Appearing on CBS Radio in Charlotte Friday, Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney defended Auburn quarterback Cam Newton against Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki’s brutal scouting report on the 2010 Heisman winner.
“I don’t pay much attention,” said Hurney. “(Nolan Nawrocki) has never met Cam Newton. So who’s he talked to? He says he’s talking to decision makers. We have the No. 1 pick. He hasn’t talked to me.” Hurney is a known backer of Jimmy Clausen, but he went out of his way to defend Newton against Nawrocki’s attack. Added Hurney, “(Nawrocki) did his job, he’s selling books.”
