Mike Glennon headed to Tampa Bay

Quarterback Mike Glennon learned his fate Friday night, being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 11th pick in the third round and 73rd overall selection.

The 6-7, 225-pound Glennon was the crown jewel of former coach Tom O'Brien's first full class at State in 2008. Coming out of Westfield High in Centreville, Va., and considered perhaps the most highly touted signal caller to ever sign with NCSU, Glennon had to wait his turn behind Russell Wilson for the first three years in Raleigh.

Ironically, Wilson would also be a third round selection and starred last season as a rookie starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.

Glennon started the last two seasons for NCSU, throwing 63 touchdowns in 26 starts for the third highest total in school history. Glennon's 4,031 passing yards last year was the second highest ever by a State signal caller.

Quarterback was not a pressing need for the Bucs, but there is growing pressure on Josh Freeman, the starter for much of the last four seasons. Freeman has thrown 43 touchdowns and 39 interceptions the last two years.

The only other quarterbacks on the roster are veteran journeyman Dan Orlovsky and Adam Weber, who has never attempted an NFL pass.
