    Tom Savage

    Quite like the look of Tom Savage, is it worth drafting him as a second qb as he will be a late round pick.

    Has a big arm and looks as tough as a german tank.

    How Tom Savage Became the 2014 NFL Draft's Biggest Sleeper | Bleacher Report

    If he is available in the 6th or 7th, he would be a nice project. If we can't get one of the ones we want, this would be a nice "no big deal" pick up.

    Intriguing! I LOVE his size, strength, and toughness. If he's there in the 6th or 7th round, I think the Vikings should pull the trigger and select Savage. Nothing to lose and everything to gain! I think the fans will pull for him to succeed...

    I just saw on "Path to the Draft" on the NFL Network he is moving up people's boards due to the lack of quality QBs this time around. There just isn't ENOUGH new talent to go around, so if we want him, we might have to get him in rounds 3 or 4; too high, IMO.

    I seriously doubt anyone will take Savage in the 3rd or 4th round. 5th or later is much more likely.

    He was at Rutgers at the same time as me. He didn't get a fair shot. He had a strong freshman year, then got hurt playing behind a terrible o-line in 2010 and unfairly lost his job. Definitely caught some bad breaks.

    He showed what he was capable of at Pittsburgh after having to sit for so long. I'm not sure if his success will continue in the NFL, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Vikings give him a shot.

    Hopefully the Vikings will give him a shot. As hopefully it would be nice. As it would be a shame if a team passed up on him!

    His stock is rising VERY fast. People love his build and mental makeup ... and teams with a few less needs than others will take a shot on him. He could last to the fifth round. But there is little chance he lasts later. He could even become QB No. 7 off the board (Bortles, Bridgewater, Manziel, Carr, Mettenberger, Garrapolo, McCarron) and if his stock keeps rising then maybe he leapfrogs one of those guys as well.

    I like his measurable as well and his last season at Pitt was successful so he is an intriguing prospect. I would say no higher than a fifth round pick if we drafted another QB. We could take him in the fourth if we haven't drafted a QB yet. You are right, he is shooting up the chats.

    funny little surprises always pop up on draft day, ya never know, he could go ahead of half of those guys.

    Thing is, there will be at least one coach who believes he can coach up what the kid doesn't know...BUT, you can't coach up size or physical strength.

    And Savage would be such a great name for a VIKING!!!!

    SKOL SAVAGE VIKINGS!!!! ;o)
