09:14 AM ET 05.19 | Something about Mike Glennon has interested Greg Schiano for a long time. When Schiano was the head coach of Rutgers in 2007, he visited Glennon at Westfield High School in Fairfax County, Va., to recruit him Glennon told Schiano his goal was to play in the ACC, not in the Big East. "I was disappointed because I thought he was the best one on the East coast that year," Schiano said. Fast forward to the 2013 draft. Schiano, now the head coach of the Bucs, went quarterback shopping again. And he thought Glennon was more than the best quarterback on the East coast this time. He said he thought Glennon was the best quarterback in the draft. No one expects Glennon to beat out Josh Freeman this year. But it???s not out of the question. Schiano said he believes Glennon "can play quickly" if he is needed. "But our situation will be only if he's needed," he said. "Or if he wins the job. Look, I'm not against that. We have a starting quarterback. It's not like we're looking to find a starter. But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor. I knew that when he was coming out of high school. Now being able to work with him a little, you can see it on the practice field." Glennon will get a chance. Maybe this year. Maybe next, after Freeman's contract expires. Maybe farther on down the line.

And if that doesn't work out he can star as the banjo kid in the remake of Deliverance.

Tampa would have been better off taking Sanchez from the Jets by tossing in another 7th round pick in the Revis deal than wasting a 3rd round pick on this guy.

We will find out shortly who the best quarterback in the draft is, everyone's a winner until the season starts and that includes those who were not drafted, but signed!!!

Glennon is 6'7", he weighs 218 pounds. He's got a 26" vertical, short arms and small hands. Dude is going to get broken when he takes a solid hit which he will because he's slow (4.94 40).

Total waste of a pick.....

Besides....Sanchez might have done well in Tampa....away from the circus.
