Discussion in 'NFL Draft' started by Spinnaker, Mar 17, 2006.
Would you draft him with the third pick?
He's impressing me, but I'm still not sold at #3. In a trade down, sure. I think the QB landscape will change again before the draft, though.
Sure, why not? If he is considered a franchise QB, then absolutely.
Problem is I don't think we have much leverage to trade down. I just don't see the player that the Packers, Bills or 9'ers would trade up for, and I wouldn't risk trading behind Raiders AND Lions/Cardinals.
To answer the question, would I draft Cutler at #3? Just as much as I would draft Leinart at #3 ;-)
Oh and Brian, you must know Chow pretty well to know that he wants Leinart over the other 2. Maybe he's drooling at having a hypermobile QB for once...
I think he's a huge reach at #3. JMO.
I don't like the word reach. It makes it appear as if there's some kind of 100% objective ranking of players, which I contend there is not. If Titans have Cutler or Leinart as the #1 player on their board, is it a reach, because for instance Kiper has them lower? Who decides which "board" is the correct one?
Vince......Vince....Vince.....a week after the national championship everybody was excited about him. All the sudden Cutler this Cutler that. Now Lienart seems to be the front runner. It seems to change every week. I don't care which one we get as long he is a player that we can build our program around.
I've been told that is a fantasy impossibility.
I'll take Leinhart. I think he's closer than the other guys are to being ready to play in the NFL, plus, he's damn good under preasure and he's used winning. You can't teach that. Not that Young isn't used to winning, I just don't want another running QB. I Leinhart isn't there I'd like to see us get Cutler.
Man, if you can't teach being used to winning, we ought to scrap the whole team right now, cos they've only been used to losing )
