Every NFL franchise is allowed to invite up to 30 draft prospects to visit their facilities and meet with the members of the organization before the NFL Draft. These selections range from first-round targets to players who might be available as undrafted free agents. As news about the New England Patriots Top 30 visits surface, Patriots Football Now will highlight each of the visitors. Today’s feature is Georgia State offensive tackle Travis Glover.

College Career

Travis Glover was unranked in the 247 Sports composite ranks out of Dooly County High School in Vienna, Ga. Glover ranked on 247 Sports as a three-star prospect. They ranked him as the No. 170 offensive tackle and No. 192 player from Georgia in the Class of 2018.

Glover committed to Georgia State. However, he did have offers from several major football conferences. These included Mississippi State and Oregon State.

Glover started all 13 games at right tackle in 2019 as a redshirt freshman, The FWAA named Glover to their Freshman All-American Team. He became just the second Panthers player in school history to receive the honor.

Georgia State moved Glover over to the left tackle in 2020. He started all 10 games for the Panthers. He remained there in 2021, once again starting every game for Georgia State. They had a top-ten rushing attack in the country.

Glover began the 2022 season at left guard before moving back to right tackle after four games. He was injured toward the end of the season, ending a streak of 45 straight games. However, he would return for the 2023 season healthy and better than ever. He started every game for GSU. In his final season, Glover was named first-team All-Sun Belt Conference.

Over his college career, Travis Glover proved himself to be reliable and versatile. He also served as a team captain.

Pro Football Focus gave Glover a grade of 71.5 on the season, the highest grade of his career.

NFL Draft

Travis Glover did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine. However, the big man has been very busy following Georgia State’s season. He participated in both the Hula Bowl and Reese’s Senior Bowl. He also performed at Georgia State’s Pro Day, which also featured linebacker Jontrey Hunter, another potential draft pick in 2024.

Glover has excellent size. He is listed at 6-foot-6 and 323 pounds. However, reports indicate Glover has been working out religiously in preparation for the NFL Draft and has dropped 15 pounds. His hard work has not gone unnoticed.

Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy was highly complimentary of Glover.

“Teams looking to draft developmental swing tackle with toughness and make-it physical traits will be targeting Glover in Rounds 6-7,” said Nagy. “File this deep sleeper away for draft weekend,”

Based on his Top 30 visit, Glover has gotten the attention of the Patriots.

Travis Glover was not selected in the seven-round NFL Mock Draft posted on this site (his teammate, Jontrey Hunter, went in Round 6). But it is not hard to see Glover going at the end of the draft. The New England Patriots have brought in several offensive tackle prospects who are on their radar for Day 3 of the draft or as undrafted free agents. These include Penn State’s Caeden Wallace, Tulsa’s Darrell Simpson, and the University of British Columbia’s Giovanni Manu. New England will likely be adding one of these bookends to their roster over the next few weeks. Glover’s size, work ethic, and versatility make him an attractive option.
