The 2011 NFL Draft is just around the corner.

With that said, there is still a lot of speculation on where Cameron Newton will go. For just a second, however, let's talk about what makes Cam Newton so amazing.

First, he is by far one of the best players in the whole entire draft—not just one of the best quarterbacks, but one of the best players.

Cam Newton is 6'6" and weighs 250 pounds. To say the least, he is a big boy. Not to mention, he is a quarterback.

With this size, any NFL team would be attracted to Cam. 

Newton's accuracy is in question, however; people are in denial of how accurate a thrower he really is. Although Newton started off his first two seasons with Florida completing 50 percent of his passes, he improved tremendously his junior year when he actually got a shot as a starter. 

Cameron Newton completed 66.1 percent of his passes that year, which is an amazing feat for anyone who plays the position of quarterback.

This alone should prove to people that Newton can be an accurate passer in the NFL. 

Cam's numbers last year were simply amazing. He threw for 2,854 yards and 30 touchdown passes. Newton also added on 1,473 rushing yards and 20 rushing touchdowns.

This proves that Newton can be a double threat in the NFL.

Newton is a very great running quarterback and he is an even better throwing quarterback.

What more could a team want? 

Newton also has a very high IQ for the game of football. He has great accuracy, he can run the football, has great mechanics and his arm strength is unbelievable. 

Although people still question Newton, they shouldn't. He was the best player in all of college football last year, and he is going to show people that he can perform at the next level.

Newton will most likely be a top-10 draft pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and he is very deserving of that honor.

A top-10 pick alone should prove that he is one of the best players in the 2011 NFL Draft.
