Orchard Park (WKBW.com) The Bills selected Georgia Offensive Tackle Cordy Glenn in the second round of the NFL draft on Friday night. Below is the transcript of his conference call with reporters at One Bills Drive.
On his reaction to being picked by the Bills:
I am happy. One I get to play left tackle and two Buffalo is one of my favorite teams. I am just happy I get to play football. I know where I am playing at now. It is a big relief.
On why he is excited to play for the Bills:
The coach. I like the coaching staff. I like the offensive line coach (Joe D’Alessandris). I like the way he coaches, so (Buffalo) was definitely a big favorite of mine.
On having to wait until the second round to be drafted:
I wish I could have got off early but I am just happy to be picked right now. It is a big honor.
On his development as a left tackle:
I would just say that I came out to a slower start. And then I got better as the season went on as I got more comfortable out there. I still do not think I have played my best game out there.
On if he was afraid of being drafted by a team who did not view him as a tackle:
I think with my athletic ability it would be hard for a team to pass that up.
On how pleased he is that the Bills view him as a left tackle:
I am extremely pleased and ready to start just focusing on football again. Get off of this process that is finally over. I am excited about it.
On if the Bills told him during meetings that they viewed him as a left tackle:
They thought I could play tackle but I am just going to go in there and try out the vibe. I’ll help out at whatever position they need me to play, honestly.
On the Bills having a need at left tackle:
It is (exciting). That is the whole point. I am excited to go out there and play. I am ready for it.
On if he was at home:
Yeah, I am at home.
On if he felt that he might be drafted earlier:
Yeah, I did actually. But things happen for a reason. I am just happy to be with the Bills.
On if it was a big disappointment he was not drafted earlier:
I would not say that. I am pretty happy with the team I got picked by.
On his reaction when the phone rang and it was the Bills:
Extremely happy. I talked to Chan (Gailey) first. I talked to Buddy (Nix). Very happy. Probably the happiest moment of my life.
On what he brings to the table aside from his size:
Beside my size: versatility, quickness, strength power, everything the whole nine.
