Colby Cameron - Carolina Panthers QB Prospect

May 12 2013 06:42 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
Better know a prospect: Quarterback Colby Cameron - 6'2 210lbs out of Louisiana Tech.
Hometown: Newberry Park, California
Signed as Undrafted Free Agent by the Carolina Panthers

Colby Cameron is known as an excellent decision maker. He currently owns the NCAA record for passes thrown without an interception at 444 passes. This broke the record of a guy named Russel Wilson. Cameron won the 2012 Sammy Baugh award as the nation's top passer. The award had been previously won by guys like John Elway and Steve Young.

Colby compares himself to another California native... Aaron Rodgers.

The Carolina Panthers have brought in two young prospects to compete with Jimmy Clausen for the third string QB position. Colby Cameron and Matt McGloin will take snaps throughout the offseason OTAs. While McGloin was brought in well after the draft, Cameron was signed as an Undrafted Free Agent which suggests his stock may be a bit higher than McGloin's.

Colby Cameron Carolina Panthers Rookie Camp

During rookie camp, Cameron had mixed reviews. While his mechanics and arm strength appeared to be up to par, his accuracy was a tad off. Of course, this is to be expected as he is throwing to guys he just met the day before. Cameron has a few months to prove to the coaching staff that he can replace Jimmy Clausen and help save a bit of cap room in a season that every penny counts.

Typically the Carolina Panthers keep 3 or 4 quarterbacks in training camp, which may mean that either Cameron or McGloin won't make it past either OTA's or possibly even rookie camp.

Dude looks like a Qb.

It would be nice to develop some trade bait.

Someone should let him know that Homeland is filmed in Charlotte and in need of Stand-ins...

He looks like Captain America. Give this man a contract!

Cut Clausen now

Really hope we roll with 2 QBs on the 53. And keep one of these young guys on PS.

Sounds like a plan to me. Jimmy was inactive for much of last season, hard to see what value he brings.

Please get Jimmy and Armanti out of here, the Hurney era is over.

None. He's Probably only a slight upgrade over the rooks. And that's just because he's actually played in an NFL game. IDK why Jimmy hasn't been sent packing yet.

The QB room is all i can think possibly think of, but it's possible he sucks at that too.

ok so, why wasnt he drafted?  whats his down side?

Yeah, Jimmy is a reminder of how we got Cam Newton. Guy needs to be sent packing, and honestly, I would just cut him now and not waste the time and energy (of both the team and of Clausen) to put him through our TC.

 

We have DA as the solid #2 anyway, the #3 should be a prospect that we believe has the ability to develop into something substantial. Jimmy showed is in 2010 what he could manage to do, and he had an entire season to showcase his abilities. He never improved, so I see no reason to keep him around even for TC.

Super Bowl!!!

He has QB hair, therefore he is > Pickles.  'Nuff said.

looks like he went to super cuts before camp

 

Zod, 2 recent threads about Panther QB Prospects.  Why do I get the feeling you dont believe in Cam?

Here's his draft analysis from nfl.com-

 

"Strengths

Great efficiency and production. Possesses some athletic ability. Smart, doesn't make many mistakes. Team leader. Quick release, and shows good anticipation. Throws a tight spiral, and has some surprising velocity on outside and intermediate patterns. Has good touch when dropping the deep ball in the bucket.

 

Weaknesses

Lacks prototypical size for the position. Arm strength is lacking. Will struggle to fit the ball into tight windows or to drive the ball downfield. Many of his reads were pre-determined and included easy completions. Only one full season of great production.

 

NFL Comparison

Case Keenum

 

Bottom Line

Cameron won the Sammy Baugh award in 2012, which is awarded to college football's top passer. Cameron doesn't make mistakes with the football, and has a nice, quick release. However, he lacks the physical tools to ever be a starting caliber quarterback at the next level."

 

 

 

Seems like a good backup candidate as long as he doesn't have to run the team long term.

He's the best clip board holder and joke teller in the league

You miss his greatest asset to the team. Those spreads he puts out for meetings. He is the main reason Cam GAINS during the season.

He sucks

Honestly, this is probably a terrible offense for him to try to play/compete in.

 

He would have been better off to go to a short passing O like a west coast or something like the Pats run.

 

That is unless Shula is planning on doing something very different.

Hell he has to be better than pickles.

A player like Cameron is important because we can cut him, slip him onto the PS, and go with 2 QBs on the roster. We do not need a roster spot holding a clipboard and giving Cam aerial body bumps when we score.  Cameron would be learning the system and doing just as much as Jimmy.

 

I am almost certain that is what this is about.  

Played against Clausen and Cameron in highschool. Both rival schools.
