Draft’s Fearsome Foursome

This picture says he possesses the intangibles

I wonder if Cam wore glasses on the field his football IQ would go up.

Below are the four draft prospects I believe teams will regret passing up:

1. Cam Newton, QB, Auburn: Just because he is an extraordinary physical specimen, does it mean he doesn’t have the smarts to become an elite QB?  Like LeBron, you have to question something when you are such an athlete with an out-of-this-world skill set.  With LeBron it’s his jump shot, with Cam it’s his intangibles.  Give me Newton’s size, speed, arm strength, and ability to win any day of the week.  He is the black version of Ben Roethlisberger, and if a team like Cincinnati or Arizona pass him up for Blaine Gabbert they will be regret it.  Lack of experience?  I’ve seen enough in one year championship-winning season from Cam at Auburn to convince me he’s going to be a franchise signal caller on Sundays.  He’s going to be a playmaker at the next level for whoever selects him; better yet, a winner, who will improvise and prolong plays, showing you a flair for the dramatic on the biggest stage.  Don’t believe, re-watch his impressive come from behind victory against SEC rival Alabama in Tuscaloosa last November.  Isn’t this what we want from a QB?

2. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon State: Pass him up because of his lack of size.  Ok, he’s not an every down back.  So what.  Nowadays, you need at least two, if not three backs to have a successful run game in the NFL.  No longer are workhorses the way to go.  So with Rodgers, you have a guy who has a knack for the end zone and is versatile enough to be your third-down back, slot receiver, and return guy.  I liken him unto a less explosive version of Dexter McCluster.  If he can show some durability in his rookie campaign, the sky’s the limit for this Beaver.

3. J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin:
