The Bills have moved up the first round of this year's National Football League draft by sending Cordy Glenn and the No. 21 pick to the Bengals in exchange for the No. 12 choice, The MMQB's Albert Breer reports. The network reports the Bills and Bengals are swapping first-round picks, moving Buffalo up to #12. The team had been previously rumored to have interest in USC's Sam Darnold, who is widely believed to be the first overall pick in this year's draft.

Since signing a big extension with the Bills in 2016, Glenn has been limited with many injuries. He has been the Bills' starter at left tackle for six seasons since they picked him in the 2012 draft. The rookie second-round pick out of Temple was expected to compete for the starting job at right tackle.

The Bills set themselves up to possibly get their franchise quarterback in the draft.

Glenn is due a $2 million roster bonus this week and, according to Over The Cap, he will carry a cap hit of $11.25 million in 2018, something the Bills do not want to be tied to.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have acquired a talented offensive lineman that can stabilize the left side of the offensive line on Pro Bowl quarterback Andy Dalton's blind side. The Bengals send the Bills the 12th overall pick. He played just five games last season because of foot and ankle issues and ended up needing surgery. Adding one or more of their second- or third-round picks to the deal could push Buffalo higher in the order.

It was discussed over the weekend how the Indianapolis Colts have a potential new trade partner in the Buffalo Bills during the 2018 NFL Draft after they traded quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns. He missed five games and played a career-low 657 snaps in 2016.
