Your Welcome!
Try again Suzie. You were asked to provide any confirmation from his collegiate career (you know, the one that Nawrocki supposedly based his evaluation on). You whiffed, miserably.

BTW - You really, REALLY ned to actually look at the stories your 2nd link pulls up (you know, that Google search?). It shows how far off Nawrocki's analysis was. Go ahead, man up and read the first four stories from your Google search.

"This is a physical sport, and it's hard to simulate when you're trying to protect a person's career," Newton said. "You don't want anyone to leave Hawaii injured and have to sit out next year.

"You've got to play smart and have fun, but you've also got to be competitive as well. With the format this year, it will bring a twist that will be good for the fans."

Regardless of which team he landed on, Newton is thrilled to be surrounded by his real teammates – those that wear Panthers black and blue.

"It's great," Newton said. "We've got Luke, Kalil, Jordan, J.J., Tolbert and Kraken – and a lot of guys that aren't here that deserve to be here."

So, how much has Newton grown since then?

For starters, he changed his demeanor and attitude around dramatically in his third season as the Panthers quarterback. His actions weren't defined as brooding or sulking but rather those of a leader. Over the course of the 2013-14 season, Newton would engineer four come-from-behind wins, three of which were against playoff contenders.

Nawrocki has carved out a niche for himself as the fearless, dyspeptic critic of black guys' comportment (see his scouting report for Geno Smith), but he's really only channeling the ancient, mostly suppressed chauvinism of pro football's management class, which flowers anew in the runup to every draft. That's when we hear about players' "character issues," a broad-unto-meaninglessness category under which everything from pot smoking to sexual assault gets classified. That's when we hear about attitude problems and "fake smiles" and a "selfish, me-first makeup." (It's anyone's guess how much of this is disinformation promulgated in the hopes of sandbagging a desired prospect.

That's in the past now. He's also doing a better job of endearing himself to his teammates. He still isn't one of those hangout guys with them, but he's getting better at interacting with them.

Rivera has noticed.

"One of the things he's taken to heart is that it's not just about him wanting to be the best, it's about him wanting to help make his teammates the best," Rivera said. "You notice that now more."
Sure, I may "not know". It's certain Nawrocki doesn't. He's probably not the coattails you were looking to ride on. Should I attach a Google search for Nawrocki & 1diot?
