It's an interesting point though.
There may be QB's with way better completion % but they are not necessarily going to be a better pro.I guess it depends on the type of offence you run and how good the other guys around you are.The numbers on Geno Smith are sensational but is that down to a short passing game that plays to his strengths?...does he have great WR's making him look good?..is his OL and running game able to take a lot of pressure from him.?... or is he just that good?
I don't know enough about Glennon and his supporting cast to have a view other than what limited action I have seen he looks the part,that and the fact I can't think of a single other NC State player in the overall draft conversation,but it is possible those 46 drops are a significant factor that scouts will take into consideration.
I know Sanchez having the most dropped INT's is often quoted as a stick to beat him with(as well as the ones that don't get dropped)so if you happen to consider that an issue with Sanchez then it's only fair it applies to other qb's
