Draft Quick Hit: Mark Glowinski

Mark Glowinski became the second Mountaineer to hear his name called this week when he was drafted No. 134 overall by the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday.

Glowinski started every game the last two seasons at West Virginia after redshirting his first season in Morgantown. The Lackawanna College transfer emerged as one of the top guard prospects in this year's draft after taking great strides and continuing to improve throughout the end of his Mountaineer career under WVU offensive line coach Ron Crook.

The Wilkes-Barre, Pa., native was a second-team all-Big 12 Conference pick in 2014 and brings a ton of versatility to the table - being able to play all three positions along the offensive line. Glowinski also played a team-high 842 snaps during his senior season and anchored an improved West Virginia line.

He will enter a Seahawk roster where he should have a chance to contribute right away. Seattle has six guards on the roster, including starters Alvin Bailey and J.R. Sweezy, and Glowinski will be just the second guard on the roster who was drafted by the Seahawks (joining Sweezy) - as they have five other players who were undrafted free agents on the roster at the position. You could also see Glowinski make an impact at the center position, where Seattle just traded Max Unger as part of the deal that brought Jimmy Graham to the team.
