Will No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton live up to his enormous hype in the NFL, fulfilling that "icon and entertainer" status in just his first season under center for the Carolina Panthers?

Newton figures to be the future of the franchise, but it remains to be seen whether he'll be more like Kordell Stewart, worse than Akili Smith or excel at the level of Michael Vick and Steve Young. Mobile quarterbacks are very hit or miss since they need to have the right amount of pocket presence and playmaking ability.

With the lockout cutting into valuable time with his coaches, Newton does have the Panthers' playbook and has been sleeping with it, which is a sign he is not going to try to do it based off talent alone.

The question still remains though, how will the rookie do in the upcoming season? We will take a look at what should happen against what might happen if Newton plays in each game.
