NC State

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.

Mike Glennon Fialko: Glennon ready for draft day

"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.

    Dont you dare mention Rivers, and Aaron Rogers in the same sentence! Rivers cant deliver in the clutch. Forget the records, and toilet bowl wins. Rogers had to play behind Farve. Heck Rogers is better than Farve already. Glad Glennon is leaving. get a nail on him, and the turf is waiting. Gald he leaving just like Daniel Evans!! RW, RW, RW,!

    Andrew Luck, RGIII and Cam Newton are the exceptions in that they were given the keys to the team car in their rookie season. Glennon has already been mentioned by the pundits on ESPN, so teams are aware of him and that rocket he has for an arm. While the NFL seems enamored with the mobile QB, I think there are plenty of teams that will be interested in the more traditional drop back QB like Glennon. He may hold a clipboard for the first year or two, but so did Rivers and Aaron Rogers and they have had good careers so far.

    Glennon did a nice job yesterday in his interview. Hope he gets a great number.

    Remember. The NCAA cares not about academics. They don't care about easy classes. And they don't even care about fraudulent classes. Because they trust the schools to handle the academic side of things. Enroll a "regular student" in one of these fake classes, and you're golden. Because then you can bring in an ex-governor to pretend to look at stuff going back about 4-5 years, call it an investigation, and it is no longer an athletic problem.

    Or have you already forgotten all that?

    Sure thing, pansy.

    But until then, you'll just have live with knowing your pansy boys CHEATED to obtain less than mediocre results, and lost to their BIG BROTHER to the east FIVE straight times whilst doing so.

    Chin up!

    The First Year College System will, at some point, be discoverd as the ruse that it is; the mechanism to keep State athletes eligible. Mark my word.

    The example remains. Glennon has a cannon for an arm. He is like them in that they all lack mobility. And that didn't not hurt them in their NFL careers.

    Yes, Rivers got a $95 million dollar contract and rode the pine for about three years because teams don't want to develop quarterbacks any more.

    There are VERY FEW quarterbacks that come right into the league and start immediately.

    How mobile are Elway, Manning, etc.?

    A lack of mobility can easily be dealt with in the NFL. And he's a little more mobile than people realize. He's no Russell, obviously. But he's mobile enough. And smart enough to throw the ball away when a play isn't working out and the heat is coming.

    He has the important skills that he needs, obviously, which is why he is rated (by some) as possibly a sleeper for the first QB selected this year. I'm not saying that is likely, but he's got enough skill that he has SOME people's attention.

    As opposed to a hater of an opposing fan like yourself.
