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.
