"If scouts saw this they'd have been slobbering," added Dilfer, who called Newton a "dynamic athlete" and "incredibly impressive." Dilfer praised Newton's refinement, accuracy, and arm strength while proclaiming the "sky is the limit." - Dilfer per PFT

“I really didn’t need to see the workout, nor do I need to hear about the workout. …“To me, there are two issues with this kid,” said Mayock. “Issue number one is he came out of a shotgun (offense), and if you watch the tape it’s basically a very simple offense. … And secondly, most importantly, when you get to a certain skill level in the NFL, which this kid certainly has, at the quarterback position, what kind of kid is he? “Is he going to be the first guy in the building? Is he a gym rat? Is he football smart?”

I'd say his projections aren't flawless. He wasn't way off on some recently, but just something to consider.

Overall, Newton's workout rates at an A- in my mind, and scouts will be impressed when they see him unveil his skills at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month. If he performs to this level during the combine workout, he will force many teams selecting within the top 10 of the draft to consider him as a franchise quarterback prospect. - Bucky Brooks

I made this thread for the those who want to discuss the analysts perspective on the workout. Not for Cam Hate/Love & race BS like my other thread turned out to be. :toetap05:

I have allot of respect for Mayock, Brooks and Dilfer... I think their opinions demonstrate that evaluating QB prospects is an inexact science.

Yeah you can't hit on every QB but Cam is an intriguing prospect that will be fun to dissect come Combine 2011' :cool:

What I took from it was that he is a fast learner, thats something you can not teach. I think every side has there points on this one and we need not make assumptions at this point but to say Cam is not a student of the game would be silly. He is working his butt off right now to prove to everyone he should be the 1st pick in the draft.

What has Fairly done? Had a twitter chat...

Has any other QB put himself out there this much? I dont think so...

I'll say I came away from the workout more impressed with him than I was before, but it didn't answer many questions pertaining to whether or not he can play at the NFL level. I was pretty much what I expected to see, and that's all I'll say about it.

You have to understand that the other QBs know that a media workout means nothing in terms of their draft stock, it'll come down to game tape and private workouts.

Did you get a chance to speak with him?

I'll say the same thing here as I said there...

If you want to argue for Newton and be taken seriously, please do so without making accusations of racism for which you have no basis or evidence.

If you cannot, then you are essentially admitting that you're just not smart enough to debate on facts alone.

No. I'm more of a "In the shadows" type of person :)
