It was no secret the Bills, who allowed the fewest sacks in the NFL (23) in 2011, needed a left tackle out of this draft after Demetress Bell signed with the Eagles. Despite what GM Buddy Nix has said about his confidence in Chris Hairston, depth was necessary for Ryan Fitzpatrick’s blind side, and Buffalo felt fortunate that Cordy Glenn fell to the 41st pick. Glenn played some guard in Georgia and has the size to play inside at 6-5 3/4 and 345 pounds, but he will play left tackle for Buffalo. If Glenn wins the starting job, he will be asked to help the line pick up where it left off last season. “He’s got good feet. … You’ve got a long way to run around him,” Nix told reporters. While Glenn performed well at the Senior Bowl, the other tackle the Bills drafted slipped to the fourth round because of a poor performance in Mobile, Nix explained, referring to Zebrie Sanders, who likely will be the backup right tackle.
