I'll give you the Vanderbilt game. Both played poorly with nearly similar stats (Glennon actually threw one more pick), but you cant ignore the fact that Bray played against much better competition in college and has gotten better every year.
How about the one game where they played head to head?? Bray completely destroyed N.C. State and Glennon sh*t himself.
Flacco was considered one of the most accurate college quarterbacks coming out. Glennon isn't even close to being as polished as Flacco was. The only real big knock Joe had was level of competition which was completely out of his control. Glennon comes with a ton of ?'s including footwork, accuracy, throwing motion, and ability to remain cool under pressure, something that Flacco excels at.
The point is that as prospects Bray and Glennon are very similar with high potential. But if you had to ask me which of these has a better chance of being a good one I would choose Bray. I'm personally in the boat of drafting neither so there is no bias here. They're both statuesque quarterbacks who would be terrible for the offense we are trying to run.
Did Bray play tougher competition in college? Sure
His supporting cast was also light years ahead of Glennon's.
Both of Bray's Top 2 receivers are going to be taken in the Top 60 come April, none of Glennon's targets even have a future in this league.
And despite Bray playing with a stellar supporting cast, he never really progressed or took Tennessee even close to where they should've been considering their talent level.
