College football's best wide receiver prospect wasn't in the 2017 NFL draft, according to NFL scouts.

As good as Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross are—each was drafted in the top 10 this year—a wide receiver still in college has the potential to be better. And he's not even a Power Five player.

If you take a back-road drive through Texas on your way to Houston from Austin on Highway 290, you'll pass through Brenham. It's a small town of just over 15,000, hosting Blinn College—where Cam Newton played his JUCO ball—and Blue Bell ice cream. But this East Texas town is about to become known as the stomping ground of a top-tier wide receiver prospect.

Courtland Sutton was a first-team All-District performer as a tight end and safety for the Brenham Cubs. He was good enough to earn a 3-star rating from Rivals, Scout and ESPN as a high school player.
