Round 5: Mark Glowinski, OG, West Virginia
Philadelphia continues the rebuilding of their interior offensive line by drafting another freakishly athletic offensive guard, West Virginia’s Mark Glowinski. At 6’4″, 307 lbs. with 33 1/8″ arms, Glowinski has the size teams usually look for inside. But what should really stand out for the Eagles in particular is his athleticism.
Glowinski ran the second fastest 20-yard shuttle at 4.58 seconds and 3-cone drill at 7.56 seconds at the combine behind only Ali Marpet among guards at the event. He also posted the best broad jump of any offensive linemen at 9’5″, which is very impressive and tied for first among all offensive linemen. Although Glowinski ran a solid 5.20 forty-yard dash at the combine, he improved that number drastically at his pro day, running a 5.09 forty-yard dash.
But it isn’t all about numbers with Glowinski, his production on the field stands out as well. He started every game for the Mountaineers in 2013 and 2014 at right guard, so he is already comfortable in the trenches unlike other prospects that may be converting from either tackle or center to guard. Glowinski would potentially be a late round steal at this point for the birds and may be able to start in their system immediately.
