NFL Draft: Breaking down QB Mike Glennon

As people have read through my NFL Draft thoughts over the past two months, there has been a consistent theme: I am not a fan of quarterback Mike Glennon.

I had Glennon as a round 4-5 guy coming into the season, and didn’t see a ton of things that made me think that I was that far off.

As soon as Bruce Arians was hired by the Cardinals I received a barrage of texts, emails and tweets telling me that team was going to be interested in Glennon because of his “fit” with what Arians wants to do on offense, and that was confirmed when the team held a private workout with the QB.

While the report states the Cardinals are likely not interested in Glennon at pick seven in round one, there is a real possibility that the Cardinals will target the Wolfpack signal caller in round two.

What can Glennon bring to the Cardinals’ passing attack, and could he be the long term answer at the quarterback position?

The Good

Arm Talent

Few, if any quarterback prospect, possesses the functional arm strength of Glennon. The only one might be Tyler Bray, and that is something Arians would be able to have a little fun with in this Cardinals offense.

Glennon’s arm strength will allow Arians to deploy his entire play book from any spot on the field, because Glennon can make throws no matter where the ball starts. Want to run a deep out to the far side of the field from the near hash? No problem.
