Well here is NFLDraftCountdown's scouting report on him.

Mike Glennon
Height: 6-6 | Weight: 232 | 40-Time: 5.10

Official Bio

Outstanding height with a large projectable frame
Fantastic arm strength and can make all the throws
Can fit ball into tight spots but also varies speeds
Is able to stretch the field vertically with deep ball
Clean delivery / release and throws a pretty spiral
Used to working under center in a pro style system
Vision to scan the field and go through progressions
Decent touch, timing and accuracy when given time
Able to get rid of the ball while draped by defenders
Durable with terrific physical and mental toughness
Mature and intelligent with a very good work ethic
Developing talent still offers considerable upside

Doesn't handle pressure well at all and lacks poise
Poor pocket presence and holds onto ball too long
Footwork, mechanics and accuracy are inconsistent
Gets careless with the ball and makes bad decisions
Has too much confidence in arm and will take chances
Extreme lack of mobility and is essentially a statue
Struggles mightily to throw on the run when flushed
Ability to rally team and be a leader of men in doubt
Relatively inexperienced with questionable instincts

Injury History:
None of Consequence

A two-year starter for the Wolfpack --- Served as the backup to Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks early in college career --- Brother Sean played quarterback at Virginia Tech (2004-08) --- Was a highly-touted prep All-American and coveted recruit --- One of the most prolific signal callers in North Carolina State history, ranking at or near the top of the program record book in almost every career and single-season passing category --- The first NC State quarterback to throw for 30 touchdowns or more in two different seasons and joins Tajh Boyd of Clemson as the only players in ACC history to accomplish that feat --- Graduated with two degrees, a Bachelor's in Business Management and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies --- Was not surrounded by a particularly talented supporting cast and often dealt with protection issues, drops, etc. that were at least in part to blame for ups and downs --- Worked as a counselor at the Manning Passing Academy prior to senior season and elicited raves from onlookers during throwing sessions --- Classic pocket passer with all the physical tools to be a high level starter at the next level and majority of flaws are correctable --- Looks like a first round pick one moment then a late rounder the next and consistency will be absolutely vital to maximizing vast potential --- Boom or Bust .
