Mac Attak 1/20/12: CBS College Sports analyst Aaron Taylor talks to the guys about Cam Newton and the comparisons Robert Griffin III is drawing to him. Taylor also chimes in on Dre Kirkpatrick, and Notre Dame recruiting.
Aaron didn’t think Cam would be so good in the NFL so quickly. The Biggest difference in having Cam on your team is that he always makes the win total go up. He has a tremendous ability to maintain a high level of play no matter what distractions are going on around him.
When asked to compare Cam and RG3 of Baylor, he says that Griffin throws one of the most beautiful deep balls he has ever seen. Griffin is a thrower first and runner second at this point of his development. Cam was the opposite last year around draft time.
Aaron thinks that Dre Kirkpatrick of Alabama may have cost himself a lot of money with his recent pot bust. With the amount of money players get now, he has now raised many questions in teams minds. He has made the background check that teams do much more difficult.
