Glasgow shows some quickness off the line which allows him to quickly reach the second level. He approaches the linebackers with balance and routinely able to make contact. This helps the running backs break off long runs once they get past the initial defenders.
The issues come when Glasgow is asked to work in the trenches and generate a push off the line of scrimmage. He lacks the explosiveness and strength to generate a strong jolt which is typically needed when looking to gain movement.
Glasgow struggles with his hand placement and will often find his hands on the shoulders of the defender. This is an issue because it will result in a lot of holding calls at the next level. Inside hands are also a key factor in a blockers ability to control the action.
Most NFL teams have top-notch athletic training staffs that work with players to improve their strength. Glasgow will absolutely benefit from this if he’s willing to put in the extra work. His inconsistent hand usage is an area that can also be corrected through practice and coaching.
It’s the fact that most of Glasgow’s problems are correctable that gives him some upside in the NFL.
