Newton is a 6th round draft pick who performed .... better than his draft status but far below what was needed in the running game. He was pretty solid in pass protection .... I would like to see him as the swing tackle going forward and the team improve the RT spot either thru FA or an early draft pick.
McNair even stated that if they expect to run the ball better the OL has to improve.
I see them addressing RT and WR with either early draft picks (rounds 1-2) or significant FA additions.
In the mid rounds I see ILB / OLB and DB being addressed.
