Lets be honest, Cam Newton is a BIG risk. Especially considering that there is still not rookie salary cap still in place. There are much less risky players in this draft(Peterson, Green) Even if Cam Newton is a star, I can see him easily jetting to a bigger market as soon as his rookie contract is done in a couple of years.
We have the hardest schedule in the nfl this upcoming season. Chances are, we will be in the same position next season. The only difference is that there will be a franchise quarterback available that will be worthy on a number 1 pick. In the mean time, I think we should continue to put together a team for Luck to take charge of once her is drafted by us. In the meantime, we should let Clausen take the rains and let him develop into a backup....he might even surprise everyone and become a legitimate NFL QB...your thoughts?
