Payton interested in Cutler?

Let's try door No. 3


By Adam Schefter
Special to NFL.com


Adam Schefter's "Around the League" reports and commentaries can be seen regularly on NFL Total Access.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Once, few thought that former University of Miami running back Edgerrin James would be drafted ahead of former University of Texas running back Ricky Williams.

And he was.


Jay Cutler completed nearly 60 percent of his passes for over 3,000 yards in 2005.
Now, few think that Vanderbilt quarterback Jay Cutler will be drafted ahead of USC quarterback Matt Leinart or Texas quarterback Vince Young.

And he could be.

The man who ultimately might make the decision is New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, holder of the draft's No. 2 overall pick.

Those close to Payton say that, behind closed doors, the Saints coach has conveyed the opinion that Cutler could turn out to be the next Brett Favre. Payton has yet to study extensive game tape of Cutler, but he has seen enough to believe that the quarterback has a real chance to be a bona fide star at the next level.
Because he never even played in a bowl game, Cutler did not receive the offensive line protection that the higher-rated quarterbacks did. Yet he performed admirably, impressing his teammates plenty and NFL scouts even more.

If Payton is as enamored with Cutler as people say, then the debate over whether Leinart or Young will be the first quarterback picked could be moot. Cutler could pull the upset.

This would not surprise NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock, who has maintained that Cutler is this draft's top-rated quarterback -- ahead of Leinart, ahead of Young.

And if Payton is, in fact, thinking the same way as Mayock, then this draft's first surprise could come at No. 2.


Should Cutler go No. 2, it would rearrange the projected first-round order. Then, Leinart would fall to No. 3, where he would be reunited with his former offensive coordinator at USC, Norm Chow. And it also would leave Young to go No. 4 to the New York Jets, who need a quarterback. Yet, should the Jets opt for a bigger need with Virginia's D'Brickashaw Ferguson, then Young could fall to the Oakland Raiders at No. 7.

Of course, these are purely hypothetical. And there will be countless variations of them between now and draft day.

Please, please, Sean, don't believe the hype. I have two words for you, Kyle Boller.

LOL- I have it tivo'd, but haven't had a chance to watch. Did Cutler sit on the 40 yard line, and throw passes from the seated position??? That's the one thing I remember from Boller's personal workouts. I was like, "great arm, but what exactly are you trying to prove???" LOL

NO just did 225 s5 times ran a decent 40 time and made every throw with accuracy and touch. And I belive some passes were clocked in the 60 mph range.That's all.

Actually Boller was one knee from the 50 through the goal posts, BUT, yeah. that's what Iw as getting at. Moved him from a second rounder into a first round pick and very much hyped. I don't care what throws Cutler made, don't believe the hype, as far as taking him over Leinart. If you can get him before Vince Young, great. But not before Leinart.

Yeah I don't care what Cutler is doing in the COMBINE, on the field he couldn't even complete 60% of his passes. No way this guy should be a Saint

RE: Re: Payton interested in Cutler?

I don't think there's really a decision to be made, if it came down to Lienart and Cutler. But, if we did not have a choice on Lienart, for whatever reason, I'm not opposed to trading out, and possible securing his services then. Just no Young, please. That's all I ask.

I'll feel better with Cutler than anyone if we have to draft a QB.

RE: Re: RE: Re: Payton interested in Cutler?

Starting to like Cutler, I am all for trading out of the second spot. 1. Cutler is participating. 2. He is making the throws and 3. He did a great job with a not so good team, less weapons around him.
