This may have been all over the news, I don't know. But I heard this comment on one of the sports talk shows the other day and so I looked it up in print because I thought it was an interesting description of Cam Newton. Plutonium Grade Raw Material.
If this one is too easy, I apologize.

We've got some quarterbacks in this draft like Cam Newton and (Blaine) Gabbert in particular, and Jake Locker that not only will make people miss and avoid people, but they can run and keep defenses out of certain coverages, which is quite the trait to have. And they can pick up first downs with their legs, keep the chains moving.

- that's plutonium-grade raw material
