2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tom Savage, QB , Pittsburgh

Tom Savage is a big, well-built quarterback prospect from the Pitt Panthers. He has a strong arm and puts good velocity on his throws. A couple concerns with his game are his limited athleticism and average at best accuracy.

Tall with broad shoulders. Good technique in his delivery, stepping into throws and maintaining good footwork. Displayed improvement throughout college career. Calm demeanor in and out of the pocket. Durable and willing to stand tall in the pocket. Will absorb hits to make the necessary throws. Steps into his throws even with pressure coming.

Limited athletically. Sluggish and poor agility. A bit older than most prospects at 24 years old. Forced throws downfield and appears to be too confident in his talent. Accuracy declines when on the move. Stares down his receivers.

Savage projects as a late second to third rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Needs a year to marinade on the bench. No redraft potential. A grab and stash for dynasty owners.
