Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon, who is also a personal advisor for Cam Newton, is convinced that the Carolina Panthers are sold on the Heisman trophy winning signal caller.
In an interview with USA Today, Moon said he feels the Panthers, who hold the top overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft are going to take Newton first overall if they determine that offense is what has to be addressed first.
“I think they came away very impressed with the kid,” Moon said. “It’s just a matter of whether they want to go defense or offense. If they go quarterback, it’ll be Cam.
“I’ve heard from three different guys, head coaches and general managers that’s he’s one of a kind. Cam’s one of those you can’t pass up on him. Those are pretty strong comments when you consider all of the great quarterbacks who have come into this league for them to say he’s one of a kind.”
According to Newton’s agent, he’s meeting with the Panthers today (Tuesday) and Wednesday.
