2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Cam Newton

Cam Newton, QB, Auburn (6'6" 250 lbs.)

Positives: Has all the tools to be an elite NFL quarterback. He has an effortless throwing motion and tremendous arm strength. He has the ability to make every throw necessary in the NFL. Extremely mobile and dangerous when he gets out of the pocket. Very accurate passer, both in the pocket and on the run. He had a prolific season last year at Auburn, despite being the most scrutinized college football player

Negatives: Hasn't shown great accuracy when trying to throw within small passing windows. Needs to work on setting his feet better before he throws. He's still maturing, with only one year of starting experience at the division one level. His biggest flaw may be his character concerns surrounding his recruitment to Auburn. He won't be able to rely on his athleticism in the NFL, needs to prove he's willing to learn the pro game.
