    It has McNeil as underrated, and says he might drop to the second round. I'd like that...

    How is McNeil underrated? There just happen to be a couple of great players in from of him, but does anyone seriously suggest he's better than Brick, Justice and Winston?

    He is a pure right tackle, while those three will be playing left tackle probably. That makes him an attractive option in the lower 1st round if someone needs a piledriver. He could arguably be a better overall prospect than Winston imo. Remember, this is the guy that helped make Cadillac and Ronnie Brown top 10 players and some RB that no one ever heard of comes out of nowhere to have a great season this year. Hmmmmm.....

    I wouldn't say Cutler is overrated, more overhyped. You may be questioning the difference but not everyone rates Cutler and then again some people have him as their #1 (Mike Mayock, NFL.com 'expert' for one).

    It's the big question; do you take a guy who faced adversity all his career with no talent around him and still did a good job OR do you take a guy who's had everyone around him. Faced some good opposition but not half as dominant.

    That fact is Leinart has had the #1 RB, a top-10 talent in LenDale (He WAS projected to go to Arizona before he fluffed/they got edge), a top-10 pick in Winston Justice what looks to be a top-10 WR in Dwayne Jarrett, a TE who is 3rd or 4th on most boards, 2 of the better guards in the draft (http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/rankings/og.html - has them 4 and 7th) and David Kirtman who has terrific hands from FB. So lets recap:

    OT-?? OG #4 G C?? OG #7 G OT Top-10 TE-#4 TE
    Himself - Top-5 pick
    RB - #1 overall RB2 - Top-10 talent (likely 1st rounder)

    Given that talent I don't think anyone could fail as long as you don't make silly mistakes. In that situation Cutler wouldn't have to gamble.

    Edit: Man you don't realise the talent Leinart had. Its basically an NFL All-Rookie team.

    IThe only reason he says Cutler is overrated is because he thinks some people have him rated above Young. Nothing to do with how good Cutler is, but how people have got Young ranked. That seems pretty dumb to me...

    I agree... When you first start reading the Cutler section you think he is talking about a guy who is underated and not overated. Considering the "experts" are all split on the order these 3 QB should be rated and many actually do have Young rated higher than Cutler the read was a waste of time.

    And you can expect teams to be split as well. Some may have him graded in the top 10. Others late in the first. You may have a few who think he's not worthy of the first round.
