Default Shaw invited to NFL combine

Maybe somebody has finally seen what we as Gamecock fans have been seeing for 3 years.

Any QB in college football who is as accurate and smart as Connor Shaw is deserves a chance to compete infront of all NFL coaches/GM's. He may not amount to much in the NFL, he may surprise everyone and get a shot at playing. But he's earned enough respect around the country to have the right to compete at the Combine.

It wouldn't surprise me it he did very well in the combine. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

If Russell Wilson can make things happen in the NFL then no doubt Shaw can too.

I truly wish him all the best, he is a great guy, hard worker, team player; I would hire him in a heartbeat.

And how cool was it that the HBC told him at the presser!? I love that Connor said Russell Wilson gave him hope. Big fan of Wilson and it's off topic but can't wait to see him get the money he deserves!

How significant is this invite? I'm not that familiar with the process. Have players not been invited who would surprise us?

Regardless, I would love to see him get a shot. If it doesn't work out for him in the NFL, I know he'll be a successful in the field of his choice.

I can think of more than a few college qb's who made recent NFL rosters whom Connor has outperformed with his legs, his arm, and his decision making. He deserves to make an NFL roster.

I don't get gut feelings a lot, especially not about sports. I (i'm sure some of you know) usually rely on stats to based my opinions off of. But I just have this random gut feeling that Shaw is going to perform really well at the Combine.

We know what kind of worker he is. I think he's going to get there in great shape, run well, lift well, and throw well. Do I think that sky rockets him up in the draft boards? No. But I think he gets drafted in one of the late rounds. Someone gives him a chance.

Honestly, I see a lot of similarities. Russell Wilson is a fiend in the film room, normally getting there at 6 AM. After the recent loss in Seahawks Stadium (I will NEVER call it Centurylink field), he showed up at 4 AM.

Wilson was a third round pick, no respect. "He's too short" but he's smart and gutsy.

The thing people seem to forget is Shaw improved every year he played. I believe he can take it to the next level.

Default Re: Shaw invited to NFL combine

From what I have read, the knock on Connor is arm strength and a history of injuries. He has a lot of thing that can't be measured. He may be better off not being drafted and go look for the right situation for him. He would work well in a system like SEA or 49ers, one that requires good decision making and mobility. Tavaris Jackson is Wilson's back up, Shaw is better than him. Colt McCoy in San Fran, could beat him too.

Anthony Wright I think. I'd love to see Garcia (yes Garcia), Phil petty, or Blake Mitchell at the next level just to see what they possibly could do or could have done.

What about the Senior Bowl? Any chance he gets on an all-star team?

Shaw is a diamond in the rough. If he can be shaped by the right organization, he could be a Gem.....

Also keep in mind that Shaw is not only a QB, but one hell of an athlete.

So damned glad he saved his best for last! Can't wait to follow the rest of the story!
