Glennon absolutely has a higher upside than Wilson, and I'm a big Wilson fan.
His measurables are basically ideal: 6'6 235...cannon for an arm...deceptively athletic.
Compare that to Wilson. Some think Wilson will be lucky to measure in at 6'2. Wilson has a good arm, but not an "elite" arm like Glennon possesses.
And Wilson's flaws basically mirror Glennon's. Footwork and questionable accurracy. Things that can be corrected with the proper coaching. Which you can bet your ass won't be administered by Cavanaugh or Sparano next year.
Personally, I like Glennon in one scenario and Wilson in another.
Glennon is pretty much expected to rise into the Top 15 post senior bowl/combine. So if we decide to go in that direction, I'm all for taking him in the 12-16 area where we will most likely end up picking.
If we decide to go in another direction in the 1st round (OLB, OL, etc), then I'd want to go with someone like Wilson or Nassib in the 2nd round.
This team needs to add a young QB come draft day anyway you slice it. And I'm not just talking about some 6th/7th round pick whose longterm potential is a solid backup. This team needs to draft a QB within the first 3 rounds. A kid who has the potential to be at least a viable starter in this league.
