I've been thinking the same thing but this made me think twice:

Cam X-rayed - CBSSports.com
Auburn coach Gene Chizik did not elaborate early Tuesday on what could be a significant injury to quarterback Cam Newton in Monday night's championship game

I'll be less concerned if he scores an 8 or so on the Wonderlic at the Combine.

I don't think he'll even be there when we pick

I've got a little of that feeling too. I did read one mock that had us taking him. The guy is going to give scouts & coaches fits this spring, it will be so hard for them to not like him while also having doubts about him. He's one gifted dude, but is he ready to play under a demanding coach like Shan.?

I would be excited if the Skins drafted him. Scared & excited.

Just watching ESPN first take. And some football pundit just explained why he thinks Shannahan will take Cam Newton. Something tells me he'll be our next QB. The media drama would be a complete circus if Cam came here.

Re: Skins have 10th overall selection. Who do we pick?

their division record is better, they are higher in the division standings.
our strength of schedule was harder, we get the lower draft pick.

It seems to me that Shanny may be more enamored with Christian Ponder, given Ponder's football intelligence. Shanny seems to value that. I'm just guessing here, though.

I agree with what you are saying. BUT, I am really impressed with some of the QBs coming out this year.

Michael Vick's style of play might just be the shape of things to come. Cam Newton is damn good at bettering Vick. He has size, escape ability and a damn good arm. I am more impress with him than Luck or any other QB. Another QB that shows something is Colin Kaepernick, not a first rounder like Newton, but he's on the same mold as Vick, but bigger. Mallet is huge, 6'7" and has good mobility.

The only thing I worry about with these type of QBs, is injury to their legs when using their legs to gain yardage.

This is a good class of QBs in this draft to take one. But Cam is damn good. Just hope his ego doesn't get in the way with his NFL career.
