Cutler, who stands at six-foot-three and weighs in at 233 pounds, is a rugged and tough athlete. Although his quickness and footwork are not the best, the QB can make any throw required, including those where the target is in a tight space. Cutler exudes calm and has a cool demeanor. In his first two years, he’s had trouble hanging onto the ball and he’s also thrown some bad passes.

As long as he takes care of his health, he should excel in the NFL.
