Tragic Update: The daughter of former New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, has passed away…

The offensive tackle position remains one of the biggest needs for the New England Patriots, with the top of the depth chart consisting of Chukwuma Okorafor, Calvin Anderson and Conor McDermott on the left side.

New England investing in the position during this year’s draft therefore makes plenty of sense. But with plenty of other needs elsewhere — specifically at quarterback and wide receiver — they could wait to take a late-round flier (or double-dip at the position) on a prospect with intriguing traits. One name that fits the description that the Patriots have shown plenty of pre-draft interest in: Travis Glover.

Let’s therefore take a closer look at Glover to find out what he would bring to the table
Hard facts
Name: Travis Glover

Position: Offensive tackle

School: Georgia State

Opening day age: 24 (8/17/2000)

Measurements: 6’6”, 317 pounds, 9 3/4” hand size, 34 3/4” arm length, 84 3/8” wingspan, N/A Relative Athletic Score

Career statistics: 59 games (57 starts) | 4,164 offensive snaps, 372 special teams snaps | 85 quarterback pressure (57 hurries, 17 hits, 11 sacks), 15 penalties

Accolades: First-Team All-Sun Belt Conference (2023), FWAA-Shaun Alexander Freshman All-America (2019)
Glover’s football journey seriously began his junior season of high school where he quickly drew attention as an offensive and defensive lineman. As a three star recruit, Glover received several Power-5 offers from SEC and Pac-12 schools but stayed close to home with a commitment to Georgia State.

After redshirting in 2018, Glover earned the starting job at right tackle and was named a Freshman All-American. Glover then moved to the left side the following year — a position he held through the 2021 season as he started all 23 of Georgia’s State’s games in that span. The start of the 2022 season saw Glover move inside to left guard for four games before eventually kicking back out to right tackle. A minor injury then costed Glover a Week 10 contest which snapped his streak of 45 consecutive games played.
Returning for his sixth season, Glover was back on the blindside where he earned First-Team All-Sun Belt Conference honors. He then attended the 2024 Hula Bowl and was then a late add to the Senior Bowl roster.
