Cam Newton is a shoe-in for NFL Rookie of the Year

Cam Newton is a shoo-in to win the 2011 NFL Rookie of the Year award and he has the records, if not the record, to prove it.

Newton, quarterback of the Carolina Panthers (4-9), is the only quarterback in NFL history to start his career with consecutive 400-yard passing games.

He is also the first quarterback in NFL history, rookie or vet, to run for 13 touchdown in a season and he has three more games to go.

On top of that, with 3,722 yards through the air and two games to go, Newton only needs 18 yards to pass Peyton Manning for the most passing yards by a rookie quarterback in NFL history heading into Week 16.

However, Newton is not the only record-setter in an impressive class of NFL rookies.

Here is a look at three other record-setting rookies who could challenge Newton for the 2011 NFL Rookie of the Year award.
