2011 NFL Mock Draft: Washington Takes Their Luck with Cam Newton
Will Washington Grab Heisman Winner Amid Controversies Surrounding his Image?
There isn’t much that can be said about Cam Newton that hasn’t already been said. He had one of the most incredible seasons in college football history. His numbers were astronomical and he helped lead Auburn to a BCS Championship in his first and only year on campus.
People often bring up his off-field antics while at Florida and the possibility of taking illegal benefits while at Auburn but that doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of his on field skills.
Now Newton did struggle at the combine and that is going to call his place into question. Not only did fail to impress with his accuracy throwing the ball but he also apparently didn’t impress with his interviews.
However the Washington Redskins aren’t the type of organization to shy away from a guy because of a few character defects.
After the snafu surrounding Donovan McNabb this year the Redskins will need a quarterback and Newton is the type of guy that Mike Shanahan likes to gave running his offense.
