When you look up the stats, Shaw was on point with the cream of the crop on percentage of deep balls completed, where he lacks is truly on velocity.

Love our former players, but come on. Shaw could go anywhere from the late rounds to undrafted. Manziel is a guaranteed first round pick and that's for obvious reason.

Shaw has:

-Shaky mechanics
-Always looks to run first
-Isn't known as a high volume pocket passer

He doesn't exactly project as a strong quarterback prospect. He's eerily similar to Tebow.

I think Shaw was the only Quarterback at the combine whose ball did not pass 50 mph

There's a realistic scenario where Shaw could go undrafted. He isn't a highly rated NFL quarterback prospect. I'm rooting for him to get selected though.
