2018 NFL Draft Prospect: Courtland Sutton

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton‘s final game at Southern Methodist ended in disappointment as the Mustangs were demolished 51-10 by the Louisiana Tech in the Frisco Bowl. He finished the game with six receptions for 68 receiving yards and was heavily targeted by SMU quarterback Ben Hicks. Sutton ends his career second in SMU history in receiving touchdowns (31) and third in receiving yards (3,152). He is one of just three SMU receivers to post 3,000 career receiving yards. The consensus among many NFL Draft gurus is that the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Sutton is a middle to late first-round pick. Can Sutton’s metrics match up to the hype?


Sutton played his high school football at Brenham High School in Texas. As a junior, he was named first-team All-District as a safety. As a senior, he was named first-team All-District as a tight end and second team as a safety. A three-star recruit, he chose SMU over offers from BYU, Colorado, and Rice. Sutton was signed to play safety but ultimately transitioned to WR.
