And to all the folks saying that no draft prospect has ever been treated like Newton before, I have to ask, are your memories really that short? :sosp:
Dolphins GM asks Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute
Dez Bryant was actually suspended for games unlike Newton, even though that question was still uncalled for you can't compare that to Newton who has not been CONVICTED of any thing criminal besides the fact that he BOUGHT a stolen lap top (He did not want to rat out the guy he bought it from which is why many belive he stole it.) On top of that Newton did not have a troubled past or troubled background.
When you are looking to draft a prospect you usually can't go wrong by looking at the players drive, ability, and athleticism. Unfortunatley, NFL scouts and analysis have shied away from this technique.
