Analysis

DEPTH CHARTS FEATURE - What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said before CAM NEWTON made the Carolina Panthers' depth chart: Auburn, 6050, 248, 4.59. Junior entry. One-year starter. Junior college transfer. Started career at the University of Florida. Won the junior college national championship at Blinn (TX) Junior College in 2009. Runs the spread, no huddle, run first edition. Confident and aggressive in his play. Runs the dive and read option. Quick up the field when he runs the ball. Big and strong. Uses the stiff arm to ward off tacklers. Physical in the run game. Can take and give a hit. Runs the ball out of the Wildcat. Can avoid defenders in space. Question ability to pre-read, sight adjust, and locate secondary receivers. His field vision and awareness are not readily evident. Runs the quarterback counter sweep and follows his blockers. Demonstrates an open field burst to run away from defenders. Can elude pass rushers. Tall enough to see over the line. Has a strong arm and fast ball when he needs it. Can zip the ball on a shallow post route or hit a receiver on a 25-yard comeback. Generally throws to wide open receivers. One flaw is that he stares down and locks on a receiver. Will sling the ball on the run off balance trying to make a play. Will need to learn all the nuances and fundamentals of the pro passing game - consistency, ability to anticipate windows in coverage, taking snaps from center and dropping to the throwing point, decision making, accuracy, balance and footwork in the pocket. The bottom line is that Newton is a big flexible right handed athlete who can make all the throws. Has some natural leadership qualities on the field. He also has mechanic breakdowns which cause the ball to drop or go high and away. A developmental quarterback with rare tools. Has some red flags that need to be addressed. Boom or bust prospect. 2010 stats: 2854 passing yds, 66.1%, 30 TDs, 7 INTs, 1473 rushing yds, 20 rushing TDs. Ball velocity 56 mph. OSR:3/18. First round talent. (A-33 3/4, H-9 7/8, SS-4.18, VJ-35).
