According to ESPN Stats & Information, this is the first time in team history the Bengals have drafted three defensive linemen in the first four rounds. That means defensive coordinator Paul Guenther is serious about getting younger in all areas of the defense. Glasgow is a run-stuffer who ended his college career with two sacks and a forced fumble in his final two games. He had 9.5 tackles for loss last season.
How he fits: Glasgow said he wants to prove that he’s a three-down player. He can rush the passer (four sacks in 2016) but appears to be a specialist at stopping the run, meaning the Bengals will likely use him rotationally in run defense. Outside of Geno Atkins, the Bengals don’t have many proven players on the interior of their defensive line. That could mean Glasgow sees playing time right away as part of a rotation with Andrew Billings and Pat Sims.
