They're all pretty damn fast. And RG3's form is sooo much better, his track pedigree shows.

EDIT: Rich Eisen added, w/ 10 yard head start. Still gets pasted.

Yeah, the kids who ran track always standout. When the pads are on, juking, and field vision is what really matter. Cam clearly stands above them there.

Yeah, to quote some scouts, RG3 was super fast but for some reason had a knack for running towards defenders. Field vision is a necessary ingredient, and Cam's is downright ungodly.

Last season when Cam took off and ran...how many times did he have a chance to get that kind of speed up? once?

Speed is nice, but not so necessary for a QB.

RGIII will be like Vick to a degree.....yeah, he is fast but health will always be a concern. He isn't built to run at this level.

RG3 is a MUCH better passer than Vick, though.

I honestly think we'll be seeing the three QBs in this animation for a long time to come.

If they end up being the cream of this QB generation we better be thankful we nabbed ours :cam:

He still has question marks. Good deep ball but he really didn't make the type throws in college the NFL asks.

Cam carrying his height and weight that quickly is what I take away from this. RGIII ran an impressive 40 and his track experience shows up plain as day in this clip. If RGIII can throw as well as advertised, he will make a bigger splash than Vick did. They are far more comparable than RGIII and Newton IMO. Big question now is who ends up with RGIII and how well they develop him. I think Carolina did a top notch job with Cam through season 1.

Have you watched him play?

You are describing Newton at auburn to a T and saying it's why another guy won't be successful.

Also looks like RGIII gained his edge between 10 and 20 yards. After that burst the separation remained the same.

speed isn't everything, what makes Cam such a good runner is his combination of balance and grace.

I did watch him.

There are questions about him as a passer. Him needing to answer them doesn't mean he can't do it......but there are unknowns.
