Sammy Watkins, Ronald Darby, and Richie Incognito were all named to Pro Football Focus’ Top 101 players of 2015. One player who did not make the list for the Buffalo Bills was left tackle Cordy Glenn.
Despite finishing the 2015 season as Pro Football Focus’ 10th rated tackle, Glenn didn’t make the cut. PFF addressed their reasoning for keeping Glenn off the list while also mentioning why Glenn could have been included on the list in their article, 10 big name players that missed PFF’s Top 101 of 2015.
6. Cordy Glenn, LT, Buffalo Bills
Argument for Top 101 inclusion:
Cordy Glenn allowed just two sacks all season, despite pass-blocking for a quarterback that holds the ball (on average) longer than any other QB in the league (3.22 seconds per dropback). He had a perfect game in pass protection against the Houston Texans, making a total of five games over the season in which he allowed no pressure at all and was only responsible for his quarterback being knocked down four times in total.
Why he isn’t in the Top 101:
Glenn’s run-blocking was average at best, and disastrous in a couple of games over the season. He allowed 27 total pressures, and his pass-blocking efficiency was only good enough for 11th overall among tackles, behind players like Taylor Lewan and Austin Howard.
Glenn was close to making the cut in 2015, and if he improves his run-blocking he’ll have a good shot of being named to the PFF’s Top 101 players of 2016.
