Posted on: February 28, 2011 6:44 pm

Cam Newton's struggles in the throwing session at the Combine Sunday has already been well documented. His strategy of reading a prepared statement and refusing to acknowledge the extent of the "mistakes" he made earlier in his career while at Florida has been hotly contested.

Even more of a concern, however, is that the reigning Heisman winner is also struggling answering football questions during team interviews at the Combine. has learned that at least two teams gave Newton poor grades for his "football character" following interviewing him at the Combine. Newton, according to league sources, had a difficult time drawing up plays and how to react to different defensive schemes when asked to work on the white board.

There is no denying Newton's potential, but his success in spread option offense much simpler than anything he'll see in the NFL continues to be his greatest challenge. Not all teams are convinced he has the ability to make the adjustment to the complex defensive schemes he'll see at the pro level.

Cam Newton "struggled" in some team interviews

Cam Newton would struggle with building a house with Lego blocks.  How do these supposed football experts think he will be able to handle a NFL offense or taking on a good NFL defense.  It's a joke that this guy is going to get paid millions for something he just won't be able to do, and that's be a good NFL QB.
