Michigan cornerbacks coach Mike Zordich doesn't coach senior linebacker Jordan Glasgow directly but he obviously sees him everyday in practice and knows what No. 29 is going to bring to the defense. Zordich likes what he sees from Glasgow, both in practice and on Saturdays, and as a long-time coach and NFL veteran, he thinks the that third installment of a Glasgow brother at Michigan has a chance to play on Sundays.

Brown's Breakdown

What Glasgow has done at Michigan is pretty remarkable. Coming out of high school, he was a 6-1, 200-pound safety and had no Division I offers to speak of. He might've garnered some interest from other programs but it was always a foregone conclusion that he would follow brothers Graham and Ryan to Ann Arbor as a walk-on. He now tips the scales at 230 pounds and plays linebacker for the Wolverines and Don Brown.

Despite being slightly undersized and a bit limited athletically, Glasgow has managed to rack up 106 tackles, including 7.5 for loss and six sacks as a Wolverine. He flies around the field, works as hard as anyone on the roster and has actually turned himself into a strong, fast and dependable athlete. Because of that, both Jim Harbaugh, Mike Zordich and others have made some mention of, "Give me a whole team of Jordan Glasgows!" That's one of the best endorsements you can get in football and speaks to what Glasgow means to the defense and the team as a whole.

What do you think of Glasgow's game? Does he have what it takes to play in the NFL? Comment below!!!
