unexpected, but believable write up on Cam Newton from a draft guide.

Under "negatives" for Newton, Nawrocki writes, "Very disingenuous ó has a fake smile, comes off as very scripted and has a selfish, me-first makeup. Always knows where the cameras are and plays to them. Has an enormous ego with a sense of entitlement that continually invites trouble and makes him believe he is above the law ó does not command respect from teammates and will always struggle to win a locker room . . . Lacks accountability, focus and trustworthiness ó is not punctual, seeks shortcuts and sets a bad example. Immature and has had issues with authority. Not dependable."

Cam Newton is Tim Tebow minus two years of elite collegiate production, a Heisman, a second national championship, and unquestionable character, work ethic, and dedication.

But he does add a nice "pay to play" scandal and a daddy who likes to be real involved.

Cam Newton: Top 5 pick. Tim Tebow? Same people who love Cam think he shouldn't have been a first round pick at all.

Its going to be awesome in a few years when Tebow is a beast and Cam Newton is the next Vince Young/Fatty Russell.

i have been saying ever since the hype about how he was going to change the QB position forever in the NFL, that there was no chance in hell he becomes an elite QB in the league. the Tebow comparisons are ridiculous, sure they came from the same offense and had success in it winning a heisman and national championship, with a similar playing style, but the intangibles Tim has that he will use to make himself into a very good or even elite QB Cam lacks.

if you are looking at a guy who has the potential to possibly alter the QB position in the NFL, it is Tebow.

This. The best thing about Newton is that Carolina wants him. If he goes first, Schefter is even better than I thought he was....

They contacted George Whitfield, Newton's quarterbacks coach.
http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/George-Whitfield-on-Cam-Newton-Hes-infectious-the-guy-is-genuine.html

What's your reaction to the characterization of Cam Newton?

Whitfield: "The first thing I would say is: How would he form that impression? It's one thing to talk about his tangible attributes and another thing altogether to write what he wrote. To me, there's got to be a line between speculation and recklnessness. I read it. There is criticism and skepticism as to how genuine he is when he smiles. Wow, itís gone past anything with traction. This is an individual who has taken the opportunity to slam Cam up against the wall in a way so that people remember this piece. Now, youíre beyond having a pragmatic approach. There has to be an agenda for this article.

"Here's a 21-year old guy who has worked his way to get to this point and his smile is being called into question about how genuine he is is. And they're calling him a selfish guy. None of that is based on anything that's factual. If you compile what was said about Cam last couple of years of his life, I donít know how you can get those results. Mr. Nawrocki probably has an Alabama cap on his head when he's writing that stuff. If it's a responsible, professional writer sober in his own office desk, I don't see how he comes up with this. I just wonder how pragmatic he is."

What kind of person is Cam Newton?

Whitfield: "As a person, heís the kind of guy you want in any situation. I know heís gone through some real growth from the time he was a freshman in college, same as I did. He couldnít be more genuine and infectious with people. People see that. When we trained at UC San Diego, he got to know all these student workers on campus and knew them all by name and would ask them how they did on exams. He spent hours at a childrens hospital with no media around and got to know three young boys with chronic illnesses. He spent a lot of time with a nine-year-old boy with chronic arthritis. Nobody saw that. He didn't want anybody to see that. He went to an inner city school to talk to kids. People talk about Team Newton and say he has a posse. He does have a posse. It's his 12-year-old younger brother and his older brother and his mom and dad. It's called a family. His personality is infectious.

"He went through so much scrutiny this year with the sheer pressure of dealing with that NCAA investigation and came out and physically and mentally performed in all those situations and Southern road game environments. He never broke down or made excuses. He has that ability to compartmentalize and separate everything to what he's going through and heíll beat it. He has never had any issues with drugs or alcohol and he never missed classes at Auburn. A team drafting in the top five sent two private investigators to Auburn and they spent a week there They found out he never cut class. They found out he conducted himself very respectfully. They weren't scouts, they were investigators. They know how to ask questions. They found nothing derogatory. He comes from a God-fearing family. He's a good kid."

Whitfield has been working with Newton usually six days per week since January 24.

What kind of quarterback prospect is Cam Newton?

Whitfield: "As a quarterback, heís capable of everything. There are times you get a quarterback and you get a chance to work with him and you learn about him and learn some things he does well and some things he canít do. Some kids will never have power, accuracy and mobility, or some kids always have power and wonít be that agile. With Cam, itís like some kind of government experiment. There's nothing he canít do. He throws with power, throws with touch, the footwork of dropping back. He has the agility of an Allen Iverson in the open field, insane accuracy and an incredible work ethic. He's very tough. He takes everything with a lot of pride. Everything is like a personal competition with himself. If he missed a step in the ladder drill, he would take himself back and do it again. He always has that pilot light on."

How do you expect his game to translate into the NFL? There have been a lot of questions about the offense he played in at Auburn.

Whitfield: "Cam didnít necessarily play in that Auburn offense in high school, but he excelled in it. To do that, you have to have the talent and agility and footwork. He can be moved from system to system and fit in anywhere like how Ben Roethlisberger can play in the Steelers' offense and he can do what the Raiders do. Some guys can move from playbook to playbook. Cam is one of those guys with those physical attributes."

How about the mental aspect of the game? How sharp is this guy?

Whitfield: "In terms of his football acumen, the thing I'm most impressed about by spending time with him is how hungry he is to talk football and visualize and strategize about the game. When he first came to San Diego, we talked about the national championship game and he broke down the Oregon defense and what he visiualized on a napkin. He was indicating signs of coverages and he filled up five napkins. I knew right then we were going to be in a downhill sprint. This is someone who's excited to share his insights about the game.

"He's very candid about everything, about his reads. We got into a classroom seting and I was even more impressed. During the combine meetings, he expected them to ask him about coverages and football. The teams didn't ask about that. They wanted to know about the NCAA stuff and his dad. They wanted to know him as a person first. From these visits, we're getting a lot of great feedback about the football acumen."

How successful do you expect him to be in the NFL?

Whitfield: "To predict what he'll be going forward with these traits and intangible gifts, I think he's going to be very successful. He's a winner. He's got toughness, physical and mental toughness. He's got a lot of pride. This guy would play for free. I'm sure his agent just cringed. He loves diving head-first into linebackers. He can make four or five guys miss. Rain or shine, he's going to be there and you can count on him. You can trust him. Guys are going to love running out of the tunnel with him. He's going to hit the ground running. I think he's going to do great."

Trevor Garrison is the nine-year-old with juvenile arthritis that got to know Newton in the hospital this winter.

Diagnosed with the disease five years ago, Garrison has to get several rounds of injections to treat the ailment.

"Trevor didn't know who Cam was before we met him," David Garrison, Garrison's father, told NFP. "I showed him some clips of Cam on the computer and he got pretty excited. It was neat. Cam is a very chill guy, very interested in talking to Trevor and asking him questions. He was very humble. He made me a fan. Prior to that, all I had heard was the negative stuff. I became a Cam Newton fan for life.

"Trevor's doing pretty good right now, and meeting Cam meant a lot to him. Hopefully, the medicines will do their job. He made a huge impression on me. It was awesome. Now, I will always be a Cam Newton fan. I will always follow his career. The humbleness from him was totally genuine. It was special meeting him. We'll never forget it."

Not any successful quarterbacks though.

Totally unprofessional. Newton was probably a jerk to him and this writer is trying to hurt him. He's only hurting his own reputation.

Everybody knows what the difference is between Tebow and Newton and it has nothing to do with football or their college careers. The White QB was torchured coming out college while the less productive black QB is being talked about like the number one overall pick.

Speaking the truth is unprofessional?

Narwocki's reputation isn't going to be hurt at all. He's one of the best in the business.

Feel sorry for the team who drafts Newton. (Get him Carolina!)

.....

I didn't really see a whole lot in that interview that refuted any of the criticisms.

Cam Newton right now to me comes down to his media day pseudo workout which was a blatant media stunt with no football relevance at all and I would go as far as saying it was time wasted from practice that he clearly needed that he spend getting his face in the media and landing endorsement deals, and his passing workouts, he wasn't impressive at the combine and his results from his own pro day were quite middle of the road.

I get the sense that Newton wants to be a star, I don't think he much gives a crap about how he achieves that and I fear that once you put that million dollar check in front of him and stick his face on tv a lot, he is going to be satisfied.

THIS!!

I'm tired of everbody comparing Tebow and Newton, playing QB at any level is about showing up and winning, delivering on what your supposed to do, win.

Tebow has done this on every level he has played and wasnt given a damn thing, he worked for it.

I hope i'm wrong but my gut says C. Newton= V. Young

AJ Green:

Weaknesses: Can be prone to drops. Questionable lower body strength. Often lackadaisical when it comes to weakside blocking. Has an alarming smile, as if he just got back from sodomizing your toddler and knows you donít know it yet. Has a sexual fetish for women with hairy arms. Smells like a tire swing. Bitched when there wasnít a volleyball station at the Combine. Once told friends his father was a king and that his family lived in a castle. Told this lie at age 8, which suggests a long history of not being truthful. Has Rebecca Black listed in the ARTISTS section of his iPod, which suggests he either likes Rebecca Black, or is so submissive to his girlfriend that he ceded control of the iPodís library to her. The fact that he didnít delete it off his iPod prior to our routine scouting seizure suggests frequent mental lapses.

Ryan Mallet:

Weaknesses: Prone to turnovers. Footwork is spotty at best. Seems to play best only in smallest moments. Drinks heavily. Smokes weed. Brushes teeth with crack. Has a gray penis, which is always a troubling sign. Standoffish. Rude. Arrogant. Still ices other bros. Once bragged that he ****ed a 14-year-old in the back of a Pizza Hut while her birthday party was going on in the event room. Transfer student. Probably a freak. Bet he listens to The Cure a lot. Eats spaghetti with his hands. Stole my girlfriend. No lie. One day she tells me she wants to break up with me, then I see her two days later hanging out with this ****face at Sonic. And it was clear that this had been going on for a while. WHY WOULD YOU DO ME LIKE THAT, APRIL? I know I wasnít the perfect boyfriend, but to leave me for that guy? YOU VICIOUS ****.

Von Miller:

Weaknesses: Overpursues and can get caught flat-footed on trap plays. Joined the NFLPA lawsuit against the NFL, which suggests he has a problem with authority. Probably will lead a mutiny against your coach, then steal your coachís wife and claim her as his own. Communist. Marxist. Leninist. Hitlerist. Watched The Motorcycle Diaries and adored it. Big fan of Tommy Craggs. Probably reads way too much. May have ďideasĒ for how to scheme things, like a little know-it-all bitch. Will require ďre-education,Ē if you catch my drift. Severe re-education, including the Schlereth Urine Torture.

Nick Fairley:

Weaknesses: Lazy. Lazy. LAZZZZYYYYYY. Took 47 hours to exit his motherís womb during childbirth. Once refused to get off the Bubba Tub at Wet Ní Wild even though the park was closing at dusk. Has never once put his plate in the sink after eating. Just leaves the plate there, expecting the goddamn magic fairies to clean it up. Says heís on your way to your party when heís still at home and hasnít even showered yet. Was once hospitalized with exhaustion after reading a TV Guide. Shoots at canned goods to open them. Will refuse to give you driving directions even if he knows precisely where youíre going.

Blaine Gabbert:

Weaknesses: Homosexual. Obvious from first name. Slurps down cum like itís fresh milk. Slow to get to third and fourth reads because too busy thinking of hot, gorgeous men with thick, steely thighs and beautiful hard cocks. Probably steals quick glances at cock in the locker room. Canít be trusted alone in a room with a receiver after meetings.

Da'Quan Bowers:

Weaknesses: Violent. God, heís just so terribly violent to people he loves. You should see him make his girlfriend fly across the room. Sheís just a little, delicate thing. Yet he beats on her as if sheís made of oak. The drinking. The mood swings. Catch him on the wrong day and you feel as if youíve walked into a cyclone. Once chained a dog to his bed and whipped it with a copper wire. Then again, you gotta love a player with a nasty streak.

...Nolan layin' the wood.
