Who is the best QB in the draft?

If you ask most people, they'll say Matt Leinart or Vince Young. But is it actually Jay Cutler? Chris Mortenson thinks so.

Cutler seems to be a bit of a cross between Matt Leinart and Vince Young. He's got a little stronger arm than Leinart, but he's a little more athletic. Playing in the SEC (the best football conference in the nation), Cutler through for over 3000 yards with a 21/9 TD/INT ratio. But this is playing with Vanderbilt, a team that traditionally really doesn't have a whole lot of talent. From all accounts, he's smart with the football, mobile enough, very good arm strength, and pretty durable. He was the first-team all-SEC QB as a freshman.

Where would I rate him? Hard to say at this point. I'd definitely still put Leinart above him, but to be honest, I'd have a real hard time deciding between Cutler and Young. But luckily, I don't have to.
