Tom Savage invited to NFL Draft

Published Add your comment

There is no other quarterback in the NFL draft who is riding as big a tide of buzz as Tom Savage is right now.

The former Pitt play caller has rocketed up many people's mock drafts, going from a fifth or sixth round pick to, a third round certainty and where a high pick in the second wouldn't be a suprise.

And now, after all this commotion, Savage’s agent is saying the quarterback has actually been invited to attend the draft next month at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

"Per his agent, former #Pitt QB Tom Savage was invited to New York for next month’s NFL Draft. Hasn’t decided whether or not to attend," Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tweeted earlier.

The NFl has changed the draft into a full three day event so his being invited doesn't make him an automatic first round pick.

What it does state though is that organizers are hearing the same buzz the media is at the moment and that Savage could very well be a second-round pick on Day 2.

In 2013 Savage shone for the Panthers, an incredible feat considering it was his first full season as a starter in four years. The pocket thrower completed 61% of his 389 passes, going for 2958 yards, 21 touchdowns and just nine interceptions, averaging 7.6 yards per attempt.
