Savage doesn't have Bortles mobility. Not by a long shot. But, he's not a statue, either. Has the same reverse pivot move Bridgewater employs. The main problems I see in watching him are ball security and locking onto receivers. A lot of young QBs have this problem. But then, most rookie QBs are younger than 24.

Does this guarantee that the Texans will carry three QBs this year?

Does this mean that Savage get an automatic free ride?

Savage will really have to screw the pooch in camp and preseason not to get a job.

Exactly. Roster spot is where he needs to place his worry.

Do the measurements of the four QB's on the roster.

Especially two that OB has specifically brought in this year.

One of these things is not like the others.

Default Re: Selection 4.135: Tom Savage

From NFL.com:

Strengths Terrific size. Sets with balance. Easy, compact, high three-quarters release. Spins a catchable ball. Excellent arm strength to complete NFL throws -- capable of sticking outs from the deep hash or launching balls 60 yards on the money. Experience in pro-style offense. Smart and hardworking. Solid personal and football character. Has tools to work with. Team captain.

Weaknesses Needs to speed up his clock and show better awareness in the pocket. Needs to quicken his eyes, expand his field vision and learn to manipulate safeties. Tends to stare down his target. Forces some throws into traffic. Erratic accuracy. Slow of foot -- not a scramble threat. Can improve play-action fake. Had some duds -- struggled against Florida State, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Mental toughness needs to be looked into.

Draft Projection Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line Big, inconsistent pocket passer who took a circuitous route to Pittsburgh, where he played a full season for the first time since 2009. Is inconsistent and in need of more reps, but has ample arm talent to warrant developmental consideration if teams deem his intangibles worthy of an investment.

- Maybe OBrian wanted him because he is a Pennsylvania guy. I guess I like having a QB pick but would have preferred Murray (or Carr earlier.) Hopefully, Keenum steps up. In my opinion Fitzpatrick is just another guy like Schaub. The talking heads on ESPN were calling him a "serviceable veteran", which is a euphemism for a bum.

That's what I was thinking. If there was ever a guy who's body was of work was average only because one player he drafted its polian.

I was hoping for Aaron Murray but at this point the risk is lower and ill still be optimistic and believe the new regime can develop a QB that fits their mold.

#Texans now have 4 QBs on their roster. #Ravens have been open about getting a backup in this draft. TJ Yates / Keenum know the offense.

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.
Wih regards to the Arizona situation, there is no fault on Savage for that situation. Matt Scott (who was Rodriguez's QB1) was absolute chalk and cheese in style to savage.

I'm hoping that the lack of consistency in Savage's college career has helped us pick up someone who would have gone a lot higher had he had a more stable college situation.

He kinda moves like Rex Grossman. He could be the next Cody Carleson if he plays his cards right. I wonder if we dip back into the QB pool and take another one?
