Cam Newton (CAR)
Low Risk (30%)
Player Overview

You can find plenty of little reasons why Newton’s numbers might come down, but he finished last year well ahead of the rest of the position. The gap between him and #2 was larger than the difference between #2 and #6. Combine Newton’s 2015 ascension with the return of Kelvin Benjamin, and you get plenty of scoring potential. No QB has a higher ceiling than Newton. We almost never take the 1st QB off the board in any draft, but Newton could be that guy.
