Cam Newton still remembers the first time he saw Ryan Mallett.
They were attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes breakfast the week of the 2008 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
“I saw this big, tall guy come into the room, and somebody told me who he was,” Newton said. “I’d heard about him, but couldn’t get over how tall he was.”
The 6-6, 250-pound Newton marveling at how big somebody was. No quarterback in the SEC has been bigger from a literal or figurative sense this season than Newton.
