Just found the draft on tv wow, McCarron still on the board. In Obie we trust I guess. Has been a great draft so far, let's see how this pans out.

Savage life.

And I wouldn't rule out Yates. Appears OB like him some big qb's.

Keenum going to have to be really good.

His history and stats are weak. Better to concentrate on the fact that O'Brien likes him. Savage had a great pro day. I guess that means something around here. I'm just glad it was a late 4th, and not an early 2nd round pick.

Default Re: Selection 4.135: Tom Savage

I like it... but Im an optimist.

If you take a chance on a late rounder, you might as well take on with a cannon of an arm and prototypical size. He has a lot to learn, but at least he has all the tools.

OBrien likes him and that`s good enough for me. Id be ecstatic about Bridgewater, but Savage in the very least could be our next Yates - backup QB with the chance to develope into something more. And if he doesn`t pan out, there is always next season. We probably won`t win too many games this year anyways (because of QB), so we should be able to get a "real" QB-talent next season. Now let`s get an ILB...

Edit: Oh, and it`s by far the QB with the coolest name... a lot easier to root for Savage than for Mettenberger or Bortles...

For what it's worth (cue Buffalo Springfield) this was Mel Kiper's 4th rated QB and OB's boy. Jump for joy!

This. Keenum is going to have to make an impression to stick around. OB doesn't appear to like manlets.

First non "value" pick, could've been round 5 or 6th, but i appreciate if Savage is who they targetted to not be cute and take him.

Rounding out to be a really good draft.

I'm really happy with this draft now. We've got our nasty in for the D, got a huge TE target, o line upgrade and now a guy that BOB appears to have been high on from the outset.

This is one of the best drafts I can remember, and we still have time to fill out the last couple of needs.

I didnt want Clowney... And, as you all know, I was a big supporter of Kubiak. That being said, this Smith/OBrien organization is operating at another level. They have masterfully constructed this off-season-culminating with an incredible draft that has blended value with need better than any draft I have ever closely followed.

Has a cannon, pretty ball, fine release, good feet, good size, can process the field.

BUT its all from a small sample size. That is his big knock. Transferred from Rutgers to Arizona to Pitt. Alot of time missed and alot of change to deal with really hurt his stock.

Needs alot of reps.

Of course it means something. If you look back on every draft we have the typical folks in here swear up and down that we have an amazing draft every year despite our losing history. I've heard that same line stating "If Kubiak likes this guy then I'm sold" stuff a Million times. Did you not expect it in this draft? Of course you did.

I don't know much about the kid. Hopefully he is just depth and can sit behind Keenum/Fitzpatrick.

Default Re: Selection 4.135: Tom Savage

nice call from those Savage table-pounders. You know who you are.

A developmental guy who's kinda well traveled. Long story short...he was injured at Rutgers as a Freshman starter and lost his job to Chas Dodd (I'm vague on this part) so he transferred to Arizona. Rich Rodriguez later came in as Head Coach and has a different play style so he transferred again to Pitt. Drafted by the Texans and went on to be the next back to back MVP.
