It's going to be real hard...lots of NFL teams are now keeing 2 QBs on their rosters as opposed to 3 just a few years back. He will not be retained unless they feel he has the potential to be a starter one day.
I wish his arm was more powerful (note the way I worded that). I just hope he can continue to get bigger/stronger and it helps.

No one would be more happy if he made a roster than me. He is a lot like Marcus.
I think this will be the tough part. Although, unlike another recent great college qb who struggled to find a place in the NFL, because he doesn't attract a lot of attention to himself. I think this will increase the chance NFL teams see Shaw as someone who they can stick on the practice squad to give him development time.

That's why players get coached in the NFL also.

Honestly there is nothing to do but wait and see. You see Heisman winners suck and you see nobodies become legends in the NFL. Whatever Connor becomes, none of us can predict, but I wish him all the best.

I get what you're saying, but there are a lot of posters on CT, chances are pretty good one of us actually gets it right or vaguely right enough that we can claim a victory ala michel de nostredame.

The Russell Wilson comparisons are a stretch to me. I still think that Connor Shaw will be a late round draft pick - if not a definite FA signing.

I think he will get picked up. At the very least he could be the scout team qb to help prepare for match ups with mobile qbs

That is amazing! Connor Shaw is as talented a QB as any in the nation. He is unique and refuses to be pidgeon holed as this or that type of a player. Thankfully he wanted to be a Gamecock!

I remember the Southern Miss game to open the 2010 season and seeing Connor run like the wind, and saw him throw 1 or 2 pics as well. And to open the 2011 season he moved us down the field but fumbled and was replaced. Then he eviscerated Kentucky in the first of 18 consecutive home victories.

It was an honor to watch him vs Wisconsin. A great player and teammate is also a great QB!

Yea but according to a poster he didn't beat us twice (his freshman and soph year) so they would have used they, can't beat us can't be a pro QB argument.

The Panthers need him as a backup, we cant keep signing da to one year deals and we cant use an early round pick on one.

Connor will be drafted (and should be), but this is a terrible comparison. AR has a much bigger arm, lightning fast release and was always considered a certain 1st round pick, which he was.

CBS Sports has Connor Shaw ranked as the 227th best player in the draft, ranking in at the 13th best QB. For those interested he ranks behind QBs: Tajh Boyd (10th best QB - 123 overall), AJ McCarron (8th best QB - 94 overall), Aaron Murray (11th best QB - 160 overall).
