A shift with the No. 1 pick

Adam Schefter often answers reader questions in his blog. Got a query of your own? Submit it here.

Q: I've heard a lot of talk that Patrick Peterson is the best player in the draft, regardless of position. If that is the case, do you think there is a chance that the Carolina Panthers nab him at No. 1?

-- Tracy (Colo.)

A: Tracy: I think he's in play at No. 1, but I don't think he will be the pick. Last week I sensed Blaine Gabbert would be the No. 1 overall pick; this week I'm more on the Cam Newton bandwagon. The more I hear, the more it sounds like Newton is the player to beat for the No. 1 pick. The Panthers play in the same division as Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Josh Freeman, need improved quarterback play and need to create buzz to sell some tickets -- no player can do that as well as Newton. A lot can change in the next five weeks, but I believe Carolina goes quarterback at No. 1. And today, based on what I'm hearing, I'm leaning Newton over Gabbert, the player I initially thought would go No. 1.
