Steve Smith likes the way Joe Flacco throws the deep ball (so what does that say about Cam Newton?) http://wp.me/p14QSB-9uFv
“I’ve been an admirer of him, even just watching him in college at Delaware and then coming into the draft,” Smith said, via Clifton Brown of CSNBaltimore.com. “You know, as a wide receiver you always kind of look at the quarterbacks in the draft every year to see which guys (have potential) and what they say about whom. How I evaluate a quarterback – if he’s on the other hash and you run a comeback, where’s your ball placement? Is the ball hitting the guy at the ankles, or is he hitting him in the chest?
Delhomme tended to lead Smith high if anything (allowing a lot of those good-looking one-handed catches), and those two were extremely productive through the years. So while he didn’t mention Newton by name, it’s almost as if Smith and his previous quarterback weren’t exactly BFFs.
