Default EJ Manuel vs Cam Newton

One of the interesting things coming out of the rumor mill lately is that Chud has compared Manuel to Newton. I do think Manuel has a similar kind of physical upside, and if you were just to watch him against Clemson or something, you'd probably be inclined to agree. When Manuel's at his best, a Cam Newton comparison really isn't far off. Additionally, Manuel seems a bit more mature and composed than Cam, but he also isn't quite the athlete, and makes fewer splash plays with his legs.

the obvious question is if there's enough there to draft Manuel at #6 overall. There were plenty of people who thought #1 was way too high for Cam, although I wasn't one of them. With Manuel, I think he looks like a #1 overall pick in some games, but then doesn't in others. Cam pretty much dominated from start to finish at Auburn. I also think Cam's accuracy was consistently underrated in college, and his ability to come through in the clutch was impressive, and I haven't seen that degree of clutch yet with Manuel.

What are people's thoughts? Are there people who have Manuel rated higher this year than they had Cam rated two years ago?
