Sell me on Mike Glennon

Right now I don't see anything about the guy that I like.

I haven't watched any more than about 2 minutes of live game footage. I've seen a bunch of highlights of his throws on youtube.

I want to like the guy. I want him to be good so people will stop bitching about how supposedly terrible this year's QB class is, but every time I watch something of his, I get turned off. He's 2nd round material at best to me that will (possibly) get taken in the top 10? Some people even have him as the top QB off the board?

That's pure insanity to me.

Tell me/show me stuff about Mike Glennon that will change my mind. I promise to withhold all preconceived notions about the guy in this thread for the purposes of trying to like him.

Based on the stuff I have watched so far, no. He's NOT better than Geno Smith, and he won't ever be. But I'm tired of shitting on him when everybody is talking him up as potentially a good pro QB.

FSU is statistically ranked the 2nd best defense in the country behind Alabama.

Bjoern Werner (top 5 projected NFL draft pick) and Tank Carradine gave FSU the best pass rush of any team. Both had 10+ sacks.

Everette Dawkins is one of the best run stoppers in the draft this year.

Xavier Rhodes is said to be the 2nd best talent CB in the draft and is expected to be taken in the first round.

They also have a couple more younger guys who are going to be high draft picks in the future.

Um yeah they are the best this year.

I believe it was LSU and Clemson, I could be wrong. I'll ask Siri and see what she thinks.

Down 16-3 in the 4th quarter and throwing 2 TD's to beat the best defense in the country.
Threw game winning TD on 4th down with 16 seconds left in the game.

This is the most impressive thing any QB in this class has done all season long.
Things I learned about Glennon watching this highlight tape:

1) He's really good at throwing crossing routes to guys that have a step on their defender
2) He checks down a LOT
3) He's not very mobile (though he can throw a bit when on the move)
4) He makes a lot of risky throws

I didn't see any WOWing throws on that highlight tape.

Geno put up 49 against a top 10 ranked passing defense this year. But who cares, I've been told that drafting a QB in the top 5 is WAy to risky and we can only draft sure fire HOF'ers that high.

He's white and can actually throw a football with some degree of accuracy. Therefore, he is not Vince Young.

More selling points on Mike Glennon.

-Has 2 years experience in a pro style WCO.
-All ACC Academic team. Kid is really smart. Graduated in 3 years and is working on his masters. Never dropped a class.
-Very good in the intermediate throws.
-Can make good throws downfield.
-Goes through progressions almost every play.
-Reads defenses well and can fool DB's with his eyes.
-Very strong arm. Not elite, but 2nd tier like Joe Flacco.

Watch this Clemson (63rd ranked D, 1 higher than OU) game to get another great look at his abilities.



Like I said before, his accuracy problems are a mirage. In previous threads, it was noted that his receivers dropped 12 passes in the NC and Maryland game. In this Clemson game, his WR's dropped 5 balls that should have been easy catches. If those 17 passes were caught, like they should have been, his completion % is 61.5.

And yes he does check down a lot, but I don't blame him. His WR's suck ass and get no separation while his OL is getting beat constantly.

When was the last time some dipshit came out of college with a 58.5 percent completion percentage and was a good NFL QB?

When I saw him live the only passes that were accurate were passes in which there wasn't even a window. It was more like a 30 yard cushion. When required to throw into a small window he couldn't even hit the side of the house.

His accuracy problems are real, IMO. He sucks. Do not want.

I can't believe someone is trying to make a case for Mike Glennon.

We're not "sold" on him. There's a chance he could bust. There are things I don't like about his game.

But 95 percent of the board pretty clearly sees him as the BEST option, over any other player, and that's pretty hard to argue against.

Russell Wilson played in the same offense with the same coach with the same shitty surrounding talent and never completed 60% of his passes 3 years at the same school
