Less than a week after ESPN.com reported that someone claiming to represent Cam Newton was accepting money for his signature on a National Letter of Intent, FoxSports.com is reporting a new back story as to why Newton left the University of Florida.
According to their source, Newton was involved in three violations of the academic honor code, including writing his name on someone else's paper and purchasing a paper from the Internet. Although the Newtons have claimed that the quarterback decided to transfer because Tim Tebow opted to stay in school for his senior year, the source told FoxSports.com that Newton was in fact no longer enrolled at Florida before Tebow made his decision.

Thanks a lot, Dak Prescott. Now more people will think the fourth round is still a gold mine for quarterbacks, but the data says otherwise. The update to our quarterback draft study for 1994-2016 shows little has changed: finding a good QB is really hard.
