Overall

Courtland Sutton is a great wide receiver and should be a fun player to watch in the NFL. He can be compared to Allen Robinson: they have a very similar style to play and a similar body type. Sutton should be a 2nd or 3rd round pick and should start contributing to his new NFL team right away, and he will likely develop into an elite wide out.
