The Eagles haven’t forgotten about the defensive line.
The Philadelphia Eagles are set to meet with Michigan Wolverines standout and defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow on Monday. This was originally reported by ESPN staff writer Michael Rothstein. He’s already met with the New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts and New York Giants. Every Eagles fan should hope he doesn’t land with the last team on that list.
Glasgow’s name has come up a lot during the off-season , and if you’re one of those Eagles fans who follows scouting closely, you’re already familiar with who he is. The Eagles brass interviewed him during their most recent Senior Bowl trip. His official visit to the Novacare Complex on Monday shows Philadelphia is becoming more and more interested in the 6-foot-3 defensive lineman.
Inside the numbers:
According to his scouting report on NFL.com, Glasgow doesn’t take plays off. He doesn’t have any “bad weight” in his 302 pound frame, and he’s effective against double teams and redirect blocks. Most importantly, he’s an effective tackler and good against the run.

All of that should serve as good news for everyone still in mourning over the loss of Bennie Logan.
His senior year with the Wolverines saw him notch 41 tackles (20 were solo) and four sacks. He also forced a fumble. That was good enough for the media and coaches to name him Second Team All-Big Ten.
He also shared the Richard Katcher Award with teammate Chris Wormley, an award given annually to Michigan’s top defensive lineman. NFL.com also believes that he’s, at most, a two-down defensive tackle in the NFL. That may slide him to the third round or beyond.
Let’s all hope the Eagles have figured out the earlier rounds and have, at least, landed one cornerback by then.
