NFL Draft rumors: Tom Savage visits St. Louis Rams


Pittsburgh Panthers quarterback Tom Savage has been one of the hottest quarterback prospects in recent weeks, with many believing that his draft stock has soared into the second-round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

With Savage receiving so much attention recently, it is important to note that he had a pre-draft visit with the St. Louis Rams.

Savage’s visit with the Rams occurred on Wednesday, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan.

With Savage’s size,  6-foot-4, 228 pounds, and his impressive arm strength, he appears to be a heavy favorite to be selected in the first- or second-round of the draft. That is right in the area where the Rams could consider adding a quarterback to their roster.

There is also an interesting connection between Savage and the Rams.

Prior to transferring to Pittsburgh, Savage was a member of the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football program, where he played under offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti, who now serves as the St. Louis Rams quarterback coach.
