This is a very legitimate question as many teams may be reluctant to draft him. His recent comments have him sounding more like an “all about me” guy rather than a team player. We saw how that worked out for Vince Young in Tennessee. Keep in mind too, most favor Blaine Gabbert over Newton anyway.
If you ask me, he will wait a while because of the teams in position to draft him.
Panthers: Too many other dire needs to give up on Clausen already.
Broncos: They will go for defense.
Bills: ESPN’s Mel Kiper has Newton going to the Bills. As a Bills fan, I would be furious to hear his name on draft day. Name any position on defense and Buffalo needs help at it.
Bengals: They don’t fully believe that Carson Palmer is going to retire.
Browns: They have their chips on Colt McCoy.
49ers: New head coach Jim Harbaugh wants to keep Alex Smith.
Titans: Maybe, but as I said, they already have one Vince Young, they may not want another.
Cowboys: Romo isn’t done yet. They have other needs.
Redskins: Best chance. Shanahan hates McNabb and if you were to tell me Grossman is the guy, I would promptly laugh in your face.
There are the first ten picks. Does a team trade up to get him? If not, Cam could fall. Maybe he can work on his “icon” skills.
