If we are gonna take a project on I'd rather roll the dice with Newton. In my opinion he has a better chance of becoming like Young than Locker does. He is a winner in the SEC without a ridiculous amount of NFL talent around him (ie. Henandez, Murphy, Havin, Pouncey, or Lafell, Doucet, Hester, Williams), and without a dominant defense (he usually was bring the team back from a deficit, he couldn't hand it off to the workhorse RB and rely on the defense like Bama did last year.) On top of that he still was top 10 in all of college football in Comp % despite playing in the SEC and with his best WR not even being in the top 100 in receptions.
Plan A - Trade whatever it takes to get Luck.
Plan B - Get one of the two top corners and somehow get a veteran.
Plan C - Draft Newton. (Hopefully he doesn't take Luck's Wonderlic and write his own name on the test and then turn it in as his own.
Sorry I couldn't resist.)
