Cam Newton. The No. 1 pick in this past draft, although some people questioned it. Sounds like another QB who was taken first overall, doesn't it? That would be JaMarcus Russell.
Cam Newton has a lot of question marks coming into his rookie season, just as Russell did.
He could have a good career, or more likely, it could end up like Russell's. I'm talking football side of things here—Cam is smart enough to know not to get in the off-field trouble that JaMarcus did.
When you look at the two, they have some very similar characteristics.
