The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have selected North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon in the third round of the NFL draft.

Glennon completed over 58 percent of his passes for 4,031 yards, 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions for the Wolfpack as a senior. He was the 73rd overall pick of the draft.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano has said he'd like to increase competition at every position with the Bucs, including quarterback, where Josh Freeman is entering the final year of the contract he signed as a first-round pick in 2009.

Freeman became Tampa Bay's first 4,000-yard passer last season, when he also set a franchise record with 27 touchdown passes. But the fifth-year pro's inconsistency raised concern about whether he's the team's long-term solution at the position.
