Summary: Cameron Newton became a superstar in a very short period of time. His circuitous route to the Heisman trophy and BCS national championship will be scrutinized by NFL decision-makers. Whether or not he actually knew about his father auctioning his services to the highest bidder, there are other red flags in the character department for him to answer to. Lack of big time college football experience is a huge concern. FBS teams barely had any time to assess his weaknesses and attempt to exploit them, something which is not going to be the case at the NFL level.
Player Comparison: None. There is no single player Newton's game compares to. His combination of size and speed is pretty much unprecedented. The laziest comparison is Vince Young and from a scrambling standpoint it is fair, but Newton is more accurate as a passer. He is not going to give defensive coordinators ulcers preparing for his running like Michael Vick has, however, which is what makes him such a unique prospect. Dream scenario is that he is a faster Ben Roethlisberger.
Exactly and now they also have trade assets. Grasu could get a pick from a center needy team, Kush can back up Whitehair. Glennon can head to AZ for a pick when Palmer gets hurt or continues his poor play. Someone may want to gamble on Kyle Fuller and give up a late pick if he doesnt impress the Bears staff. Amos or HJQ could get a 6 or 7 from a safety needy team.
I was waiting for this comment. Im not saying that their gonna have the same careers as these dudes. Thats imposible. I compare them to who they have similar games to. Just so people can get an idea how these people play. All fun. I got the best mock out you better take it seriously.
