From Vic’s ongoing live chat:
Cam Newton is the first overall pick of this draft. He’s gonna cost a lot of money. That’s a gutsy pick. I’m not sure I would’ve made it.
Denver’s up. They get the plum pick, in my opinion, because they have their pick of the whole defensive crop.
The Panthers aren’t going to pay Cam Newton $50 million to sit the bench. The competition at quarterback (with Jimmy Clausen) will be short-lived.
Denver selects Von Miller. Hmmm. Gotta get the big guys. I don’t like that pick at all.
Newton is a major talent. He has a chance to be a star, but they keep showing video of him running and that’s not gonna happen or he’s gonna get hurt. He must, absolutely must, learn to be a pocket-passer, and he must stop throwing off his back foot. That’s the big concern I would have for him. He’s a back foot thrower.
