Panthers Select Cam Newton #1

Be sure to watch the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft starting tonight (Friday) at 6pm ET on NFL Network. The Carolina Panthers used the #1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft to select quarterback Cam Newton from Auburn University.

Cam won the Heisman Trophy, given to the best player in college football, and also led Auburn to the National Championship. He is a stud who can throw and run and should be a big play-maker for the Panthers.

The Denver Broncos made the second pick and chose linebacker Von Miller from Texas A&M. Von is a big hitter who loves to sack quarterbacks.

The third pick in the draft was Marcell Dareus, a humongous 319 lb. defensive tackle from Alabama who loves to eat running backs for breakfast. Marcell will be anchoring the defense for the Buffalo Bills.
