News: Newton is grading out as the second best offensive tackle in football after two games, according to Pro Football Focus, CSN Houston reports. Impact: Newton came under fire last season as the weakest link on the offensive line, particularly in pass protection, but has always been good as a run blocker. He still needs to improve as a blocker in the passing game, but with Houston's run-dominated attack early in 2014, Newton has been dominant.(RotoWire, )
