He needs to develop as a passer. Take it from Josh Freeman. The way he played in 2010, he couldnt continue to play that way once the league adjusted to it and never adapted to becoming a pocket passer, hence hearing the "Bust Label" getting thrown around more than ever now.
Newton needs to only use that athleticism when all else breaks down. That can't be his first instinct. His intangibles and QB instincts were a question mark coming out and only played 1 year of D-1 Football.
He's a heck of an athlete but to become a successful qb, he's got a long ways to go.
