Source: Mike Glennon to throw at combine
By James Walker
The Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and other quarterback-needy teams just received more good news Wednesday.
A source confirmed to ESPN.com's AFC East blog that NC State quarterback Mike Glennon will throw at the NFL combine. Glennon joins West Virginia's Geno Smith and USC's Matt Barkley as other first-round hopefuls expected to throw next week in Indianapolis.
Glennon has the potential to shine in this type of setting. He has a big arm that has enamored scouts. Glennon threw for 4,031 yards, 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions for NC State last season.
Overall, this year's quarterback class is considered significantly weaker than last year's class. The 2012 draft produced rookie standouts like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill.
The 2013 quarterbacks have many more questions than answers. That's why top prospects like Glennon, Smith and Barkley are aiming to answer critics, starting next week in Indianapolis.
