Possible Newton Backup?

26 posts in this topic

Check out this kid, Robert Griffin, out of Baylor. Would make a lot of sense as Cam's backup as the Gameplan wouldn't have to change much if he was to go down. He also could make a pretty good WR watch the play at the 6.15 mark. As of now probably is a mid to late round pick but if he keeps playing like he is he might sneak into RD 1 or 2.

Yeah he made a name for himself last year and is in the Heisman race this year. I don't think I'd use a 2nd round pick on a QB considering we have other needs.

Someone will take him early, because a team will think they can turn him into the next Cam Newton. QB with very good mobility, with a big arm.. I can see it now. Not worth the pick for a backup position.

McNabb will be the back up next season, just to get a ring. :D

I wouldn't either, I think that is where we address the DT position. I was thinking if he made it to the 4th. The kid has talent is all I can say and like I said he could make a pretty good WR as well.

No, actually, as of now, he is a first round pick, one of 4-6 qbs going to be taken in the first round this coming up year (lucky, jones, barkley, griffin, moore etc)

Probably. Something tells me he is going to have a Newton type year and go in the top 10 but I don't think he is worth that (even if we had a need). But who knows he could hit a wall and make it into day 3.

He is far more accurate of a passer than Newton was in college. And has wayyy better footwork in the pocket. AKA- he is a more polished qb.

He may go top 10 or even top 5, depending on the finish of his season and combine. Dude is flat out smart too, honors student..... (have done a lot of study on him for my radio show recently)

Kid is a stud. I think he has more TD passes this year than incompletions.....thats friggin absurd!

He's also 3-4 inches shorter and 20-30 lbs lighter. Nowhere near the prospect Newton was but he is intriguing.

    • Anything I do Panthers related by default. My poop is Panthers related.
    • I like MKG, we just have to understand what he is.  And that's a defensive stopper and rebounder.  He can be a solid starter on a championship level team, but it has to be in a situation like Dennis Rodman was in with Chicago.  He has to be surrounded with dynamic scorers that can compensate for his lack of scoring so he can focus on his defense and getting key rebounds.  Otherwise, his best fit is probably coming off the bench. The problem on this team is that we don't have the scoring threats to offset his deficiencies.  Even though Kemba is a good scorer, he's not a guy that can easily put up points in bunches.  He's probably a natural 15-18 point guy, not the 25-30 point guy MKG needs.
