Senior Bowl week is one of the most grueling and demanding job interviews on the planet, but an impressive week of work can improve your draft stock and help you cash in on all of the hardwork you have put in to your craft.

With the news we have learned over the past few days that West Virginia’s Geno Smith and Matt Barkley of USC will not be participating in the 2013 Senior Bowl, North Carolina State Wolrpack quarterback Mike Glennon has a golden opportunity to steal the show in Mobile, Alabama.

There is buzz that Glennon could shoot up draft boards much like Ryan Tannehill just a year ago and he will have every opportunity to state his case at the Senior Bowl.

Glennon is one of the more intriguing prospects in the 2013 draft class because of his big frame and live arm. At 6-foot-6, 232-pounds, Glennon has the prototypical size that NFL scouts look for. He is one of the better true pocket passers in the draft class and he is not afraid to stand tall and deliver he downfield throws.

An undervalued quality that Glennon has is his willingness to study the film. Glennon is a student of the game and always takes the extra step to prepare.

Many are concerned over Glennon’s lack of college production, but he still managed to put up 4,031 yards and 31 touchdowns on the season despite lacking an elite supporting cast.

A big knock on Glennon’s game is his decision making at times, which led to 17 interceptions on the season. Glennon has to shoulder some of the blame, however, you can’t ignore the revolving door the Wolfpack had at offensive line because of a handful of injuries.

When you put it all together, Glennon has the makings of a NFL quarterback. In what is considered a “weak quarterback class,” Glennon can establish himself as the cream of the crop if he puts together a solid performance in front of the NFL scouts in Mobile.
