Scouting Report
In a relatively weak quarterback class, Glennon has been discussed as possibly one of the first signal-callers that will be taken in the draft. Glennon is strictly a pocket passer and uses his height to scan defenses and find open receivers. He led the ACC and ranked ninth in the FBS with 4,031 yards his senior year while tossing 31 touchdowns for the second straight season as North Carolina State finished 7-6. His arm strength is an asset, but his accuracy has come into question after he completed a career-low 58.5 percent of his passes in 2012. He threw 17 interceptions - tied for the most in the FBS - leading to a 130.7 passer efficiency rating that ranked just 65th in the nation. Concerns also have risen about Glennon's ability to escape a collapsing pocket due to his limited mobility, and he proved to be among the least athletic quarterbacks at the combine with poor numbers in the agility drills. He wasn't a threat to run in college and has been criticized for not standing strong in the pocket in the face of a blitz. With quicker defenders in the NFL, Glennon will need to use his football IQ to avoid rushes and find open receivers. Despite his deficiencies, Glennon possesses enough pocket-passer skills to be considered a possible first-round pick, though he could be more destined for early in the second round.
