BY CHRIS BALAS M ichigan center Graham Glasgow went through the gamut of in- terviews during the NFL Combine, es- pecially after he showed well enough to potentially warrant a high pick. He went through drills during Michigan's pro day on March 18 and prepared to answer more questions for scouts, many of them centered on his off-the- field issues heading into the 2015 sea- son that included drinking and driving charges. "It's really not tough," he said. "You just tell them what happened. They've read about it. They just want to see if you tell the truth." He rebounded with an outstand- ing 2016 season and has become a hot commodity leading up to the NFL Draft April 28-30 in Chicago. "It's pretty stressful, but it's good," he said of the process. "It's definitely different than college." Glasgow had already worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Balti- more Ravens, and was slated to do the same for the Arizona Cardinals, Hous- ton Texans and Carolina Panthers. The Falcons had also expressed interest. He's preparing to play either guard or center on the next level and insisted what he experienced at Michigan over the past year has him ready to succeed. "My last year here was awesome," he said. "A fifth year is always great. "I was able to watch more film, and Coach [Jim] Harbaugh and Coach [Tim] Drevno were awesome in teaching me things. I think a lot of teams are impressed with my knowl- edge of defenses, plays and even some formations." Quarterback Jake Rudock was slated to work out with the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings and Miami Dol- phins. He was "the talk of Michigan's pro day … had a lights out workout," analyst Gil Brandt tweeted, and Ru- dock admitted he was fueled by being snubbed for the NFL Combine. Passing game coordinator Jedd Fisch predicted Rudock would be a steal   MICHIGAN IN THE PROS Graham Glasgow And Other Wolverines Excel During Pro Day Glasgow handled difficult questions from NFL teams during the interview process of his preparation for the NFL Draft, and has received interest from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Arizona, Houston, Carolina and Atlanta.
