When: 2/22/2011

Going into the NFL Draft one would think the reigning National Champion and Heisman winner would have had the best and brightest around him to prevent cases of logorrhea. You'd be wrong though. In an interview with Peter King of SI, Newton apparently just wanted to let the world know that he's more than just a good football player, he see's himself as "an entertainer and icon." Needless to say it rubbed a bunch of people the wrong way and probably played a role in him being bashed so much before the Draft. Eh, we all know what happened next.
