My cousin was talking with Sal Sunseri (former Panthers defensive line coach from 2002-2008, current Alabama linebackers coach, SI's 2011 recruiter of the year) and he said that Cam Newton is the best football player he's ever seen. He was more worried about him than he was worried about Michael Vick when Vick was shredding the Panthers for that stretch of time.

I already had Cam Newton and AJ Green right there for who I wanted at #1, but this solidified it for me. So long as he has a great combine as expected, the list of reasons why we should pick someone else over Newton at #1 will diminish to basically zero. He has the potential to be a franchise-saving player that's going to be like a defibrillator for everyone: front office, team, fans, etc.

So anyway, I put a lot of stock into what Sal Sunseri says. He's seen the best and has no reason to prop someone from Auburn of all places, especially not to my cousin.

As long as you and your cousin are convinced we can all relax. Have you told Hurney, Rivera, and Chudzinski this yet?

No need. Every day that goes by, vibes keep coming from the organization that Newton is the one they're highest on.

I'm also joining you in hoping that we use our #1 overall pick on Green or Newton. I think they're both special players, and either one of them will be dominating in our uniform for a long time. I wont be upset with Green or Newton. Cam being the face of our franchise is something that really intrigues me, though. He'd bring a new excitement(not to mention more fans) to the Carolinas. I haven't bought a jersey in years. Lol, I can honestly say if we drafted Cam, I'd order a Newton jersey as soon as they were available if he came here :lol:

It's been well-documented that I have a fan club here that apparently hangs on my every word. So I thought I would just officially spell out what the people want.

Welcome aboard the Newton train. I hope you will help us in this constant battle that goes on everyday with some of the knuckleheads around here. We need all the help we can get.

The best football player he has ever seen? Considering he has first hand experience of some of the all time greats (Manning, Brady etc) I have a sneaking suspicion that this comment has been blown out of proportion.

You can't compare any college player to one of the NFL greats before they take a snap in the NFL.

However, I am not surprised you have decided to make a sweeping statement, you never make these kind of predictions :rolleyes:

I've got no problem with Newton #1. His physical tools are unlike anyone else that has come out in a long time. If the only thing holding him back is time in a pro offense then let him sit, learn, and then take over. Bring him up like teams used to by letting them sit and not throwing their feet to the fire too soon. If we do that then I see no reason why he couldn't succeed.
