5. Cam Newton, Panthers: No offseason workouts, no contact with his coaches pre-training camp, no problem. He has thrown for 2,393 yards, 11 touchdowns, nine picks and rushed for seven scores. His team, which threw for just nine TDs last season, has only two wins, but his play has been impressive considering all the things working against him, including an injury-weakened defense.
Do you think he deserves the ranking?
