NFL Draft 2011 Round 1 #1 Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton

The Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn is taken. says-

Newton is one of the most athletically gifted quarterbacks in draft history. Possesses a quick, clean release, enough arm strength to complete the deep out, prototypical size, and is a dangerous threat outside of the pocket. However, he has a ways to go before turning into a productive, reliable NFL starter. Was not asked to make pro-style reads or move through progressions in college. Footwork is sloppy and accuracy is inconsistent. He’s competitive and vocal on the field, but has had several off-the-field issues and his character is in question. Despite the risk, Newton’s talent will likely prevent him from lasting past the middle of the first round.

I predict Newton to be a NFL Draft Bust.
