Dilfer: NFL will drool over Cam
"A few things jumped out at me," Dilfer said. "First of all, his physical prowess, his stature. I mean, Cam Newton is a giant, giant man. He dwarfed me, and I'm 6-4, 240 pounds. Just the presence was amazing.
"The other thing was how the ball jumped off his hand. This is a guy that has a powerful arm. George Whitfield, his quarterback coach, has done a masterful job, coaching him from the feet up. He showed great balance. He showed great foot energy, as he did drop back and take snaps from under center.
"The third thing is that he has quarterback-passer DNA, and that's the thing we weren't sure about him because he was such a great athlete. This is a guy that in his workout threw about 30 very challenging throws, and each one of those throws he kept his eyes down the center of the football field, spun his eyes back to the perimeter and delivered the ball early with anticipation.This is a gifted, gifted passer."
I like Whitfield, but I think Weinke might've had more of an impact on Cam than Whitfield did.
