2011 NFL Mock Draft: Cam Newton The Seahawks' Pick In One Draft

The pick of the day would be a long shot, at best, for the Seattle Seahawks. Following the Senior Bowl, the latest mock drafts look like they’ve had a bomb dropped on them, with picks scattered about in places we’d never expected them to be. Quarterbacks have gone flying, falling out of the top 10, and defense is ruling the day. Most surprising of all: Cam Newton is available late in the first round.

Because Newton, the 2010 Heisman trophy winner, is around when the Seahawks pick at No. 25, SB Nation’s 2011 NFL Mock Draft has him headed to Seattle, though they do quantify the statement.

Cam Newton will probably not be available this deep into round one. That’s putting it mildly. Without projecting trades, however, he slides to a QB-needy Seahawks team that would likely sprint the card bearing his name to the podium.

It’s hard to believe Newton would fall all the way to 25th considering the significant amount of hype about his abilities ahead of the draft. Newton is a physical specimen, possessing the size to run over defenders and a cannon for an arm. Like the rest of the quarterbacks in the draft, Newton also has questions surrounding his game. Many wonder if he can be an accurate passer or if he can transition to a pro-style after working in the spread.
