2013 NFL Draft — Buccaneers take QB Mike Glennon in Round 3

By: Brad Pinkerton

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted N.C. State QB Mike Glennon in Round 3 (No. 73 overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft, officially putting incumbent QB Josh Freeman on notice.

There’s not much fantasy football value in Glennon right now, but this will be a position battle to watch in training camp. Freeman has been wildly inconsistent as the starter in Tampa Bay, as evidenced by his hot start and frigid finish in 2012. The addition of Glennon sends a message to Freeman that he won’t have a long leash in 2013.

As for Glennon, there is some fantasy intrigue if he unseats Freeman. The 6-foot-7, 225-pound QB was good enough for the Wolfpack to let Russell Wilson walk after the 2010 season, and Glennon responded with 62 TDs with 29 interceptions in his final two seasons as the starter. What we would really like about Glennon is how his strong, accurate arm would mix with the Bucs’ talented receivers.

Glennon first needs to win the job before fantasy owners will pay attention. He also needs to fill out his lanky frame and learn to step up in the pocket, but we’ll worry about that later. For now, Glennon’s main purpose in fantasy circles is making owners nervous about investing in Freeman.
