Default Connor Shaw in NFL

I know I'm getting way ahead here but sometime in the next couple of years Conner Shaw will be up for the nfl draft given that Spurriurs QB's don't do well in the nfl and at 6'1'' Conner Shaw is not prototypical of NFL QB's (only Michael Vick has Shaws hight and mobility) where do you think he'll get picked, do you think he'll be a QB or be drafted as for another position and what team would you like to see him go to?

Doubtful. Arm strength isn't there and as a mobile QB, he'd get demolished getting hit time and again by NFL linemen and linebackers.

Agree. While he's similar to Drew Brees in size, Drew has a cannon and was putting up big numbers passing at Purdue.

But there's always a chance for a surprise...look at Russell Wilson...never say never.

Wouldn't mind to see him get brought up the ranks as a QB Coach.

Russell Wilson has a rocket on his shoulder as well...similar to Drew Brees' arm. Shaw does not posess many characteristics that can be compared to either.

Reality is Connor Shaw has the potential to do well finishing up his college career but there won't be much room or potential for him in the NFL. His only hope, and this would be slight as well, would be the CFL where mobile QBs are desired and fit the game.

Getting his degree would be the wise decision here, which he obviously will have no problem with.

This. I don't see Connor in the NFL. I doubt he even has that in his sights. Could be wrong...obviously. As Cover said, I'd see him as a LONG TIME USC fan favorite and on the sidelines doing some for Spurrier and moving into coaching...ie Tannyhill, etc.

Drew Brees has never had great arm strength. Never. Connor Shaw has plenty of arm strength for the NFL. If Chad Pennington can hang around for nearly a decade in the NFL and start for some of them with his limp dick arm, then someone will at least take a look at Shaw.

Russell Wilson doesn't really have the strongest arm either. Sure he can lob it long. So could Jacory Harris. It's not about the 50-60 yard lobs with the NFL. It's being able to throw that long drive ball with a little bit of mustard. That's what the NFL wants. Hell there are some high school kids that can go out and chuck it 50 yards downfield, but it isn't going to be a pretty pass.
