Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Ideal height to see over defenses. Accurate on the move, showing the ability to square his shoulders while rolling right and delivering an accurate ball. Very good arm strength. Throws a tight spiral with very good velocity and the confidence to thread the needle against tight coverage. Showed improved recognition of defenses as a senior.

WEAKNESSES: Has just two seasons as a starting quarterback and saw his completion rate drop and interceptions rise last season. Lacks the athleticism to escape pressure and has erratic accuracy when forced to re-set his feet, making him vulnerable to pressure. Highly inconsistent throughout the week of practice and in the Saturday game at the Senior Bowl.

COMPARES TO: Derek Anderson, QB, Panthers -- With only two seasons as a college starter, Glennon has the upside to warrant development and may very well ascend to greater heights than Anderson has. He has a big arm to make all the throws like Anderson. Glennon is a streaky passer and a stationary target in an era in which dual-threat QBs are thriving.

--Dane Brugler

Player Overview

Glennon received scholarship offers from just about every East Coast football program, but spent his first few seasons in the shadow of Russell Wilson.

Wilson elected to transfer in 2011 to Wisconsin and Glennon, who was battling for the No. 1 job, assumed the starting role. He surprised many with his immediate positive results with 3,054 passing yards, 32 total scores and 62.5-percent completions, leading the Wolfpack to eight wins. Though his yardage total spiked as a senior (4,031), Glennon otherwise posted similar numbers (31 touchdowns) and a 58.5 percent completion rate.

Glennon might have been the most talented, but streaky prospect at the Senior Bowl. His highlight reel looks like video of a sure-fire top pick, but he needs to continue to eliminate the mistakes in order to make those highlights a consistent part of his game.
