With the exception of RB Matt Forte, it's not often you see an offensive player from the Bears show up on a top-10 list. At least, not for good reasons

Typically, Bears QB Jay Cutler shows up around the middle of the pack when rankings and lists show up in the offseason, but ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski has him ranked in the top-10.

"Physically, Cutler is as talented as any quarterback in the NFL. He's a power thrower with good accuracy. He has deceptive athleticism and movement. Not many bring the skill that Cutler has."

"He intuitively understands the NFL passing game. He knows when you get man coverage it's on the receivers to win. Cutler's going to throw the ball."

We know Cutler has the talent and intelligence to be one of the best in the league, but we've yet to see what he can really do when he's got a decent OL and set of WRs. This year should be a different story.

Do you think Cutler deserves to be in the top-10 this offseason? How high could you see him climbing in the next couple years?
