All of the attention from the trade that sent Jay Cutler to the Bears, has centered around Jay Cutler and his teammates. How cutlers value has fallen while players like Matt Forte, and Greg Olsen stock has risen.
Another Player whom stock as risen as well out of the trade is Kyle Orton.
Last year Orton passed for over 2,900 yards and had 21 total touchdowns 18 passing and 3 rushing. This year Orton has a better situation to produce better stats. He is now in the QB friendly offense off Josh McDaniels.
Orton now has better play making wide outs in Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal and tight end Tony Scheffler. Also Orton is on a team that the defense will force the offense to score a lot of points.
I don't think that he will be the Kurt Warner of this year, or even post the stats close to Jay Cutlers last year. Orton's stats should only get better from last year. I predict around 3,500 yards and 25 TDs.
He should be drafted as a No. 2 QB around rounds nine or 10. He has the potential to be a low end No. 1 QB this season.
