Glenn runs unofficial 4.96 40-yard dash

Posted on: February 25, 2012 10:00 am

Georgia’s Cordy Glenn weighed in as one of the largest offensive line prospects at the Combine, tipping the scale at 345 pounds. And after his 40-yard dash, he might also be considered one of the most athletic. Glenn ran an unofficial 4.96 in his first 40-yard dash attempt Saturday morning, including a 1.76 yard 10-yard split.

Glenn is expected to participate in every drill this week, already lifting 31 times on the bench, an impressive feat for a player with 36” arms. He played most of his collegiate career inside at guard before moving out to left tackle as a senior in 2011. Scouts question whether or not he can protect the blindside at the next level, but Glenn helped answer some of those concerns with a positive week at the Senior Bowl. If he performs well athletically in drills this week, showing NFL scouts he can play outside in the NFL, Glenn’s draft stock could jump into the top-20 discussion.

Glenn currently ranks as’s No. 2 rated guard.
