Overview:

Sutton finished his career at SMU where he played in 39 career games, had 195 receptions, for 3220 receiving yards, and 31 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, is a great pass catcher, and is sure handed. He is a good deep threat, a good route runner, has good speed, was a go-to receiver for SMU, and commands double teams. He consistently beats his defender, he breaks tackles with ease, makes defenders miss with ease, and tough to take down. He is also a dynamic play maker, and he goes up and gets the ball. On the other hand, while he has good speed, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game. With all of that said, I expect Sutton to be one of the first 3 receivers taken when it is all said and done.
