Alex Khvatov: Describe your first day of practice at the Senior Bowl.
Mike Glennon: Overall, it went well. Obviously, it could have gone better. It is the first day, and you are getting used to some things. You are getting used to a new offense and the new receivers. I think that it was a good practice. We got after it. I am looking forward to tomorrow.
Alex Khvatov: You were listed at 232 pounds during the season, but you came in at 220 pounds at the weigh-in. What happened there?
Mike Glennon: I was a little lighter than I thought. The other day I was on the scale, I came in at 226 pounds. I don’t know what happened. Maybe the scale was wrong.
Alex Khvatov: What can we expect from you the rest of the way?
Mike Glennon: You will see a classic drop back guy who can throw the ball around and make all of the throws.
Alex Khvatov: What areas of your game do you need to improve upon this week?
Mike Glennon: I need to be more consistent. I need to consistently make completions. That’s the key. I need to execute the offense. Hopefully we will complete more balls tomorrow and continue to grow.
Alex Khvatov: What is your goal here this week?
Mike Glennon: I want to prove that I can be a franchise QB for a team. I want to prove to some team that I can be their guy in the future and that I am someone that they can win with.
Alex Khvatov: What are your strengths?
Mike Glennon: I throw the ball well. I work really hard. I am a driven guy. I understand the game of football. I understand the offensive system that I am running very well.
Alex Khvatov: What is your most memorable moment at NC State?
Mike Glennon: Probably beating Florida State this year. They were the No.3 team in the country at the time. We converted three fourth downs on the last drive. I threw a touchdown with 16 seconds left in the game. It was a pretty good feeling.
Alex Khvatov: How tough was it to see your head coach Tom O’Brien get fired at the end of the season?
Mike Glennon: It was really tough. He was the guy that recruited me. He was really good to me. He does things the right way. Unfortunately, it just didn’t work out.
Alex Khvatov: What are your hobbies?
Mike Glennon: I am a very normal guy. I play golf. I am not that good, but I like to play. I hang out with my friends and my girlfriend. I play video games.
Alex Khvatov: Finish the sentence, Mike Glennon is….
Mike Glennon: I am a laid back kind of guy. But on the field and in the huddle, I can get a little more amped up.
