2011 NFL Rookie Watch: Cam Newton
Heisman Trophy winner and National Champion Cam Newton has declared for the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft. He had an amazing season where he completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 2854 yards, 30 TDs, and just seven INTs. He also ran for 1473 yards and 20 touchdowns.
At 6’6″, 250 pounds, Newton brings impressive size and speed to the table. He also has a big arm. He’ll likely go in the early to mid-first round, depending on how he does both mentally and physically leading up to the draft.
I’m not sure he makes a big impact as a rookie, but he is certainly one to go after in dynasty leagues. Quarterbacks can be so hard to predict, but it appears Newton has the tools to be an elite quarterback.
