SAN DIEGO (AP) - Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton has given the
media a glimpse of the workouts he's going through daily as he
prepares for the NFL combine and draft.
Newton threw passes and did other drills for nearly 45 minutes
at a suburban high school on Thursday. He says he's working hard
"on the whole grand scheme of playing quarterback in the NFL,"
especially taking snaps from under center. He often took snaps in
the shotgun formation as he ran the spread offense at Auburn, which
he led to the BCS national title.
Newton has been in San Diego since late January, working with
quarterbacks coach George Whitfield Jr. and receiving advice from
Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon.
