    Cutler is probably the better "true" passer of the top 5 QB's coming out

    yes, he took some chances - he had to
    he also put Vanderbilt in position to win ballgames
    it's all about the win

    That constant gambling may translate well in College, but in the Pros it definitely won't fly.

    When your the QB at Vandy you have to take some risks if your going to win games in the SEC. I wouldn't be disapointed if we drafted Cutler. He's smart, we know that. Some questions arrise about his over all ability and I think it's just a Vandy thing stuffed in the back of my mind. Hell, now days it's hard to pin point true talent when you trying to find a QB. If you look at all the QB's taken over that last few years there's been some good and some bad. David Carr was supposed to be the next super star and for whatever reason he's suck's. Same with Harrington in Detroit. Phillip Rivers is on the bench. Simms is terrible down in Tampa (though a third round draft pick still a risky pick). It's a huge gamble no matter who you take, there just aren't any gaurantees anymore and it seems like judging a QB's talent is the hardest thing for these scouts to do. Two perfect examples: Tom Brady - UDFA & Ryan Leaf-1st pick horrible bust.

    Tom Brady was a 5th or 6th round selection and I agree, QB's seem the hardest for this guys to grade.

    Both Tom Brady and Marc Bulger came out of the same draft in the 6th round (kind of odd considering the number of busts or players not played at all taken before them both).

    THAT is why I don't buy all this draft pick crap.

    Marc Bulger is having trouble staying on the field here as of late and another late round selection is coming in and doing just as good a job recently. I'd say Brady is the only stand out of late round QB's. Although, wasn't Trent Green a late round selection or UDFA?
