, sooner rather than later. A huge number of mocks have Cordy Glenn to go our way in the draft. What does everyone think about him? Obviously there is no questioning his athletic ability. He can play both guard and tackle, and have done so with great success. That said, I have some questions towards his technique. He does not have elite pass-protection skills, but he sure would open up holes in the running game. I also doubt his zone-blocking scheme understanding, although I have only a couple of games of footage with him so it would not be fair to throw him completely under the buss for this one. Anyways, discuss away.

Cordy Gleen is exactly what we need. We've got to get serious about upgrading the O-line to get the running game back and to protect Ben. This is the player I want with our first
pick.

i like him but im not sure hes the answer...might prefer konz or osemele as an interior lineman.

wouldnt hate it, but he makes me nervous too just cause hes a solid 350 pounds, there not many players that play at that weight at a high level

I'm hoping Konz declares so we can take him #1 this means that when pouncey gets hurt in week 2 we will have a center that can ball .If by some miracle pouncey can stay healthy our O-LINE would be sweet. Konz kinda looks like Alan Faneca in his college highlights

Konz would be a great pick, but I doubt he'll be available. Cordy Glenn might be a bit overated and could end up to be more of a 3rd round type of player. I need to see more of him to really have a valid opinion though. Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State is currently a pretty probable pick from a need/value/availability standpoint.

There's a couple NT prospects who could wind up being the Steelers 1st round pick. Keep an eye on Alameda Ta'amu, DT/NT, 6-3, 335, Washington.

id love taamu in the second, but hes not a first round type of NT imo, poe would be more in that realm just with through the roof potential but i kinda think hes the first DT taken anyway

i have glenn pegged somewhere between andre smith as a guard prospect (could be amazing, shawne andrews-like), could be solid like a bigger justin blalock just a solid player, or he could fall like duke robinson...gotta see how he works out, much more of a higher motor player than robinson and lighter on his feet but we'll see

People say that Cordy is quick for a big man but i have yet to see the foot speed to peg him as quick.I watched a ton of tape on Glenn.Sean Kugler love huge linemen they might take him 1st if he is available .Hopefully they trade up for Decastro.Can't we just clone the pouncey bros and play them all next year

I'm quite sure DeCastro is going to end up far out of reach for trading up.

DeCastro most likely is going Top 10....

Given what we have seen the last two years in MP injuries, that would be an awesome G/C combination. I will watch the evaluations/games/draft shows with interest. You never know which players pan out and don't. I don't like to take too much of a risk with the #1. I like it to be solid. I taped the East/West game today and haven't watched it yet.

I have to admit that this is a great idea.

This dude is getting a ton of coverage at the senior bowl this week. The guys on Sirius can't stop talking about him. Bouchette tweeted today that he could be a Steelers pick

I got the two all star games taped and from what I saw of the senior bowl game, Glenn played well. I want to go back and watch some more, but how can you go wrong picking up a solid O line prospect in first?

I have not seen Senior Bowl yet, but I still have my doubts about him. Especially in terms of his overall understanding of the game, but we'll see. I would not be mad about the pick or anything but I would still much rather have Konz.
