He's not a Shanahan type of QB that's for sure. He's going to be a statue in the pocket. But at least he's big enough to take the punishment, and he should be able to muscle his way out of some sacks.

Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

@ Matty, I dont really know how to explain why but he just seems like he has the type of attitude or personality of people I've know that drugs. This is the only interview I've ever seen of him though, but he just seems like a dude that likes to party.

@Gmscud, yeah I thought that comment really made him come across as a douch bag

Veteran scout: Cam Newton “looks terrible” during Combine workout | ProFootballTalk

Looks like Newton may have just stayed with a choreographed Pro Day

How come it seems like the dissenting or minority opinion that doesn't put their name to their statements gets the most pub?

Quote:
At least one veteran scout was far less impressed by his workout.

The scout, who works for a team that has no short-term or long-term need at the quarterback position, said that Newton “looks terrible.”

Opinions may very well vary. The reality, however, is that teams that love a player will be inclined to say bad things about him, both to throw other teams off the scent and in the hopes that the player will be available when the team uses its first draft pick. Teams that hate a player will be inclined to say they love a player, in the hopes that someone else will burn a pick on the guy, pushing truly coveted players farther done the board.

In this case, our source would be far more inclined to rave about Newton, ensuring that he’ll be taken with an early pick.
I have a hard team beleiving a veteran scout is going be forthright w/ a member of the media like Florio.

Yeah it does ring of "a friend of a friend" line, doesn't it? Mike Mayock, for what it's worth, was not concerned with Newton's issues today. He simpy brushed it off as him throwing to the receivers and not to a spot. Measurables are all top tier, looks fluid and comfortable. Mayock did however left with the caveat that there is two months remaining to discover his other issues.

I was shocked how absolutely terrible his press question and answer period was yesterday. That was the first time I heard him speak and my immediate thought was no way I want this guy as my QB.

Re: The 2011 NFL Combine Discussion Thread

Rumor is Seattle would be willing enough to trade up in the top 10, wonder who they want? Obviously a QB

I saw Cam throw deep sideline patterns today and it didn't take an expert to see that his throws were way off. He threw the ball 5 or more yards out of bounds several times in a row. He was nowhere near the spot that was marked with an orange cone or a receiver, for that matter. He basically sucked in that drill.

But, hey, he passes the looks test, he's a great physical specimen, and he's charming to the media. Perhaps those things are masking the smell of bust on him.

Just as a comparison, Rabach did the bench press in his basement to see how he stacked up to these kids. He did 6 and a half.
