Re: How good of a pro do you think Cam Newton will be?
Nah, I don't think Pryor will ever take a snap as a QB in the NFL unless he's running a Wildcat. Newton is a much better passer, but we haven't seen enough to know if he's a good decision maker or not.
We've learned pretty clearly now that running QBs just aren't going to work in the NFL except in he rarest of exceptions. Newton is really good, but there have been plenty of guys just as good in history of college football who had a similar game to him, and very few of them have done much of anything in the NFL. Will he be an exception? It's possible, but I don't think we've seen enough yet to know.
I know one thing, he's not ready now. He needs another full season to develop IN COLLEGE. It's looking like that's not likely to happen.
I don't see any resemblance at all to McNair other than they're both black. Even in college, McNair was all pass. He could scramble OK, but he wasn't any better than most QBs in that regard.
