North Carolina State’s Mike Glennon Could Be Second QB Taken In 2013 NFL Draft


There is little doubt that West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith is the favorite to become the first signal-caller selected in the 2013 NFL Draft and potentially the first-overall pick when Commissioner Goodell takes the podium — not to mention the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy.

After Smith, there are a handful of quarterbacks who could earn the honor of being the second quarterback off the board.

USC Trojan Matt Barkley, Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson and Tennessee’s Tyler Bray are among the names that have been thrown into the discussion. While any of those signal-callers would be a good choice, there is another name that is starting to be discussed in league circles as the potential second QB off the board.

That guyis North Carolina State’s Mike Glennon.

Glennon has incredible size and a strong arm that can spin the ball with the necessary velocity to make all of the NFL throws. Glennon’s delivery and height allows him to stand in the pocket without the worry of having his passes batted down.

Teams have shown that they will fall in love with a tall, big-armed quarterback and that is exactly what Glennon is.

While he could improve with his downfield accuracy. The potential is there and he could be just the guy that a team near the end of the first-round is looking to add to their roster in the 2013 NFL Draft. Keep an eye out for the young man out of North Carolina State.

    The problem is that he’s immobile and looks far too uneasy when under pressure. He has great physical tools, but all the hype from him was when he was killing it at the Elite 11. It was impressive, but Glennon turns into a different player when the heat is on him.
