With the 213th pick in the 6th round, the Indianapolis Colts have selected Michigan linebacker Jordan Glasgow.

The 6’1”, 226 pound linebacker recorded 89 tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss, 5.0 sacks, a pass defensed, and a fumble recovery during 13 starts this past season—earning Academic All-Big Ten honors.

He is the younger brother of Denver Broncos offensive guard Graham Glasgow and Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow—all three were walk-ons at Michigan.

Glasgow played as the Wolverines ‘will’ linebacker last season and was PFF’s highest graded tackler in the entire 2020 NFL Draft Class. He was also a key special teams contributor in recent seasons.

Like another former converted Michigan linebacker for the Colts, Cato June, Glasgow has prior experience playing safety and should bring versatility to the Indianapolis defense.

However, he can struggle in coverage at times (especially against spread offenses) and might be a bit of a tweener at the next level.

If nothing else, Glasgow should contribute immediately on special teams for the Colts, where he could develop into a core player.
