Joe Theismann says Cam Newton’s not a first rounder


(David Goldman/AP)

“To be honest with you, and I’ve never said this any place else, I don’t think Cam Newton’s a first round pick,” Joe Theismann told Kevin Sheehan and Thom Loverro on ESPN 980 last week.

Hmmm. That’s not conventional wisdom.

“You’re talking about a kid that started one year of football,” Theismann said. “He’s rushed the ball a lot more than he’s thrown it. He hasn’t thrown the football a lot. And when he did throw at the combine, he was not impressive....I think the interview that he did with Jon Gruden showed another side of him that wasn’t impressive....I like all these [quarterbacks] as kids, but I’m talking about purely as football players, I think wherever you go, you’re stretching.”
