I was initially upset w/this pick & the Henson pick considering the OL names available. But as I read about Glenn, I can see how he might be just as much a risk as Duke Robinson. Plus, a LB can play on teams immediately & O linemen can't do much in that area.
Great point about special teams

Re: Meet Cody Glenn

Don't worry Mr. Ruhskins, I am not planning on quitting my job and becoming a scout or whatever it is you are inferring. Yep, I would have preferred us taking Duke Robinson (OG) instead of Henson (LB) and I do consider the 3rd, 4th and 5th round picks as part of the total grade. I might be wrong and totally offbase and I apologise, but there is no need to add in sniping or sarcastic remarks.

LMAO!!! But it could work he does have above average speed from being a RB so going from sideline to sideline shouldn't be a problem. He could just be there to blitz and rush the passer we did lead the league in blitzing last year I think.

Re: Meet Cody Glenn

Glenn only played one year at LB, I don't think anyone can really judge his potential based on one year of learning a defensive system. He has great athleticism, the question is really whether he can get down the mental part of the defense. I'm not going to complain about this pick until I see what happens. It's a risky pick, but one that has some significant upside if he works out.

Yeah, I'll take back my comment. Being around all the talent on the defensive side of the ball, he will find a mentor and will excel. I have a feeling he may be the new Ade Jimoh.

Man so glad we passed up Duke Robinson for this guy.

Washington Redskins' pick Cody Glenn admits lying about suspension - ESPN

God of all the fifth round picks that could have had a story run on them. What are the odds?

Re: Meet Cody Glenn

Here comes an unblemished Homer argument.

When Vinny talked about this selection, he specifically said he talked with the coach. Chances are the Skins already knew what the real reason is. This goes back to my general argument that we spectators rarely know as much as the FO people do. Even if we think we do.

I was scratching my head as soon as we made this pick. Then I went and read the scouting report and kept scratching my head. Now I'm reading this, and I fear I may scratch a hole in my skull.

You don't want your 5th round pick in the news for the wrong reasons just two days after you pick him. Sheesh.

THE ADE is an honorable man.

(BTW - if we had picked up Duke in the 5th, this might have been one of the best drafts ever. I would have been happy to have picked up Duke at the end of the 1st. I couldn't believe he was still there in the 5th. Does anyone know why he dropped so far so fast?)

They were using the same draft board as the Vinny Cerrato and company. You know the one that had Cody Glen rated ahead of Duke Robinson.

THANK YOU!! I was scared my Petey Jones comment had gone unnoticed.

I thought it was funny. Redskins Draft HQ was at TC Williams.

Then we would have been flooded with the "why the F did we pick up this fat and lazy guy with character issues" or "why did we pass up on Jamon Meredith". It's a lose lose situation with us fans.

This is the reason that they picked this guy.

Re: Meet Cody Glenn

there we go..lets sign Petey Jones at LB.. he is actually in my family... gotta rep for the Titans man!! in all seriousness I thought they reached big time on Glenn.. maybe in the 7th round, but I doubt anyone was really lookin at him in the 5th.
