NFL Draft 2011: The Most Likely NFL Teams to Draft Cameron Newton
Questions about Cameron Newton started with what round of the 2011 NFL Draft was he going to go in. Now the question is who will take Newton in the first round.
A lot of people have Newton being drafted in the top 10 of the NFL Draft, including CBS Sports. Therefore, some teams are willing to take a chance on him, and they think that Newton is deserving of a first-round draft pick.
Here are the most likely places where Cam will end up.
Minnesota Vikings, Pick No. 12
Brett Favre finally retired, so the Minnesota Vikings are without a starting quarterback. They, of course, can go with Tarvaris Jackson, but he did not perform very well when he got some snaps last season.
The Vikings need a quarterback that can start right away, and Newton may be their guy.
If Newton is still up on the board when the 12th pick comes around, the Vikings will most likely draft him.
Tennessee Titans, Pick No. 8
Although the Tennessee Titans are trying to go in a different direction from Vince Young, Newton has some similarities to him.
However, with the Titans style of offense, Newton could succeed. Not to mention, if the Titans keep Young, Newton could learn a lot being his back-up.
Cincinnati Bengals, Pick No. 4
The Cincinnati Bengals drafting Newton is very likely since Carson Palmer is demanding a trade. With this said, the Bengals need a starting quarterback right away.
Cincinnati could be the best place for Newton, since he would most likely win the starting job immediately.
Buffalo Bills, Pick No. 3
The Buffalo Bills absolutely want a quarterback, although Ryan Fitzpatrick had a decent season with them last year.
If the Bills do not think Fitzpatrick is their franchise quarterback, then they will go with Newton with the third pick overall.
The Bills may also show interest in Newton to scare teams into trading up.
Whatever the case, the Bills are showing a lot of interest in Newton.
