The Heisman trophy winner and BCS title winner decided he’s done all he can do at the collegiate level and will be taking his game to the next level.  Newton has the potential to be a top 10 pick depending on his performance in the combine. Here is a compilation of his highlights from 2010.

The ultimate weapon in this year’s draft became only the 3rd player in NCAA history to toss for 20 TDs and rush for 20 TDs in a single season.

Here is one play that shows Newton’s canon of an arm.

This article discusses the pros and cons of drafting the 6’6 250 pounder from Auburn.
