It is widely accepted among NFL draft analysts that there are three key quarterback prospects in this year's draft and that those three will likely be first round selections. But is there a surprise candidate emerging?
Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridewater and Blake Bortles have been viewed as the top prospects at quarterback with few others comparing.
However, Gil Brandt a senior analyst with NFL.com, has tweeted his praise for Tom Savage, a quarterback prospect from Pittsburgh.
Very little has been written about Savage, who transferred twice during his college career before finally settling with the Panthers.
Brandt tweeted: "Hearing A LOT of buzz around #Pitt QB Tom Savage. People will be surprised how high he goes in #NFLDraft."
Savage threw for 2,958 yards last season with Pittsburgh, scoring 21 touchdowns and only being intercepted on nine occasions.
According to Brandt, Savage has 16 visits lined up with NFL teams and it seems that the 6'5" prospect could be highly sought after.
Although unlikely to break into the first round at this stage, Savage could certainly represent high value for a team needing another option at quarterback later in the draft process.
Every NFL team is looking for the next Tom Brady, a late round prospect with massive upside. Could Tom Savage be that player?
