CFB Chronicles: Courtland Sutton and His Heavy-Hitting Comparables

Courtland Sutton announced himself to the nation as a redshirt freshman in 2015, posting a 49/862/9 line in 12 games.  It was his first full season as a wide receiver after initially playing safety, as well as basketball for SMU. Now in 2016, he’s a Biletnikoff Award Watch List candidate – one of just 7 underclassmen on the 53-member list – and left little doubt that he belongs among the nation’s elite WRs racking up 162 yards and 3 touchdowns on just 4 catches last Saturday in the Mustangs’ season opener against North Texas. Should we discount Sutton’s meteoric rise because of lack of competition or the fact that he plays in a receiver friendly offensive system under head coach Chad Morris? How does Sutton compare to past WRs in similar situations?
