I was tempted to stop reading after he already threw Andrew Luck in there at #1 but I perservered.  Cam and Luke both made the top 10.

 

 

 

6
Luke Kuechly
AGE: 22
POS: LB
Tkl 164
Sack 1.0
Int 2

Current: If you think this is too high for a middle linebacker and I'm breaking my rules about positional value, consider that Kuechly led the NFL in tackles and took on the role of one of the leaders of an NFL defense all while playing the entire 2012 season as a 21-year-old. Again, think about that -- he's three months younger than Manti Te'o. Kuechly has exceptional instincts, is a stud against the run and really only needs to improve in coverage. But he will because he's ahead of the curve.

Future: Kuechly is so high because he's already a Pro Bowl-caliber player, has no injury history and will qualify for this list for almost another three years, which is incredible. He'll also move to middle linebacker this year after working a lot on the weak side last season. He's only going to get better, which means he could play in about 10 Pro Bowls.

 

 

 

 

9
Cam Newton
AGE: 24
POS: QB
Att 485
Comp pct 57.7
Yds 3,869
TD 19
Int 12

Current: This might be too low for Newton, but after an outstanding rookie season that quieted plenty of doubters, I saw him take a clear step back as a passer in 2012, which creates a few questions on his ceiling. Newton is one of the most gifted physical talents to ever enter the league, and could definitely use a little more help in the passing game. He also won't turn 25 until next May, so there's lots of time for him to get it going again.

Future: Carolina finished really well in 2012, going 5-1 down the stretch. Newton has the frame to handle it, but I'd still like to see him used just a little bit less as a runner -- not so much for health reasons, but so he can continue to develop as a passer. My concern is whether Newton has enough good options to throw to at wide receiver. He has the talent, but his instincts are split between what he is as an athlete and what he is as a QB who anticipates at a high level.

Fair enough assessments. Contrary to what many people on the huddle, and panther nation in general may believe, Cam is not perfect and has some things to work on... Which is fine because he's only 24 years old. People aren't totally disrespecting him, he is getting some credit which is good. So lets all take a deep breath before we all rant about how cam is disrespected and stuffs.

I find nothing disrespectful at all in this no talent hacks assessment of our 2 studs. IMO he has them in reverse order but both kids are gonna rule the league at their positions for quite some time. I'm quite pleased with what he has said here.

Just curious but was Russel Wilson on the list? I'm assuming Luck and RG3 all made it ahead of Cam.

If RG3 is #5 then A. Smith deserves to be in the Top 10 too.

I agree with Wilson though.

Youngest on the list was Luke.

 

 

I get all hot and bothered over that 22 year old.

Luck at #1 is laughable.  I will laugh my ass off when the Colts fall flat on their faces this year.  They won't have a winning record.
