    SUMMARY: With the Combine complete, speculation as to who the Titans will select with the third pick of the 2006 NFL Draft isn't any clearer. Vanderbilt's Jay Cutler was the only top quarterback to workout at the Combine and most were impressed with his efforts including bench pressing 225 lbs for 23 reps and running a 4.77 40-yard dash. "Cutler was impressive I thought," said Mike Ackerley, director of college scouting for the Titans. "He had a good time (in the 40). He looked strong running. He worked out, and looked good doing it. Those are all positive things that helped his stock." Both USC's Matt Leinart and Texas' Vince Young will wait until their Pro Days to show their stuff. The USC Pro Day is April 1 and the Longhorn workout is March 22. Young's stock looked to take a hit as rumors circulated that he'd scored only a six on the Wonderlic test. But NFL officials denied the score and talk yesterday shifted to news that Young apparently re-took the test and got a 16. Titans GM Floyd Reese didn't interview with the top three QBs at the Combine as he focused on talking to players the team is less familiar with. But he admitted he'll be talking to all three soon. "We'll spend a lot of time with them between now and the draft," Reese said. "They'll all hate us."

    Talk about blowing smoke! "Cutler may have moved ahead of Young." Yeah right. total BS. They're just trying to make some drama.

    I wouldn't even consider Young with the 3rd pick.
