    There's a clip of Matt Leinarts pro-day at espn.com, as well as interviews with Chow and Fisher. To me he looked good and I would not be sad to see us draft him as the #1 QB.

    White didn't seem concerned about not being able to work out. "I'm the only true big back in the first round, and people who want the physical runner are going to have to look at me," he said.

    Is this kid getting career advice from Maurice Clarett or something? Sounds like he's got a sense of entitlement.

    36 of 46 with 4 drops and several "floaters". Leinart admitted himself he wasn't as sharp as he would have liked to have been. Plus he didn't run- wonder why?

    Well, I would have liked him to run as well, but unlike VY it's not an integral part of his game, so I understand why he skipped it, although I think he should have done it.

    And personally I don't put that much stock in the actual number of completions in these excercises. Unless his throws were all over the place, the important thing is to see how he sets up, releases and how the ball gets there.

    it's very interesting how everything is hush hush on Leinart's pro day. As much as the media loves Leinart his pro day must have been totally unimpresive.

    Well I guess the Titans are still stuck with Young as the #3 pick in the mock draft.

    Yea, I would assume if Cutler or Young missed 10 passes we would have heard comments like they were going to drop. Seems like Leinart wasn't spectacular at all and we don't hear anything.

    I think the main difference is that Leinart has been one of the top passers in the nation for the last three years while Young and Cutler have only recently made that claim. I don't think there is any reason to think that Leinart can't throw all of the sudden. I'm sure he just had the jitters.
