Glennon anxious for draft day call

There are no more pro days or combines in front of countless scouts for NC State quarterback Mike Glennon, but that may have been the easy part.
"It's just really an anxious process," said Glennon. "Now, I don't have control of the situation. It's really in the teams' hands and who they want to pick."
Which, if you listen to the supposed experts could be anywhere from round one to three, the first QB taken or maybe the fourth.
"Weeks will have gone by and players haven't done anything, and all of a sudden the mock drafts are changing and rankings are going up and down," Glennon said. "What did the guy do in the past couple weeks? Because he's probably just been at home working out."
Pundits may be fixated on picks but not the six-foot-seven right-hander.
"Of course, I want to go as high as possible in the draft, but at the same time, ten years from now I want to say that was the right team for me right from the get-go," said Glennon. "So, it's gonna be a team that develops me as a player."
Buffalo and Arizona have emerged as two possible destinations. Both got a glimpse of Glennon's goods up close and in person. Both squads are in desperate need of help under-center and both were enamored with his prototypical pro-style quarterback approach.
"There's been a bunch of different styles of offense that have come and gone, and the one that has consistently stayed throughout the years has been that drop-back guy," Glennon said.
Whomever may be on the other line, Glennon says that life-changing call can't come soon enough.
"People ask what the emotions will be like, and I'm not real sure because it's probably one of those things until you experience it, you don't know what to expect," said Glennon.
Come draft day, April 25th, Glennon will be surrounded by his family at home in Centreville, Virginia, waiting for the phone to finally ring.
