It is amazing how bad it is that a guy with virtually no NFL level quarterbacking skills is promoted as the #1 QB in the entire draft. What's even more amazing is how a dozen or so concerns when it comes to white/Mexi/Indian QB's goes out the window when it comes to an afflete. Well i'm unbiased, and a pretty good scout who has gotten picks right more often than McShay, Kiper or any other clown and here's my untainted scouting report. Strengths: He can run. He has good size for a linebacker or blocking tight end. Maybe could find "success" as a Wildcat "Quarterback." Weaknesses: Doesn't work the pocket. If his only read isn't open or defensive players get too close he's quickly scrambling. Like other quotabacks he likes to try and be the entire cadre of playmakers on his own coupled with happy feet. Never steps into the pocket to try and save a play. His throwing mechanics suck. Doesn't know how to plant his feet to throw and uses his entire body to lob the ball. His footwork is atrocious and at a high school level at best. No experience under center. No experience with dropping back to pass, strictly a NCAA spread QB. Arm strength is highly overrated by the DWF's, NAACP football fans and the media. Comes from a gimmick offense. Has never made reads nor gone through progressions. Only has experience in a base "throw to so and so and if he isn't open run" college style. Can't "thread the needle" to his WR's, if his option isn't standing wide open he's unable to make the throw. Has never had to and has no experience in calling plays. His leadership ability is nonexistent and he has more character concerns than mega-bust Andre Smith. Comes from an entitlement mindset ala Vince Young and won't take well to hard coaching, will need to be coddled. Ego issues cause Newton to view himself as better than he is and likely to prevent him from taking constructive criticism nor improve his stock. Anyone who has actually watched tape on Newton(as opposed to beating off to highlight videos and his ebony skin) has seen it for himself. He's like many other wannabe Quarterbacks in the NCAA, from a gimmick program that can make the stat sheet look good yet cannot translate to the NFL game. They're going all out with sCam, they even brought out the one good black QB in NFL history to prop him up and promote him. Reality is it's unlikely he even meets a All He Do Is Whine level in the NFL much less any success. The comparisons to Jamarcus Russell overall are pretty apt.
