Re: Cam Newton!!

I think Jake Locker's stock will rise, and Cam's will fall tremendously.

After watching the Championship Game, I wasn't too convinced that Cam could play QB at an efficient level.

In fact, he doesn't even look all that athletic. Sure he strong and fast. But, comparing him to Michael Vick? SMH...

Re: Cam Newton!!

But to say he's not even a 1st rounder? Pfffft.

He might be drafted in the first round, but I think that'll be a stretch pick and he'll be a bust. He has a college football skill set. I don't see the mental tools or the accuracy to succeed at the NFL level.

Now, as far as the mental side of things, he hasn't really had a chance to display whether or not he has those, so it doesn't mean he lacks them, only that it'll take time for him to learn them. He hasn't shown a lot of decisiveness against elite defenses... compared to college football, every NFL defense is elite.

The accuracy thing... maybe it's a mechanical issue that can be ironed out. Some QBs can develop accuracy with good coaching. Most can't. The NFL requires far better accuracy than the NCAA does. Windows are smaller, big plays tend to come after the catch, which doesn't happen if the receiver has to slow down or adjust to the pass.

I guess you was impressed with Lockers performance this season?

By the way, commenting on someones mental ability is appalling when used as a defense because one doesn't have an argument.

One game can't compare to the whole season of passing and running threw SEC defenses and I still don't think he played that bad of a game coming off a month layoff. He missed a few threws but you make seem as if he stunk up the joint. He made big runs and throws in that game.

Re: Cam Newton!!

This thread stopped being about Madden awhile ago and there are plenty of threads in both of the appropriate forums to discuss this.
