The old ball coach knows a thing or two about quarterback play.

So people should listen.

Former South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw isn’t viewed as a highly regarded pro prospect, but his college coach says he’s a big-time player.

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said onNFL AM that Shaw plays the game a lot like Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and that Shaw displayed thos intangibles, while leading South Carolina to three straight 11-win seasons.

“He became a starter three years ago, he’s been the quarterback on all three of these 11-win seasons,” Spurrier said. “Connor’s just a winner. He’s a lot like Russell Wilson. He takes care of the ball, doesn’t do stupid stuff, doesn’t take careless sacks, he can throw it away, and he’s really a good passer. Any time you see a guy who can run as well as Connor you don’t think he’s that good of a passer. I think he’s going to wow them at the Combine coming up this week and I hope he’s a mid-round pick, maybe even better. The kid is a winner, he can run with it and he can throw.”
