Default NCAA fans: What do you think of Cam Newton?

Guy is apparently ripping up the SEC, tops there both in rushing yardage and passer efficiency. Has Auburn squarely in the hunt for the SEC and BCS Championships. Unfortunately, I've only seen him on highlights. So I'd like to know what more knowledgable people think of him, both as a Heisman candidate and as a future pro (can he play QB, can/should he be converted to something else, or is he just another limited college running QB).

What do I think of him? I think he should be 2nd in Heisman voting...behind THIS guy:














Seriously though, like you, I can't really give a clean review. I've only seen one full Auburn game this year (vs Clemson I think).

Very Tebow-ish in that his game is built on his power running. They don't ask him to throw any NFL routes. Everything is to open receivers; no anticipatory throws. He's accurate enough, but it's a whole different skill set at the next level. Very slow throwing motion.

He's a college stud, though, the best individual offensive player I've seen this season, and the only reason a very limited Auburn team is having this success.

Does he have the footspeed to be turned into an end or receiver?

Default Re: NCAA fans: What do you think of Cam Newton?

I don't know about his footspeed to play WR in the NFL but probably could play TE.

He hasn't sold me as an NFL QB prospect, yet. Not even close, even though the guys on CBS who have a constant boner for him were raving about his future as an NFL QB.

Like JMT said, he's not having to make tough throws because teams are stacking the box and spying on Newton and not paying much attention to the Auburn WR's and TE's. Most of his passes are to wide-open targets. While I don't think his throwing motion is as broken as Tebow's, he will still need some work on it to be effective as an NFL QB.

Absolutely, but he can really throw the ball down field so he'll most likely be given a shot to play QB in the NFL. How many snaps he gets at WR/RB/TE while trying to develop as a QB will obviously be determined.

Straight baller. I tune in to every Auburn game now to watch him play dude is amazing. I also wondered about his potential pro prospects but it seems to me that he has work ethic, and an abundance of physical tools so... I'm sure he figure out a way to be successful.

I see him as a Josh Freeman-Vince Young hybrid.

Default Re: NCAA fans: What do you think of Cam Newton?

Cam Newton is the LeBron James of College Football. 35 touchdowns already with 2 regular season games and possibly 2 post-season games to go. i think he'll end up winning the Heisman, but im one of those guys that think you should wait until the end of the season to vote.

he leads the SEC in rushing....as a QB! he has the highest QBRating in the nation (technically he doesnt, but the 5 guys above him 1. hasnt even attempted over 6 throw and 2. one is his backup). and he has 20 passing-15 rushing TDs..his numbers are ridiculous

even though Auburn is my fave team, any casual fan could tell that this guy should be the Heisman.

as for an NFL future. he's be the next Vince Young or he'd get converted to Tight End. he has enough speed to play TE and he's 6'6. idk about his hands though, even though he did catch a TD this year.

Default Re: NCAA fans: What do you think of Cam Newton?

Additional question: Does anyone care whether Auburn is paying him or not? Do we care about athletes getting paid off in general anymore? There was probably some local backlash in Cali but I don't know anyone that really cares about the Bush scandal beyond making small jokes.
