The Colts round out the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting Jordan Glasgow out of Michigan. Glasgow is a versatile player as he played safety, cornerback, and linebacker throughout his four years at Michigan, as well as contributing on special teams. He’s a player that grinds every day in order to get better, regardless of the position he plays. He’s also a smart football player and a strong tackler.
Glasgow isn’t going to have an easy path to the NFL, however. As a defensive player, his lack of speed and lateral quickness won’t translate well into the pros. He doesn’t have a ton of experience playing linebacker, either. His only real shot at making the team’s roster is on special teams.
"“I’m open and I would be happy to play special teams,” Glasgow said. “I feel like I have a lot of experience at it, and from what I’ve gathered with some discussions from teams, that they like that I have a lot of experience in special teams.”"
Colts 2020 Projection:
As I just said, Glasgow’s hope for making the now crowded Colts defensive roster is slim to none, but he does have a chance as a gunner/special teamer. His good tackling in the open field will do well to the NFL, and if the Colts are sold on his ability in special teams, he’ll make the end of the 53-man roster.
Rookie Projection: N/A
The Colts don’t really need any of these defensive selections to make an impact immediately. Frankly, it would be surprising if they did. But once Blackmon is fully healed from his torn ACL, he could be the best of this group in years ahead.
