Then why are people wanting to draft Newton? He isn't that person. Athletic ability is a bonus not the sole or main reason a person should be drafted. Sure, running ability from a qb is a flashy trait and that is why so many people like Newton and the like. But running ability fades over time, and people lose focus of what is really important for a qb, their passing abilities. And Newton doesn't possess those. He is most definitely not worth a first round draft pick.
