They're two very different QB's. Only real similarities are they played at Auburn and they're both black. Outside of that they're not too comparable. Different systems (west coast vs spread), different personalities (introverted vs extroverted), and different styles of play (pocket vs mobile). On top of that they're different in how they project to the NFL. Newton is looked at as a low floor high ceiling prospect, while Campbell was looked at as a medium to high floor, low ceiling type prospect.

It's like saying that Heath Schuler, Rick Clausen, and Peyton Manning are similar players because they all played at Tennessee. I'll admit it's hard not to compare Newton to Campbell simply because of the two similarities I listed but they really are quite different.

I didn't say they'd be similar. I'm just saying is Newton going to really be any better. That meaning, will he ever become an average NFL starter. I just don't see it and I hope we don't draft him.

I don't know about will be better b/c i'm not into the prediction thing.
But, Cam is a better prospect then Campbell.
Cam has a stronger arm, quicker cleaner more compact throwing motion, greater mobility , greater athleticism, greater playmaking.
Also Cam comes off as much more confident.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Bills are probably going to take him. They already run a spread system and are in desperate need for a face of the franchise. Plus if you want to have any hope of beating the Pats your best chance is to find a quality QB. Otherwise hope that you can find a defensive genius that can find 20 guys that fit his system.

CN is definitely a much better prospect skill wise than JC was, not even close really.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Bills will take Gabbert if they need to chose a QB. I could also see the bills make a run at Vince Young.

Re: ESPN Say's Newton To Enter Draft

Bills also have a lot of needs on D, they could go that way and ride it out with Fitzpatrick another year

Isn't that what I said like a month ago? Copycat

There's been a rumor of them possibly taking someone like Dalton at the top of the 2nd, but I can definitely see Cam in a Bills uniform

Agreed. Fitzpatrick had very good games and against good teams. They need to shore up their d-lines and o-lines.

Not even close skill wise. They are both tall and played a Auburn though.

Yep, he was a project qb. Not sure, you take a project qb in the first, much less trade up to get him.

I've got no problem with reaching for a guy if you're convinced he's your guy, but it sure as hell better work out.
