    Andrew Luck should go first, he was a potential number 1 pick in the eyes of the scouts and fans before the season started and he has lived up to that hype. Cam Newton had never been projected as a potential number 1 pick until the middle-end of this season and some of the scouts think he is being over hyped based on a season that might be great statistically but doesn't necessarily show the traits you look for in an NFL QB.

    Hopefully he won't be the next Russell, I assume he won't because Russell obviously had some serious off the field problems with drugs and should serve as a warning to Newton. Jason Campbell had to learn a new offense from a new coordinator every season and was with a horrendously run franchise in Washington so I wouldn't necessarily judge him so harshly and I doubt Cam Newton would end up in such a bad situation.

    I don't agree that "were all seeing what happened to Tebow" it is only a recent phenomenon to see rookie QBs getting playing time right away in the NFL and being successful usually it takes some time to develop and Kyle Orton is actually a pretty good QB so it makes sense for Tebow to back him up for a while. The NFL isn't like baseball where it takes 4-5 years to see if a draft pick panned out, but it also isn't like the NBA either where you can usually tell almost right away.

    I think teams are going to "play it safe" and go with Luck, I put that in quotes though because Luck was projected as a number 1 pick before the season and he's played very well so in my opinion it's a no brainer.

    I'm a huge Cam Newton fan but he could be an NFL bust. Coaching will be a big part of how well he does, but he has the potential to be a monster in the NFL. The knock Tebow had was that he wouldn't be able to run as well in the NFL, but Newton won't have that problem, he's essentially a Tailback who can throw.

    not trying to hate but sounds like u dont know alot about football

    first off u dont make a rookie qb a starter u let him learn the system for a couple years before u start him

    tim tebow is a project its not that he's not good enough to play there letting him learn the system

    tebow ran a spread offense in college the broncos dont he needs to learn a total different style of play

    they both have talent it just depends on were they go and how they choice to develop him

  • People seem to think Andrew Luck is the overall first pick of the draft. If that pick goes to the Panthers, who used a high draft pick to get Clausen last year, (who has not played well) will they do that again?
