The Cincinnati Bengals selected former Michigan defensive lineman Ryan Glasgow with the No. 138 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Glasgow became the second Wolverines player chosen on Day 3 of the NFL draft, and the eighth overall.
The middle of three Glasgow brothers to play football at Michigan — older brother Graham started 11 games between left guard and center for the Detroit Lions as a rookie last season, while younger brother Jordan is a redshirt junior for the Wolverines — worked his way up from walk-on to a second-team All-Big Ten selection in 2016. He made 33 starts in his college career.
Glasgow suffered a torn pectoral muscle that forced him to miss the final four games in 2015, but he came back to make 39 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, and 4 sacks last season. His best attributes just might be his toughness and attitude, which will endear him to NFL coaches. Some players are questioned about taking plays off. Glasgow doesn’t get those questions.
Scouts like Glasgow’s consistency in technique as well as his aggressiveness. They may question his ability to be a three-down player at the NFL level, but the former walk-on will have his shot to prove them wrong.
