Harbaugh said the "ability to make people miss as a quarterback is critical. Avoid. Being able to go with your legs. 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.
"And Cam Newton - that's plutonium-grade raw material, you know? I haven't seen upside like with this guy in probably the last 10 years."
" ***Note*** Harbaugh and the 49ers met with Newton at the combine and GM Trent Baalke attended his pro day. But the team has not yet set up a visit with him as have most of the other QB-needy teams picking in the Top 10.
