Tuesday is Auburn’s pro day.

What a great opportunity for a bunch of up-and-coming football players.

Like this one kid, Cam Newton.

Ever heard of him?

Anyway, he’s throwing alongside some other ex-Tigers, all looking to impress NFL scouts.

Sounds like a pretty daunting task, but this Newton guy has plenty of confidence.

“Ain’t 32 [quarterbacks] better than me,” the plucky youngster said in a video posted on social media Monday. “You dig?”


Sam Farmer’s crystal ball: NFL mock draft 2023 version 1.0. Farmer makes his first-round pick predictions.

With a positive attitude like that, he might just make it in the league.

Maybe he’ll be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Who has that pick again? Oh, yeah, Carolina. Can’t you just picture Newton in Panther Blue?

Maybe then he’ll be named offensive rookie of the year.

And later maybe even league MVP.

And then lead the Panthers all the way to the Super Bowl.

Hopefully his career won’t later be derailed by injuries.

Now that the Carolina Panthers have acquired the No. 1 pick from the Bears, a look at which teams might select the top four quarterbacks in the draft.

And hopefully he won’t end up out of the league before he’s ready.

But, if that does happen, maybe he’ll get to take part in Auburn’s pro day 12 years after the first time, in hopes of getting another shot at the NFL.


Wouldn’t that be something?
