9 teams schedule private workout with Cam Newton

The report on Cam Newton -- our No. 11-ranked NFL Draft prospect -- varies, depending on who you ask. Some people love him, some people hate him. But everyone's interested in potentially drafting him. Which is why there are a reported NINE teams scheduling private workouts with the Auburn quarterback.

That's according to Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald, who lists the following teams as having schedule workouts with Newton: the Panthers (first overall pick), Bills (third), Bengals (fourth), Cardinals (fifth), Browns (sixth), Titans (eighth), Redskins (10th), Vikings (12th) and Seahawks (25th).

So what you have there is a) a nice little list of everyone in the draft who needs a quarterback and b) a perfectly excellent example of just how insanely fluid Newton's draft stock is in 2011.

For instance, he's currently the No. 1 overall pick in both Rob Rang and Chad Reuter's mock drafts, but you don't exactly have to scour the Internet to see him potentially dropping as low as the mid-teens.

This is one reason why all of these teams are scheduling workouts with Newton -- he's an elite athlete and an interesting talent, but he's also not a stone-cold lock to go in the top-five picks, though it would be surprising to see him fall out of the top 10.

Oh yes, and there's this too: because there's a strong likelihood that there will be a rookie wage scale in place for the 2011 Draft (or, at least, in place for the signing of 2011 draftees), the Panthers top pick is immensely more valuable. People make comparisons of Newton to JaMarcus Russell, but those are a LOT less concerning when an investment in Newton doesn't equate to $60 million guaranteed.

That means that these teams have to see what Cam can do in a private setting and fully determine how much they want to invest in him, because he'll also likely be available via a trade with the Panthers or another team at the top.

ropers -

You are a shit human being.  You make me ashamed to be white.  Racism is the cause of probably 50% of the problems in our world.  The other 50% is probably an even split between religion and government.

People like you are a cancer upon our society and should be removed.

@tiredofcrap2,  you seriously need to go back and pay attention in school, your paragraph long rant doesn't even make sense.   Maybe you should get your head out of Cam Newton's jock strap and get an education so you don't end up a street rat begging for change.

You used a mock draft that predicted the Steelers would win the super bowl eh..

Gee, that's quite the source .

Whatever, screw the guy, sure there's no players to hype to high in this draft, but this crap is getting ridiculous..
