A thorough breakdown of Cam Newton

This article has been floating around on other boards, and thought It should be shared here as well.  There seems to be growing talk of Cam Newton being a possible pick for the Panthers, so a complete breakdown should be a must read for all true Carolina fans.   Doesn’t matter whether you love the guy, hate the guy, are on the fence, or think the pick should be traded, you owe it to yourself to read the article.  It is VERY long, but well worth the time.  The videos (near the bottom) are nice too. Enjoy!

Re: A thorough breakdown of Cam Newton

Great article.  I can see us taking him #1 to be our QB or to see how much a team is willing to give up after hes off the board.

His work ethic or potential lack of one is what worries me the most  ....... Regardless, in a draft without a consensus number 1 pick any value, top pick talk etc Newton drums up in the next 6 weeks only increases the value of Panthers #1 pick.

Re: A thorough breakdown of Cam Newton

If we take Cam Newton for our 1st pick then we have done absolutely nothing to improve from last year. He is a project. I'm not saying he will be a bust but thats just not a chance I feel we can take right now. Yeah, hes big and mobile but so is Vince Young and look where that got him. Going from a spread offense to a pro style is gonna take alot. Clausen came from a pro style offense and he struggled. Yeah, I know I know....but he never showed ANY signs of improvement and/or leadership. Not a Clausen fan at this point. I really want to see what T. Pike has and I have a feeling we will during camp and preseason....if there is one.

Re: A thorough breakdown of Cam Newton

I beleive this Kid can, He is a Winner and Pike could big also. But if we waiting on Clausen we may as well bring Fox Back. Clausen didn't have a chance with the Surporting cast, but he couldn't throw that football in the Ocean unless it had the other Teams jersey on.
The big Cat was ticked off all of last year and cut every talented player with a big Contract and it showeed on the field. Fox didn't have a prayer and we could only hope for a miracle as Fans. I hope they come up with an agreement and the players should be willing to give. JR has a lot of Class and for him to be so ticked off someone BS ed Him and I am pretty sure it was the Players Union after all he kept things together a couple of years back. I must agree with all that the ownwers have invested they should get a better return than someone that has no money invested. I understand there is always 2 sides but Really should an unproven Player get 60 million a year and 5 round veterian with a butt load of talent get screwed. The system is broke and all those poor fellows are going nuts trying to figure out how to split just 9 Billion Dollars. That has to be tough. I am starting to feel sorrow for all of them.

Re: A thorough breakdown of Cam Newton

If they pay them for what they do instead of what they think they might could do I beleive  everyone in the 1st and 2nd round will pick up the pace and the the work ethic will no longer be a problem. They need a Rookie pay Scale like a normal Job and if someone excels pay them like almost Normal People. They still will make more in 1 Season than most people will in a life time.Look at Steve Smith he earns his money and then some and look at how long it took him to get it, all because he wasn't an early round pick. Cam will be Good and maybe Great only time will tell and with a pay scale I think he will be worth the number 1 pick becuase he will have a Reason  to be Great. Just think No more Number 1 Screw ups or even number 2 and so forth. Just a lot of Plyers earning their money. There will be a lot of agents pissed and out of the colleges ranks with all of their gifts screwing up abunch of kids the NCAA will be cleaned up at the same time.
