“From a physical skill set, I think Cutler has the biggest arm in the draft. I think he has a quicker release than either of the other two (Matt Leinart and Vince Young). He’s tough. I think he played behind a very poor offensive line without a whole lot of help. … When I look at that kid and what he did on tape, he can make throws that I don’t think the other two kids can make.”
Round Drafted: 1st
