Cam Newton, quarterback out of Auburn University.
I hate the fact that the Panthers will be choosing another quarterback after one year with their second-round pick.
Yes, Jimmy Clausen struggled, but what rookie thrown into the worst situation possible doesn't?
I think the Carolina Panthers are mistakenly convinced that Clausen is not the answer and will draft Newton.
If Newton was drafted later in the first round to a team that will give him the time to develop instead of throwing him into the fire early, then Newton would be a great pick. But the fact is that Newton will be the first player selected and put on a team that desperately needs receiver and O-line help.
I think that the Panthers will fall in love with Newton's upside and take him.
