With the No. 135 pick in the NFL draft, the Houston Texans selected Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage.
Possesses the arm strength to complete the throws needed by a NFL QB, but lacks experience. Had to sit out a couple of seasons because of transfers to find the right program. Experience at Pitt in a pro style offense will help him develop a bit quicker, but needs the reps to stop staring down his primary receiver. Tall at 6'4", so downfield vision should not be an issue. The fact that he was willing to sit out when transferring speaks to his devotion to the game. More of a dynasty pickup, as he will need some time to grow into being a decent pro QB.ANALYST: Ivar G.

Cameron Maybin went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday’s 7-1 loss to the Mets.
Maybin is seeing plenty of time in center field for the Braves right now, as he is a strong defensive player with exceptional range. At the plate, he has been anything but consistent, going just 4-for-28 over the last eight games. However, Maybin has displayed an unexpected power stroke, as three of those hits have left the yard. With enough at-bats, the fleet-footed 28 year old could have a shot at 15/15 production with regards to homers and steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
