2008 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Mike McGlynn, OT, Pittsburgh
McGlynn has been one of the cogs in Pittsburgh's offensive line for the last four seasons. After redshirting in 2003, he was named one of the team's most improved players in spring drills the next year and in his redshirt freshman season, quickly became a key part of the Panthers' O-line. He played in all 47 of Pitt's games in the last four years, starting the final 43 in a row. From 2004-06, he helped protect Tyler Palko, who threw for 8,330 yards and 66 touchdowns in three seasons. This season, he was part of a line that opened up holes for freshman running back LeSean McCoy, who ran for 1,328 yards and 14 touchdowns. In his career, he has also been the long snapper on field goals and extra points, during which Panther kickers have made all but one of 136 extra-point attempts and have made 78.5% of their field goals (66 of 84). McGlynn has played at right tackle throughout his career, but he could slot in anywhere on the line. His opposite number, left tackle Jeff Otah, may have skyrocketed up the draft boards past him, but both of the buffet blitzers will go early. Otah might turn out to be the first-round pick, but with his durability and versatility, McGlynn should easily be taken somewhere in the first three rounds.
