The Chargers wasted no time meeting with Mike McGlynn of the University of Pittsburgh. In turn, McGlynn spent his time wisely, not worrying about mock drafts.
"They don't have a pick," McGlynn said.
McGlynn (6'5'', 315 lbs.) spent most of his career with the Panthers in the tackle position. Last year, out of sheer necessity, he switched to offensive guard and found himself contributing as a long snapper.
McGlynn played in every game (47) during his four-year run with the Panthers and marked 42 starts. He has an explosive step off the snap and the knack to maneuver his man in one-on-one situations. McGlynn is reasonably quick and is talented working with his half of the line.
With the Combine underway, the physical tests are the most frustrating part for McGlynn. After undergoing surgery on his left shoulder last spring, he took the appropriate measures to ensure he wouldn't miss a beat getting back on the field.
While he rates himself highly, he also knows patience is a virtue and waits to see how the league fares come April.
McGlynn is charged by the idea of blocking for RB Ladainian Tomlinson and the Bolts need a player with that desire. With Shane Olivea downgraded from the starting line, a cushion for Jeromey Clary is more prevalent.
As an expected third-round draft pick, McGlynn could be groomed to fill in for Clary, and his experience as a long snapper might be just as alluring to the Bolts. As LS David Binn enters his 15th season in the NFL, McGlynn could learn from the best, working in reps taking long snaps.
McGlynn has entered a new phase in his life, both on and off the field. Sporting a new ring, he and his high school sweetheart married just days before the Senior Bowl. A Mobile, Ala. "honeymoon" is a far cry from what many newlyweds plan, but he feels blessed to have such a supportive wife.
