After Auburn defeated Oregon 22-19 in the BCS National Championship, many will begin to question what is next for Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton.

Newton did not play his greatest game in last night's Championship game, but it should be enough to get him drafted in the first round and fortunately for him, there are many teams that are in need of a franchise quarterback.

Newton threw for 265 yards with two touchdowns and an interception while carrying the ball 22 times for 65 yards.

Newton did have a key fumble late in the fourth quarter that allowed Oregon to tie the game, but there was too much time left for Auburn who drove down field to win the game with a field goal.

Newton had 49 total touchdowns during the College Football regular season and many teams in the NFL would love to having his playmaking ability.

Newton possess the talent to change a game at any point in time, and that is a quality that will get him drafted in the first round.

Being that Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has decided to return to school, all the other quarterbacks in the 2011 Draft should be selected higher, including Cam Newton.

Newton has tremendous talent and can get drafted anywhere from early to late in the first round.

Teams such as the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins, Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks are all in need of a franchise quarterback, and Auburn's Cam Newton can come in and fill that need.

No. 2 has faced a lot of adversity this season and his character and leadership skills are qualities that an NFL organization will love.

Newton has ended this College Football season on top with a Heisman Trophy and a National Championship.

While no official word has been given on if Newton will enter this April's draft, but it is hard to imagine that he will skip out on the NFL after such an incredible season.
