Yes, the same Mike Glennon that just threw three interceptions against Vanderbilt today.
Glennon is far from the perfect quarterback, but he has the best physical tools of any quarterback in this draft besides possibly Tyler Bray. In a class where all the quarterbacks have warts, Glennon presents the most upside.
The first thing to mention with Glennon is that his North Carolina State team is putrid. His receivers drop balls, his line can’t pass block, and the running game only came along later in the season. Despite all this Glennon managed to guide his team to a bowl game.
Well, Glennon brings elite size—he is 6’6"—and elite arm strength to the table. He can easily drive the ball from the opposite hash to outside the numbers to complete the out route that separates NFL stars from NFL starters. He also shows an advanced understanding of a pro-style offense, as Glennon often is forced to make multiple reads and check down. He looks boring moving his team down the field, but it is effective.
The big thing that causes Glennon to turn the ball over is footwork. The fact that his offensive line seldom gives him a clean pocket has caused Glennon to develop bad footwork habits. He will often throw off his back foot or not step into his throws, which explains his inaccuracy at times.
Footwork can be cleaned up though, and a coach like Mike McCoy, who was forced to work with Tim Tebow, will likely find Glennon an easier project. If these two are paired together Kansas City stands its best chance of developing a franchise quarterback.
