Why I Drafted Jay Cutler, and What Happened from There

Very interesting piece by former Denver Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist on Jay Cutler, his pre-draft evaluation, and what went wrong for him in Denver. Maybe not many surprises in the piece, but a good insider perspective and a lot to chew on.
