Is it still a smokescreen? According to Peter King, the Panthers have requested game tames of Cam Newton from Blinn College — the college where Newton led the team to a National Junior College Athletic Association championship.

We’ve been speculating that the Cam Newton interest has been a smokescreen, with the purpose of trying to entice another team to trade with Carolina in exchange for picking up more picks.

This latest development shows that there is some genuine interest in Newton.

What do you think? Would you be happy with Newton as the Panthers first overall pick?

  • I really think the Panthers are going to draft Cam Newton. Do I think they should? No. But I think they will.

    I won't be disappointed. I think it'll be exciting to have a guy like Cam to follow, but I think that first pick could be better utilized.

    Ultimately I think they'd prefer to trade down, but I don't think they'll find a suitable partner.
