More on Nassib, Glennon from Senior Bowl
By James Walker
On Wednesday we offered a warning that there will be plenty of varying opinions out there on college prospects leading up to the NFL draft. But there is a ton of interest in the quarterback position from our community due to vacancies with the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.
So here are additional nuggets of information on Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib and NC State quarterback Mike Glennon from WalterFootball.com, which is covering the Senior Bowl practices this week. The site updated the progress of both players and how they look in practices throughout the week.
- On Nassib: "Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib has had a disappointing Senior Bowl in the early going. Sources have said that they expected more out of Nassib. They also were disappointed to see a hitch in his delivery that slows down his throwing motion. They did say that they like Nassib's intelligence and confidence. However, Nassib hasn't done enough to make himself a top contender to be the second quarterback selected."
- On Glennon: "Scouts say that North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon is clearly the best quarterback on the North squad. They like his arm strength and his ability to spin the ball. Glennon hasn't had a dominant week, but his skill set is very intriguing. Seeing him in person has won him more admirers, but there is still an ongoing debate about how high Glennon should go."
Again, this is just one source of analysis. So take it for what it's worth. But it's clear there are no slam dunks in this year's quarterback class. So quarterback-needy teams like the Bills and Jets are taking some risks no matter who they would take. You can see all of the top prospects and do your own scouting Saturday by watching the Senior Bowl.
