Know nothing about this guy. Hoping to be enlightened by someone.
He was projected to go as early as the first round, but there are concerns about his ability to separate. https://www.nfl.com/prospects/courtland-sutton?id=32462018-0002-5600-18de-e88c26b17c1c
Which is weird, because he put up elite shuttle and 3-cone times.
DT just needs to take this guy under his wing and teach him how to run routes.
He and Sanders went to the same school. Having Sanders coach him on routes may be even better than DT
I actually really agree with that writeup — lacks speed and will need to make up for it with route running (which, to be fair, he looks like he’s got pretty quick feet for his size). Probably caps as a WR2, unless he really can catch like DeAndre Hopkins.
Did the coaches scout him at the Senior Bowl?
The Senior Bowl, where WR James Washington was a star!
I’m pleasantly surprised by the route tree. If he’s caught passes on all routes but the comeback, he should have at least a foundation to build on.

Detroit just picked one of my Plan B running backs. Kerryon Johnson
-sorry wrong forum
He would have been great to get.
Kerryon was my dream draft pick
Let my doubts be washed away with him living up to these words.
Great route runner? Ok, guy.
So he’s sunshine?
He might be a little better.
Or he might be worse
Highly unlikely, but I guess it’s possible.
Shoot. Oliver to ATL. I was hoping we’d snag him somehow.
He is going to be a Pro-Bowl CB.
Courtland Sutton says that he patterns his game after Terrell Owens. Sutton enjoys pancaking defensive backs when blocking. He likes to play both in the slot and outside. He seems like a very intelligent player, which I like.
40. Denver Broncos | Courtland Sutton | WR | SMU | A
There may have been bigger needs elsewhere, but the value here is enough to warrant a high grade. Sutton could make a strong case as the best overall pass-catcher in this year’s draft, thanks to his combination of size, length and athleticism. He’s a red-zone nightmare with a similar skill set to Demaryius Thomas, who could be a cap casualty soon. Sutton is just dripping with upside, and he could have easily come off the board in the first round.
Open question for the tape watchers: Is Sutton closer to DT or is he closer to Laquan Treadwell?
My limited study leans the latter.
We still need a MFer to pucker up the Safeties now and then.
