Draft Rewind 2006 - Jay Cutler - Chicago Bears

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about JAY CUTLER: Vanderbilt, 6032 228 4.77. Four-year starter. Right handed. Three-time team captain. SEC offensive player of the year. Set numerous career records including total offense (9953 yards), TD passes (59), passing yardage (8697), pass completions (710), pass attempts (1242) and starts by a quarterback (45). Not a finished product. Mechanics are off at times. He never had a chance to set his feet and throw. Somewhat of a sling type delivery. He is a competitive leader who can take a hit and throw accurately under duress. Has the arm strength to make all the throws. He was timed at the Combine on the radar at 60 mph. Has a quick release. A playmaker that can adjust his throws under pressure. The lack of a star-studded surrounding cast may have helped him prepare for the NFL because of all the on-field adjustments that take place in a game. Played in both conventional and shotgun offense. Effective play action passer. Good touch and accuracy on fades and ball control routes. Was the best QB in practice at the Senior Bowl, but was erratic at times. Decision making was questionable at Vanderbilt because he was never able to get in a rhythm. Needs to improve deep ball touch and accuracy. Natural running ability to escape and make something happen. Can scramble and get up field with the ball. First round. (A-31 1/2, H-9 3/8, SS-4.31, VJ-DNP). (originally drafted by Denver)
