Support for Newton is growing fast

Gil Brandt, former director of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys and analyst for NFL.com, told the Star-Telegram that he would be surprised if Auburn's Cam Newton didn't go with the first overall selection in the draft.

Of course he may also be thinking that someone else will trade up to take him at number one if the Panthers weren't interested

If I was the Panthers GM, it would take an offer like Minnesota made for Hershal Walker to get me to part with that 1st pick.

Since I disagree with what MrBubba posted, I'm going to nitpick something absolutely retarded to show my displeasure.

MrBubba, you didn't use periods which is pretty much SCIENTIFIC evidence that Newton will be JaLOLus Russell v2 and you're stupid.

Well there you go, it's scientific. I guess that settles it.

I'm on board.

I have to admit, I'm starting to get there myself.

Scam's potential is HUGE. The bust potential is also HUGE. However, if there is a rookie wage scale in the new CBA, which I view as a near certainty, I say take him. The potential would be enough to make me pull the trigger if we can limit the amount of guaranteed money through a rookie wage scale. What has killed teams in the past with high draft picks busting is the amount of guaranteed money they have tied up in those contracts. You're literally risking the future of the franchise on that pick because it kills your cap situation if that kid is a bust. If that is no longer true and the money gets reeled in, then a guy like Scam becomes much more attractive IMO. I wouldn't want him at the type of money high picks have gotten in recent years. There's simply too much risk there. If we were paying that type of cash, I'd take Peterson. He's a much safer pick IMO and plays a high dollar position. I would say Green, but a WR just isn't worth the type of $$$ that the #1 pick has garnered in the past. Plus, a WR isn't going to help us with our current crop of QBs.
