2013 NFL Draft: Will the Cardinals look for Mike Glennon in the second round?

USA TODAY Sports

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has said they don't necessarily need to draft a QB this April, but will Mike Glennon be too tempting to pass on should he fall to the second round?

You may have caught Jess' article earlier today with some quotes from Cardinals coach Bruce Arians stating that the team may not even draft a quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft. He seems to be content with the guys he already has on the roster in Drew Stanton and Brian Hoyer and could ride or die with them.

Still, if they happen to be on the clock with the 38th overall pick in the second round and NC State's Mike Glennon is still on the board, will they simply pass on him? According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN (via Rotoworld) they will not.

In fact, Mortensen believes that the Cardinals are "targeting" Glennon and if he is there at #38, he will almost assuredly be the pick. His big arm and stature lend themselves perfectly to the type of offense Bruce Arians wants to run in Arizona. He can get the ball down the field with long throws and impact plays.

As Rotoworld suggests, Stanton could be a stopgap in 2013, allowing Glennon to hone his skills should he be drafted by the Cards. Then again, Arians has repeatedly said that if they draft a rookie, especially one that high in the draft, they will be on the field right away. Plus, it's hard to imagine Glennon being any worse than Stanton coming right out of college.

What do you think? Would Glennon be a wise selection should he fall to the second round? Tell us in the comments section below.
