    Lovefest sounds so negative, Jeff.

    I don't think he's overrated. I think he was simply unknown because he was Vandy's QB. If he had played for a good team, he probably would have been a Heisman candidate.

    Mike Mayock doesn't think he is overated and he analyzes the draft for a living. I wouldn't be surprised if many NFL scouts have Cutler rated higher than a most of the couch analyzers have him. He very well might be a safer pick than Young and in the long run a better QB. Certainly it is going to be hard for Cutler to surpass Young or Leinert simply because they have played on great college teams and have been in the spot light where Cutler played at Vandy and spent most of his career playing with guys that wouldn't even be third string players on Texas or USC. Like the one article said, Cutler is the only Vandy player even invited to the combine of the 330 players invited. That says alot. The only reason Cutler will not be picked early in the draft IMO is if the Titans don't take him, opting for Young instead and teams like Detroit, Jets or Arizona simply decide not to take a QB. If the JEts decide to draft a QB Cutler will be gone at #4.

    I've seen Cutler play more than Young and Leinart put together and just don't see him on the same level.

    Cutler would hardly be the first great QB to play on a bad college team and struggle to win games. The fact that he had so little talent surrounding him masks just how good he can be, but there is no doubt for anyone who watched Vandy this year that they were only going as far as he could carry them on his shoulders.

    I agree Jeff. Seen him play since high school. Is he good? Absolutely. Better than Young or Leinhart to be taken at #3? Not imo. And for the "talent around him" arguement....are you saying Vandy has NEVER played a team that they had superior talent than? Can you say MTSU?
