ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have turned their attention to addressing offensive needs in a big way by selecting mammoth Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday.
Picked 41st overall, the 6-foot-5, 348-pound player has experience playing both guard and tackle, and will be given the chance to fill Buffalo’s immediate need at left tackle. The Bills lack depth at tackle after losing starter Demetress Bell to free agency this offseason.
In four seasons, Glenn appeared in 53 games and set a school record with 50 starts.
Buffalo opened the draft Thursday by selecting South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore with the 10th pick.
The Bills, coming off a 6-10 season, have eight picks left, including a third-rounder, 71st overall.
