Pitt QB Savage turns down NYC invite to NFL Draft
Former Pitt quarterback Tom Savage, whose NFL Draft stock has risen dramatically since the end of the season, has declined an invitation to attend the event May 8 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, according to @GoPittFootball, the program's official Twitter account.
Savage, who was not available for comment, is considered one of the draft's top quarterback prospects, and is projected by ESPN analyst Todd McShay to be selected by the Houston Texans with the first pick of the second round.
Savage played only one season at Pitt, completing 238 of 389 pass attempts for 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
