    Re: Jay Cutler at all costs?

    "Scouts in attendance have concerns about quarterback Jay Cutler. While he physically has the makings of an NFL passer, the mental make-up is a little different. Several people we spoke with say Cutler can be surly at times. That is not the type of person teams are willing to invest a fortune in as the future leader of their franchise."

    Re: Jay Cutler at all costs?

    I am not saying I want the Vikes to take him, but I will add a positive that I heard from Mayoc who has been watching him at the Sr Bowl. He has the best arm out of all the attendees. Mayoc still has him as the top QB in the draft.

    Like I said prior to the copywrite date of this article......somewhere Tommy Kramer is smiling. Perhaps - Charles Robinson is reading the purplepride.org for insight to his articles. Or maybe he is reading umaguma1979's- posts.

    People are saying he didn't exactly light it up.. He didn't have anything around him to help him light it up.. He went to Vanderbilt!!!

    If we trade Pep we better trade down and get Cutler.. No way he falls to us.. Lions will snag him

    Re: Jay Cutler at all costs?

    Here's da inside poop in dis mug:
    ===============================================
    ESPN.com evaluation: QB Jay Cutler
    Insider
    Scouts Inc.

    Editor's note: Practice notes will be updated daily and a final report will be completed on Friday, Jan. 27.

    Jay Cutler took over as a starter as a redshirt freshman in 2002 and never relinquished the job. Despite being overmatched on almost a weekly basis in SEC play, Cutler found ways to keep his team in games. He lacks some polish and will need to work on his footwork, release mechanics and decision-making skills before he's ready to compete for a starting job in the NFL. However, he has a strong arm and adequate size, speed, and athletic ability. He is an experienced, competitive four-year starter who is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

    Few players enter the Senior Bowl week with as much momentum as Cutler. If he can build on it with an impressive week-long performance, Cutler will solidify a spot in the first round of the 2006 draft.

    Jay Cutler 22 Vanderbilt 6 QB
    PLAYER AGE SCHOOL NO. POSITION

    Height: 6-2 7/8 -- Adequate-to-good height for the QB position.

    Weight: 223 -- Possesses adequate bulk.

    Speed: 4.80 -- Adequate speed. More mobile than his 40 time indicates.

    Intelligence: Great intelligence. Pick up schemes and playbooks quickly.

    Toughness: Is one of the toughest QB prospects in this year's class.

    Strength/Flex: Shows good flexibility and great strength for his size.

    Durability: Missed some time as a junior (2004) with neck and ankle injuries but remained remarkably durable considering the beating he endured.

    Character: Coaches rave about his work ethic, toughness and leadership. Suspended for a game in 2002 after he was issued four misdemeanor citations by campus police for property damage, underage drinking and evading arrest.

    Production: A four-year starter that improved in terms of efficiency each season. Finished 2005 with 3,073 passing yards, 21 TDs and nine INTs. Also rushed for 215 yards.

    QB SPECIFICS
    Arm Strength
    B+ Very good arm strength but not elite. Compared to Brett Favre, but is not nearly in that class.

    Escape Ability
    B Feels the rush well and is athletic enough to avoid pressure with quick feet in the pocket.

    Quick Set Up
    B+ Gets back quickly and does not have problems in this area.

    Accuracy Long
    B Throws accurate deep ball with nice touch. Has the arm to drive the ball deep down the field.

    Accuracy Short
    B Puts his receivers in good position to make plays after the catch in the short zones.

    Locate 2nd Receiver
    B Sees the field well and consistently finds his second option .

    Running Ability
    B Athletic and tough enough to make plays with his feet. Can scramble when play breaks down.

    Quickness of Delivery
    B Gets the ball out of his hand quickly and decisively.

    Judgement
    B- Has some gambler to him, but protects the football and makes proper reads.

    Poise
    B Has a swagger and makes his teammates around him better.

    PRACTICE NOTES
    Monday (1/23/06): Cutler showed up in very good shape. Looks quick in his drops and shows good mobility. Cutler has very good arm strength and gets necessary RPMs on the deep out route. He shows the ability to fit the ball into tight spots. He also shows adequate touch and timing. He will need to improve his mechanics, especially his footwork as a passer. He is too streaky in terms of his accuracy. Missed a few open receivers that he should have hit during drills today.

    Tuesday (1/24/06): Cutler is clearly the class of quarterbacks at this week's Senior Bowl and had a very solid day on Tuesday. Although it was rather windy, his passes cut the wind with enough velocity to be effective in any NFL system. His mechanics still need some polish, but he shows mobility, confidence and the ability to get the ball to the North receivers accurately and abruptly. In an All-Star format this like one, quart
    erbacks often struggle early in the week with their timing and rhythm, but Cutler has come out of the gate strong and should continue to separate himself throughout this week in Mobile.

    Wednesday (1/25/06): Although he wasn't spectacular, Cutler once again showed consistency, accuracy and a soft touch as a passer on Wednesday. He has assured himself as being the top quarterback drafted from the Senior Bowl. He is a plus athlete and throws with plenty of RPMs. Over the last two practices, his throws often sink with the nose of the ball harshly facing down. This could be due to him overthrowing the football while trying to impress coaches and scouts.

    SUMMARY
    Jay Cutler had an extremely positive week in Mobile and also benefited from the lesser play of the other quarterbacks in attendance. Cutler's stock is high right now and although he needs a little work on his mechanics, he simply doesn't have a glaring negative to his game. He throws the ball accurately and with velocity, moves well in the pocket and after the play breaks down, and has a tough competitive mentality. The combination of these qualities usually results in a quarterback prospect that has an excellent chance to succeed on the NFL level. Cutler fits that bill and will hear his name called in the first round.


    FINAL GRADE
    B
    "From the fury of the Northmen, O Lord, save us!"
    -- From a monestary in Ireland.

    Re: Jay Cutler at all costs?

    I heard today on ESPN Radio that the Jets sat down with Cutler last night after Senior Bowl practice and had dinner with him. Evidently they're very big on him and may look to replace Chad Pennington.

    I also saw him today on NFL Network's coverage of the Senior Bowl and he looks like he's gonna be good. He's big and strong and has very good arm strength and a quick release. He was wide on a few throws, but he looks like he's gonna be darn good.

    Nah - I'll say Detroit screws up and drafts another receiver. That way they can say that they have the best #5 receiver in the league.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    Re: Jay Cutler at all costs?

    QBs with iffy mechanics coming out of college aren't somebody I would like the vikes to draft. It's tough to break a guy of those bad mechanics when he gets into the league. It'll be interesting IMO about how Vince Young does in the NFL, he's got some unorthodox mechanics with his throw too!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
