28 Cam Newton Cam Newton Cameron Jerrell Newton is an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

He won a national championship with very little assistance, and if you don't think the offense was all Cam I challenge you to name another offensive player from that year for Auburn. Also note: he ran the read option in the SEC West and still couldn't be stopped.

He did everything one can possibly achieve me in college football all in one year. He was the MAN.

Scam newton should not have even played at auburn should have faced a hard punishment for stealing a laptop

Just go watch his highlights, need I say more?

He hasn't done enough. When he puts his full college career together, then we can just judge him. I'm not a hater, I think he's a great player. He just hasn't done enough yet.

He set records like no one else but he did throw interceptions but did he lose those games no.Should be way higher on this list

Go Dawgs, my sis likes Clemson

30 Brian Bosworth
