Name: Cam Newton
Nickname: Killa’ Cam, Slashie

College(s): University of Florida, Blinn College, Mississippi State, Auburn University

Age: 21
Size: 6’6″ 250 lbs.

Bad habits: Constantly putting his name on stuff that doesn’t actually belong to him. Some examples include a laptop, a term paper, and Mount Lee. In his defense, they seemed like good ideas at the time.

Strength: Straight up wreckin’ shit.
Weakness: Showing his work.


40 time: Over or Under 4.6 seconds. What, you don’t bet on this stuff?

Favorite way to start a sentence: “I don’t want to sound arrogant but…”

Mainstream comparison: Teberger.
KSK comparison: LeBron James.

Who wants him: Washington, probably.
Who will take him: By my count there are eight teams in the top 10 that could possibly draft a quarterback. If I’m going to pick one I’ll go with…Tennessee.

Immediate impact: Some shitty team has a new savior.
Down the road: Falls just short of icon status, but manages to entertain.
