Imagine if Jamie Newman would have suited up for the Bulldogs this year? The 6’4 passer has one of the prettiest deep balls in college football. The former Wake Forest grad transfer is a dual-threat quarterback with great touch.
Most quarterbacks that are dual-threats lack in something. There are very few who can throw a deep ball and run. Most of them succeed, and Newman has all the traits to succeed at the next level.
He is a tough quarterback who will stand in the pocket when it is collapsing on him. He trusts his targets, and is a leader in the locker room.
Newman decided to prepare for the NFL Draft, and many thought that could hurt his stock, but he made a business decision. Yes, he did dominate at Wake Forest, but they wanted to see what he could do with UGA. Many scouts say he forces the ball, but that is something that can be fixed.
Newman will hear his name called in the 2021 NFL Draft, the biggest question is when will it happen?
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes
Jamie Newman is not perfect, but neither was Josh Allen. Newman has some minor flaws that with good coaching can be fixed. Newman has all the physical tools you want him to have, and if he can get someone to help him slow the game down he could be dangerous. Newman has a pretty deep ball and I honestly feel if he would have played at UGA this year, he could have been in consideration for the first round. I think he is on the outside looking in at this point. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
