Having built on tremendous production over the past two seasons with a solid junior year, SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton could be on the rise when it comes to his 2018 NFL Draft stock.
While the Mustangs struggled at times in 2017, Sutton, who will forgo his senior season next year and enter the draft, continued to piece together a resume that puts him among the best receivers in the country.
One NFL general manager, who spoke to Sporting News about a variety of topics, raved about the prospect whose frame and skills have led to Julio Jones comparisons.
"I think Sutton is the most underrated player in this draft," the GM said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. (NFL GMs are not allowed to comment publicly on current college players.) “He's got some flaws but you watch him on film and you see some things that translate well on Sundays.
"There’s a chance he’s the first wide receiver off the board."
