Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Smooth drop, rebounds nicely at top. Flashes ability to progress through read to checkdown. Comfortable maneuvering in the pocket, shows feel and willingness to slide/climb. Above the line arm strength when transferring weight, with above the line velocity and outstanding touch/arc on deep shots. Shows the ability to strike outside the numbers with arm strength and adequate anticipation. Four-year team captain. … Few calls pre-snap. Skewed drop. Lets feet die in pocket. Frequently out-of-sync with receivers, top of drop not timed to breakpoints. Indecisive passer, double-clutches and gets caught on first read. Misses coverage defenders who don't bite on PA/pump fakes. Limited mechanics, doesn't torque core and rarely transfers weight, throwing off back foot or with all arm and causing deep passes to die in air. Struggles to use proper pacing on passes. Average accuracy on short-to-intermediate throws, tends to miss high and forces receivers to adjust to the ball. Lacks AA to escape the pocket. Doesn't improvise well and lacks body control to throw on run. Didn't perform well against top opposition.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
RS Senior who has started all of 46 career games for a 27-19 career record, including 10 starts in 2021 at 7-3. Two-star recruit who opened his true freshman season as the starter. No reported injuries, but did not play in two games in 2017 following a 3/18 passing display. Named All-SWAC Second Team in both 2018 and 2019, improving to National Player of the Year in Spring 2021 (postponed 2020 schedule) and Fall 2021 seasons. Over career tied for 11th for FCS passing TDs and 14th in passing yardage. Under HC Connell Maynor (fourth season), OC Duane Taylor (fourth season), and QBs Coach Jason Mai (fourth season), Glass leads a shotgun-heavy offense that emphasized runs, Screens, and deep shots with some RPOs incorporated. Developmental QB you can win despite from the pocket. Big, strong passer who has the arm talent to spread the ball across the field. Immobile and needs significant mechanical refinement to improve accuracy and capitalize on arm strength. Doesn't show decision making ability to survey field from the pocket.
