Cam Newton to the Bengals would be Legendary

Posted: March 10, 2011 in Uncategorized

If you have read my blog before you would understand the title right off the bat as I am constant berating the Bengal organization and have also previously mentioned my thoughts that Cam Newton is being drafted too high.  In Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft, he has the Bengals drafting him at the 4th spot.  I don’t put a ton of emphasis on these guys mock draft besides Mike Mayock’s but this one struck because of the joke factor.  If the Bengals were ever to draft Newton, you might as well put him in the Jamarcus Russell/Ryan Leaf category.  Cam Newton needs to be drafted lower and to a team that would not need him to play right away.  This is not the guy you would want to see fail because I think he would go in the tank fairly quickly because of his ego.  This kid has never failed as he has played 2 years of college ball where he won the Junior College national championship in 2009 and this past season brought Auburn to the national championship and won.
Don’t get me wrong there would be plenty of material for me if he does go there but I truly want to see what this kid can do in the future when brought into the league properly.  Oh on a quick side note, Mel Kiper has Blaine Gabbert going number one in the draft.  Once again, I don’t put a ton of stock into these mock drafts but somebody(me) mentioned that he would go number one long before any of these draft experts, so if it happens expect a little bit of boasting since I don’t have any of the connections or experience these guys do.  If you want to see that post it is right here.
