“No one is a great quarterback in the NFL because of the way they run,” Jaws explained. “… [Newton] played very well from the pocket. … What also stood out was Newton’s patience in the pocket. And his ability to sit on his back foot and cut it loose. He made seam throws that were firm and required arm strength, yet demanded touch.

“Newton hung in the pocket and delivered without flinching. He was very good in the eye of the storm. This kid is a big-time talent. He still needs more experience, but the traits are there to be a special passer.”

“It starts with passing, but [Newton's] ability to break down a defense with his legs gives him an edge like few have ever had,” Jaworski said. “The read-option in the red zone is an added dimension that Newton brings. His speed is a decisive factor.

“One element I’ve talked about discussing Aaron Rodgers is the ability on third down to defeat man coverage by running. Newton gives you that same quality. That’s a real problem for a defense. It limits their coverage concepts

“From a skill-set standpoint,” Jaws said, “Newton could easily rank higher than 15th on my big board. He’s a top-ten talent. He needs more snaps; one year is not enough. But I can’t wait to see him in a few months.”

I think the only reason he has him 15th is because he's only 1 year in.

Any pundit that has Cam in the top 1/2 of all 32 teams is a fair card in my books. Most of us would obviously had him higher due to favoritism, but that is understandable.

...Awaits tweets about Cam being ranked higher than Alex Smith.

He might be top 15 if you only consider his passing.

i can understand him just being in the top 15 by some until they see him another year in.

the talent is there though. his head is also 100% in the game and that is what is going to make that talent realized.

regarding his patience in the pocket and all that jaws was talking about, one thing he didn't mention that fits in is that his eyes are always looking downfield and you can tell that those unscripted running plays he has, running is his last option and he is looking for that receiver to get open. i love that about him

Depends on your definition of better. Athletic ability and potential he is better. As far as the nuances of the QB game then I wouldn't say that. Saying the players you listed know the QB position better than Cam and probably execute better at pure QB play is probably correct.

I can see ranking him @ 15 simply because he's only played for one year, but he's clearly a top 10 talent.

Being named the 15th best QB in the league coming off an abbreviated rookie season ain't bad. He'll be considered the best QB in the league in 3 years.

Better QB play and who you would take are 2 different things.
