#1044974 Cam Newton Workout Phenomenal

Posted by KDawg004 on 12 February 2011 - 06:12 AM

To follow up on my earlier post I would not have given Clausen a first round grade. Well, maybe a late first round.

I did think that he was a great value where the Panthers got him however.

I also have it pretty close with Mallett and Gabbert and once I see more of Gabbert they could flip flop. Right now i would have them both mid to late first round. Newton of course I have top ten. I don't think Cam will make it out of the top 5 when it is all said and done. If we don't get him look out for Buffalo at number 3. They need to sell tickets and become relevant again, and some of the local press are eating Cam up (in a good way).

Right now Locker for me is second or third round although he likely will get drafted higher than that. Again it means squat but wanted to put it out there.

There's no way...even as much as you hate him now...can you say that you would have graded Mallett and Gabbert ahead of Clausen. Clausen looked dynamic and stopless albeit his WRs and TE bailing him outmost of the time. Which there lies the problems. Everyone was enamored with his footwork and poise they neglected the jump balls and throws his receivers adjusted to.

I admit I fell for it and thought we had the steal of the century. But, if you go back and watch the film that isn't the case. Mallett blows it when everything is on the line. He crumbles when it comes to crunch time and carrying the team on his back. That's not a franchise QB.

Gabbert on the other hand has all the tools. He lacks the most important part of the game though. Footwork, stand pat in the pocket while the play unfolds, read defenses, and go through your progressions. That all can be taught. A fellow by the name as Matt Ryan had some of the same problems. It worked out.

What's funny is they reverse the logic for Fairley.

I only wanted Luck, once in a decade type talent, sure, we need a QB but no one else is worth a first.

It isn't fair to compare Fairley with Suh! Suh was a once a decade type player! We NEED a DT and Fairley is RIGHT THERE!

But Fairley isn't a once in a decade type of player. You know who is? Green and Peterson. I started this thread to begin a discussion. Truth be told, those are my favorites right now (Peterson and Green). I see them as rare specimens and to top it off safe picks. Fairley not so much.

One example I'll give which admittedly I'm a bit bias towards is Allen Bailey. He might fall into the top of the 3rd and he had 7.5 sacks his junior year playing DT. Not to mention he is extremely raw. I believe you give him some time and teach him the ropes and his ceiling is as good as Fairley. I think Fairley has topped off.

P.S. the draft is a crapshoot so it's all moot.
