Bucky Brooks suggests why Mike Glennon might be climbing draft boards:

Incidentally, I taught a class this semester where Glennon was a student (I teach at NC State). Though quiet in class discussion, he seemed pretty bright to me.

Ah.....Bucky Brooks...

He doth fall into love so easily:

Week 12: Can Lotulelei be 2013's No. 1 pick?
Week 11: Johnny Manziel is QB of the future
Week 10: Ducks' Barner not just a system guy
Week 9: QB Glennon flying up draft boards
Week 8 photo gallery: Top 20 college prospects
Week 7: College football's best defender
Week 6: Geno Smith is the real deal
Week 5: Looking for prototype running backs
Week 4: FSU QB E.J. Manuel answers doubts
Week 3: USC's Barkley is still the best QB
Week 2: Georgia's Jarvis Jones is top Dawg
Week 1: ND's Tyler Eifert stands out

Anyway--the "next Joe Flacco", huh?  Looks like this kid is about 180lbs.

Isn't it grand how they can all "make all the throws" in college.....

Glennon is tall and slender, it's true. I'm 6'5" and he's taller than I am.

The Brooks piece was just FYI. Of course you can dismiss it as BS.

I'm sure he is a nice kid.

ACC football is horrible and he couldn't do much of anything that was impressive in conference play.

I'm really not a fan of this kid in the NFL.

And BTW Everything Bucky Brooks writes is BS, he is one of the worst.

Just FYI. Current NFL QBs from the ACC:

Philip Rivers
Matt Ryan
Russell Wilson
Matt Schaub
Michael Vick
Christian Ponder

I watched him against the Maryland Terps. He has good arm strength and also a nice touch when needed. He sprayed the ball all over the field so the defense couldn't shade to one side or the other because he always seemed to make the right read. My main misgiving with him is his lack of mobility. As stated in Brooks's analysis he has excellent pocket presence but possess little mobility.  

The priority for this organization is to make a determination as to which remaining qb prospect on the board best suits them and then take the plunge with their first pick. It doesn't matter whether another positional player is ranked higher because the organization has to come out of this draft with a legitimate qb prospect. Waiting to use a later pick on a qb at the risk of losing some good qb candidates makes little sense for a team that hasn't had a credible franchise qb in over a generation.

I'm in ACC country and have watched a good bit of Glennon.  I really think he has the tools to be a very good pro, and wouldn't at all be disappointed if the Bills took him with a 1st or 2nd.  Remember, Glennon was the kid that led State to shoo Russell Wilson away.

I am well aware that those QBs played in the ACC?

Have you seen ACC Football in 2012?

On a side note, Bills aint selecting a qb in rd. 1.  Cuz, if they do, they'd have to start him right away. Bills FO is quite aware of fans disenchantment with Fitz. If they draft a qb in rd. 2 or 3 they don't have to play him and can always hide behind the "he aint ready just yet" when Fitz is still sucking.  I mean, T Jax aint even ready and he's been with the Bills since the season began.

Speaking of whom, the Bills could probably pick up the original copy for a song.

IMO this is not a very convincing argument why the Bills won't draft a QB.

So Nix will never draft a rookie QB high as long as Fitz is on the roster?

does not run well, that means he'll be a pat! Brady will be 36 next year, and they can take their time and groom him!

Remember that Glennon was throwing to TJ Graham last season, so Nix has watched him plenty.

That said, I'm not a big fan. His mobility is limited. Here's what Glennon will look like against NFL defenses:
