    Tom Savage | Quarterback
    Team: Pittsburgh Panthers
    Age / DOB: (23) / 4/26/1990
    Ht / Wt: 6'5' / 235

    Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl calls Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage "one of the most underrated quarterbacks in this class."
    Fans late to the Savage party can be forgiven for losing track of him, as the former elite prep prospect bounced from Rutgers to Arizona (where he was an atrocious fit in Rich Rodriguez's spread zone-read offense) to Pitt. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound quarterback "is an effortless thrower of the football" and will be aided in his transition to the pros by his familiarity to a pro-style system, according to the analyst. "Savage is far from a finished product. However, he displays a physical skill set that translates well to the next level. In addition, he is built for the inclement weather, and teams such as the Jets, Bears, Bills, Packers and Bengals looking to add a developmental backup to their roster could find strong value for Savage early in the Day 3 range," Weidl wrote.

    We're supposedly interested in this player, btw. That's probably why you posted it, huh?

    Never heard of him until I read this post. What round is he expected to go?

    ^^ probably 6th or 7th but it wouldn't shock me if he went in the 5th if some team over drafts him because he's big with a strong arm. Personally, I'd rather take a shot at him than a popular name like Logan Thomas

    He has as much mobility as Bledsoe. Forget it. I am a Pitt fan and graduate and don't want him. He also has times where he just completely loses track of game management. He may take a killer sack instead of just throwing the ball away. Given time in the pocket, he is an accurate passer with a good arm. When things break down, he is bad, sometimes real bad. He won't make anyone miss and that doesn't translate well in today's pro game. Just my opinion asa Pitt fan from what I saw.
