Newton set to fully participate in combine

Cam Newton plans to fully participate in the NFL combine that begins later this week, saying he wants “to be transparent” through the whole draft process.

The quarterback who won the national title and Heisman Trophy in his only season at Auburn has to adjust to taking snaps under center for the NFL. He has been working with a quarterbacks coach, and held a workout for the media earlier this month.

Newton, who accepted the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s best quarterback on Monday, says he’s prepared to work out for NFL teams at the combine and answer their questions.

The NCAA has ruled Newton’s father tried to get Mississippi State to pay for him to play there. There was no evidence Newton knew what his father did.
