NCAA Football: Michigan at Northwestern Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 college football season is only a few weeks old, but one Michigan football defender is getting high marks for his performance so far this season.

Defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow is not always the first name that comes to mind when it comes to the Wolverines’ defensive line (he probably should be, though), but Pro Football Focus says that he is one of the 2017 NFL Draft prospects on the rise:

Yes the Michigan defense has played two terrible offenses and yes the entire defense deserves at least some level of praise for their dominance. However, Glasgow may be the best of the loaded unit, as his two-week grade ranks third among the nation’s interior defensive linemen. Big Ten analyst Josh Liskiewitz sums up his paly through two games:

“Glasgow’s consistently defeated one-on one blocks, and opponents haven’t been able to move him off the line of scrimmage on double teams. In addition to his dominant run play, he’s averaging a pressure once every seven pass rushes, an impressive ratio for a nose tackle.”
