As of right now almost every expert expects Cam Newton to go to the Carolina Panthers at the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, so the points in the article might be moot.

However there is a strong contingency of Redskins fans who want to see if the team can trade up to get him or if he falls to ten want the team to take him.

Obviously I do not fall into that category of fan. 

From the moment the Redskins entered into the category of possible landing spots for Cam I've been against it.

And believe it or not it has nothing to do with character issues.

Just about every team in the league has a guy at a skilled position with character issues.  That's just a way of life in the NFL
