Most folks are split down the middle on Cam Newton‘s future in the NFL.
ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper did just that on Wednesday while hosting a conference call with the media.
“He was a one-year wonder. Akili Smith was a one-year wonder,” Kiper said.” “If you hit (on Newton), you could have a sensational quarterback for ten years. (But) if you miss, it sets you back three, four, five years.”
In case you need a refresher on how bad Smith was, the former No. 3 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft was 3-14 as a starting quarterback and his touchdown-to-interception was 5:13.
Jeez, Mel. Tell us how you really feel about Cam.
