Weaknesses: Will have a few errant passes each game that just seem to happen for no reason. He plays extremely conservative against good defenses, and will check down on plays where a deeper route may have been open. At times he will mis-read a zone defense, and appears to just forget when a route should be coming open against a specific alignment. Against the blitz he will routinely throw off his back foot, and will not step into his throws. It effects his velocity on the throws, and accuracy. He will take the shots in the pocket, but will not put his body second to make a perfect throw. He needs to work on becoming more consistent with moving the safety with his eyes. On certain routes, he will stare down his #1 read, and then force a pass regardless of coverage.
Although NC State ran plenty of I-formation looks, he didnít sell the playaction very well on a consistent basis, and at times just seemed to go through the motions. His ball placement is just average in man to man situations. Seems to be a space thrower. Iíd like to see him do a little better job of leading a receiver and throwing away from the defender consistently. He has a habit of getting stripped in the pocket when taking a sack. He will test his luck and throw back across the field at times. Was nearly intercepted on his game winning drive against the Seminoles because of this.
He sounds like a guy I would take a chance on if I had a middle-late first round pick and a veteran QB (like the Chiefs had in 2005 with Green and the potential to draft Rodgers). I wouldn't put Glennon anywhere CLOSE to the starting lineup in his rookie year.
If this were 2011 and the Chiefs drafted him in the 2nd round, I would put him 3rd on the depth chart behind Cassel and Quinn/Stanzi. Some time on the bench is exactly what he needs if he has any hopes at being a great starting QB.
