1. Carolina Panthers
The pick: Cam Newton
The re-pick: Cam Newton
It is not very often that you find a special quarterback like Cam Newton and the Panthers did just that in the 2011 NFL Draft. He has turned out to be the smartest choice they have ever made.
If his Rookie of the Year performance wasn’t telling enough, he won the MVP award and led the Panthers to the Super Bowl for the first time in over a decade.
