Draft Analysis:

"He can play both the zone and man schemes. He's also big enough to block those nose tackles." -- Mike Mayock

  • 6'6" Height
  • 33 5/8" Arm Length
  • 307LBS. Weight
  • 10 3/4" Hands

Overview

Left guard, right guard, center: wherever he lines up, Glasgow is a tough blocker that shows enough mobility to make creases for running backs. Glasgow started at right guard as a junior before moving into the pivot for 2015 after incumbent Jack Miller ended his football career due to concussions. Glasgow's nine starts there in 2013 made it an easier move, allowing him to lead a rejuvenated Michigan offense and garner consensus honorable mention All-Big Ten honors with his play.

Analysis

Strengths

Has started as both a guard and center and offers roster depth at either position. Strong lower half. Adequate at sustaining blocks long enough for runners to hit the holes. Aggressive at the point of attack and looks to grind defenders off their spot with leg drive and upper body strength. Has the base anchor to stone a bull ­rush if he gets even average arm extension. Maintains good pocket depth in pass sets as both a guard and center. Tape gives hints of some mean. Praised for consistency by Jim Harbaugh and considered a leader on the team.

Weaknesses

Snap-to-step quickness just average. Marginal athlete who plays with heavy feet. Below average at moving his feet and adjusting his path to block moving targets on the second level. Angles to second level blocks need work. Hands get too wide allowing defenders into his frame first on occasion. Shows issues with slow recognition of twists. Was arrested for driving under the influence in March of 2014 and had his probation extended for violation of alcohol during the probation period. Scouts are concerned with his off-­the­-field discipline with more free time available.

"Well (Jim) Harbaugh has been good for him. He's not a great athlete but he’s got some power but it won't matter if teams don’t trust him because of his issues with drinking. I think Harbaugh kind of woke him up to how much he stands to lose. I don't see us pulling him off our boards for his background though." ­-- NFC Director of Scouting

Bottom Line

Three-year starter who relies on power over athleticism to win his reps. Glasgow’s strength at the point of attack will appeal to power running teams, but his inconsistent connection percentage on second level blocks may worry some teams. Glasgow needs to improve his hands, but he has enough upside to be a quality backup at two positions or maybe an eventual starter.
