Nolan Nawrocki - Why we need this guy

We have made questionable draft picks... This guy has mad skills.

Read it in FULL... then look at the date

ProFootballWeekly.com - Cam Newton scouting report

"Negatives: Played in a simplified, run-first, dive-option read offense with very basic high-low reads. Worked exclusively out of the gun and was very quick to run at the first flash of coverage. Limited field vision — does not process the passing game. Inconsistent throwing mechanics with a flick delivery — generates all of his power from his upper-body strength and too often arms the ball. Streaky passer with spotty accuracy. Makes his receivers work hard and throws into coverage. Does not spin a tight spiral. Very disingenuous — has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law — does not command respect from teammates and always will struggle to win a locker room. Only a one-year producer. Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness — is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable.
Summary: An extremely talented, dual-threat QB who carried Auburn to a national title, Newton has the arm and athletic talent desired in a rollout, play-action, bootleg vertical passing game and would fit ideally into an offense such as that of the Redskins or Raiders. However, he always will test the rules, be difficult to manage and lacks the intangibles to win the trust of a locker room. Will require a very strong-willed, demanding coach to live up to his potential and avoid the trappings of fame and fortune, but even the greatest taskmaster will not be able to keep away the drama that is still swirling from a stained Heisman Trophy and littered recruiting trail that Newton left in the SEC. Can provide an initial spark, but will quickly be dissected and contained by NFL defensive coordinators, struggle to sustain success and will not prove worthy of an early investment. An overhyped, high-risk, high-reward selection with a glaring bust factor, Newton is sure to be drafted more highly than he should and could foreclose a risk-taking GM's job and taint a locker room."

Remember to look at the date on the previous article.

Jeez talk about telling it like it was going to be.

I'd think he had a Delorean or something

Re: Nolan Nawrocki - Why we need this guy

Even when I was a dirt poor college student I would never consider stealing a laptop. Some days I had no money for food but I made it through and graduated, something Cam never did. He may have all the physical skills but mentally, he's never going to be able to inspire and lead a team to glory. The Panthers would be smart to just cut their losses. I know they won't but it won't get any better until he's gone.

Actually I would like to see more of this guys reports before getting impressed. The only thing I have seen from Newton is everything I expected...

I like that he is still getting playing time. A lot of people wanted his head just the other day.
