horrible comparison. Alex smith dreams about having cam newton's arm. Accuracy is yet to be seen you act like cam threw 40 picks last season. As far as athletic ability, yes i know alex is looked at as a mobile qb but,really how many highlights have you seen of him dodging the pass rush and picking up 20 yards?
I think your still hurt the pick isn't gabbert.
You are kidding right? Alex Smith is the perfect comparison.
Alex Smith had a huge arm coming out, maybe not as big as Newtons, but damned close, go read his scouting reports. Also, Jamarcus Russel has a bigger arm than Newton.
Cam Newton has very mediocre accuracy, I watched him play, I have watched highlights, when he hits those deep throws they are to wiiidddee open receivers 90% of the time. Maybe you missed the combine where he overthrew just about every pass without pressure, no pads, and non covered receivers. Or his pro day where he missed 10 passes also under the same circumstances, only more scripted, I could make those passes without pressure.
As far as highlights of him breaking college player tackles and running away, I can't find any for Alex Smith due to the limited amount of college video of him on youtube, but I can find you Vince Young, Pat White, Troy Smith, and plenty of other shitty nfl qbs who did.
Just about every scouting report says the same thing about Alex Smith and Cam Newton. Except Newton gets knocks for attitude, and character issues, where as Smith does not. Not to mention Smith was the better passer.
So my friend that works within the organization who told me Cam Newton would be the pick is singing a different tune. Apparently the word around the Panthers organization is that Cam was not impressive in his interviews/workouts, and the Panthers will not draft him.
Now he says this is not direct information as he had almost nothing to do with Cam's interviews and what not (Only three people did I assume), but the word circulating around is that Cam will not be the pick.
The pick is not going to be Gabbert, the pick is not going to be Mallett, Green, Locker, Dareus, PP, or Fairley.
I talked to an inside source earlier this evening and well, he is about 90% sure the Panthers are taking Newton. He isn't the highest player on their board but apparently they have pretty much fallen in love with him.
In my three years of knowing him as a source he has been wrong about only one thing the Panthers have done, and no, this isn't some bull poo "My cat is the inside source."
Here you go, you all knew it was coming. Also, yes this does belong in general discussion because who puts the mock drafts in the draft section? Pft.
1. Carolina Panthers Andrew Luck
The best qb to come out of the draft since Jesus Christ himself stepped foot upon the grassy field. He has the arm of Jamarcus Russell (if there was an actual rocket attached to his arm), the mind of Peyton Manning (if he were Einstein), the speed of Michael Vick (with rocket ice skates on frozen butter), and of course the accuracy of BP's risk management group. How do you not pick him, they should probably even trade up into round 2 just to draft him again for safe measure.
2. Denver Broncos Goku The ultimate defensive prospect, he can play the super saiyan 1 technique, super saiyan 2 technique, super saiyan 3 technique and of course the all important giant ape technique, lord knows that is the only way to get through that beast of a tackle that the Raiders have in Jamarcus Russell.
3. Buffalo Bills Plaxico Burress
I'll be honest here, they need to win now, and the only way to do that is if they draft Burress and have him shoot the corner covering him in the leg every play. Can you say Ryan Fitzhattrick?
4. Cincinnati Bungals Carson Palmer
Brown is a smart guy and he won't play Palmers game, "Go ahead and retire Carson, I'll just draft you again and you'll have to play for me forever. Take that ya bum" Now that is dedication...
Another player stuck in Mike Brown's evil clutches for the rest of his career.
5. Arizona Cardinals No one.
They also cut everyone on the team, Ken is incredibly convinced that Fitzgerald can win it all on his own, and I am not one to doubt head coaches!
