Add to that Glenn's potential to play 3 of the 5 positions on the line and I think it's real wise considering Andre Smith may not be re-signed next offseason.
Can I ask your FA plan leading up to the draft? Just to get a clearer picture of your draft. Though I suppose it might change considering you already know who is available to you here.
I took Glenn at 17 because 1) DeCastro was off the board and the guards after these two are not quite on the same level IMO and 2) Kirkpatrick, Gilmore, Jenkins and Barron were all available at 17 too I figured at least one would be available. Ideally I would have traded down from 21.
As for my FA plan, it would be to sign Michael Bush, Nicks/Grubbs/Mathis, CB and WR.
