Guard. Ability to play center. Zone fit.
Stat to know:
15th-best run-blocking grade among Power-5 centers in the class.
What he does best:
• Very quick out of his stance. Can get out and run. Has the coordination to play on the move.
• Will make very difficult blocks look like second-nature at times. Had some gorgeous reach-blocks at the Senior Bowl.
• Ran a bunch of different pro-style concepts at Michigan and started at multiple positions, as well. Graded out better at guard his junior year than at center his senior year.
• Strength is nothing special. Not a guy you can rely on to move the line of scrimmage
• Almost too tall (6-foot-6) for a center. Does very well to fire off low, but still couldn’t get low enough to handle stout nose tackles.
• Hands inconsistent and wide. Regularly allowed defensive tackles into his chest and got out-leveraged.
• Allows guys to cross his face far too often on true down-blocks. Really lunges out to deliver a blow and can get swam over the top.
Glasgow is best-suited for guard at the next level, but his experience at center gives him some versatility. He’ll have to improve his play-strength and ability to bend to start in the NFL.
