08:50 AM ET 02.27 | According to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter, Cam Newton was less composed during one interview with a team Saturday. Schefter says a team asked him about when Newton didn't take a knee at the end of the BCS title game as instructed, instead sneaking the ball. Newton reportedly acted "didn't have a favorable reaction" and got defensive.

Some team will waste a first-round pick on this guy and regret it for years.

I second that emotion.

Agreed.

Oh No......TOOL ALERT!!!

All the numbers, the 40 time, the long jump, arm strength--one could say a fifty million dollar body. However, the unfortunate thing is there is a $5.00 control tower to go along with it.

And, no, I don't care how many of Cam's games you watched on tv. He's still going to be a bust.

Cincinnati picks fourth and Tennessee picks eight. I could see Mike Brown or Bud Adams wasting their picks, if not for the $$$$ that Newton and his daddy would want.

(I second that emotion - which version - Smokey Robinson's, Temptations, The Dead, or other?)

I think Cam will be a training camp holdout if his daddy doesn't think the $$$$ is right.

Anyone who drafts this clown in the first round has my vote for dufus of the year.

You don't spend a top 10 pick on a player that requires development. You spend a top 10 pick on someone who can come in right away and contribute. The media is just hyping this kid to garner readership. I think he'll do fine but it will take some time.

And some fool team MAY. The Bills most likely. It is questionable if he is even first round talent as an NFL QB.
I have NO sympathy for any team that drafts him thinking he is the answer. As one scouting report in a draft magazine I saw said " He is a thrower, not a passer." It looked like it the few times I watched him.

I guess his mechanics are not very good. sound familiar? He may be the third or later QB off the board.

And that is why "Cincinnati and Tennessee" have such a chitty pro football team!!

Let's see...this kid won a JC title, NCAA title in back to back years...and he probably thinks he's entitled to a super bowl title...don't see that happening unless he is drafted by a team that is already there.

I believe his dad is working on that deal as we speak...........

I would not draft this individual. He is the torch bearer for the Short on Ethics Conference otherwise known as the SEC. One a cheater always a cheater.

All of you holier than thou kind who have NEVER did anything wrong should get off this kids back. Most of you are jealous plain and simple. The kid played in the biggest conference, in the biggest games and even with all the hoopla going around he produced. what more do you zealots want? To those who say he's a role model to their kids and he should be doing this and he should be doing that, to you I say if your kid has to look past the dinner table to find a role model then you are one sorry parent and you're the problem not Cam........
