    Strong Points: Three year-starter. Very productive. Great size and length. Very good athlete; smooth with speed and a burst. Excellent hands and ability to adjust to the ball. Very large receiving radius and can snatch throws away from body. Competes for the ball in traffic. Quick in and out of cuts and is able to get separation. Productive both short and long. Strong runner after the catch with strength and some elusiveness. Willing blocker.

    Weak Points: Not a burner. Has a limited route tree in the SMU offense. Hasn't played vs. the toughest of competition. Semi-strider who doesn't always look as fast as he is.

    The Way We See It: A fourth-year junior, Sutton received a medical redshirt after playing just two games as a true freshman. Has been a three-year starter and very productive ever since. Sutton is tall and long with speed and very good overall athleticism. He is smooth and can get in and out of cuts very quickly to gain separation. Shows toughness and courage and competes for the ball in traffic. With his height and length, he has a huge receiving radius and adjusts to the ball very well. Has big hands and can snatch the ball. Consistently gets yards after the catch and has the ability to turn a short reception into a long gain. Effective both short and deep. Similar to Alshon Jeffery. Will be one of the first receivers drafted.
