Panthers Coach Ron Rivera Convinced Auburn QB Cam Newton Is Top-Pick Worthy

Panthers coach Ron Rivera told Cam Newton’s adviser Warren Moon that he’s “convinced” the Auburn quarterback is a good enough passer to be worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

“I’ve seen all I need to see as far as him throwing a football,” Rivera told Moon. “I’m already convinced.” Moon emerged from the conversation believing that Carolina is “sold” on Newton, and that they’ve “locked onto” him as the top pick in the draft. “It’s just a matter of whether they want to go defense or offense,” added Moon. “If they go quarterback, it’ll be Cam.”
