His spider chart looks amazing. Very above average in every measurable except 40.

I was thinking cross between Rod and BMarsh.

Can't help but wonder though ... only NFL guy at his pro day was Jason Garrett, prolly on his way to work.

The Cowboys ran him through his pro day workout. He was terrific in drills during his pro day. As was Trey Quinn.

No doubt Dallas was set to draft him. Drafting him and Hamilton, who I think will be a good pro too, will provide them with options next year in terms of the cap. There were questions about Thomas and Sanders this offseason, so you know they will come up again next year. Next time though the Broncos have possible alternatives which they didn't this time.

Sutton can contribute this year. He can play anywhere—inside or outside. Also, while Butt & Fumagalli are probably more of the Y TE, why couldn’t Sutton play the role of a quasi-Z(or F) TE when needed? And no, I’m not saying move him to TE, I am just saying when he master’s the playbook, move him all around the line and get favorable matchups.

This kid is not just a talent, he has good character and is a team guy.

I get a great feeling about this young man. He's obviously a great person... hope he brings that to the field.

I really like this pick and think he will contribute right away. I love how big and physical he is and love how he can go and make contested catches. I do wonder though if the fact he is constantly making contested catches in college against quite honestly mostly weaker competition is because he struggles to create separation. Either way though he looks the part, has a lot of good qualities, and I think he will be the first offensive skill player Elway has picked in a long time to contribute in a positive way.

Too small. 218 lbs and he's not fit for that TE route role.

TOTALLY reminds me of Brandon Marshall. Same size, weight, speed and ability.

Sutton can make the first guy miss.

Brandon had one good year in college (Sr) and Courtland had two with the same production. (Jr.Sr.)

Well, maybe, but I can’t help but think that he would be just fine with the majority of the routes Julius Thomas ran, and wouldn’t pull himself out of the game for a hangnail.

The one impression from watching his highlights is how he well he catches those contested catches giving Denver another tall go-get-it option in the redzone. Something we have been missing since we had DT and Julius Thomas with PM.

Difficult to ever separate Brandon Marshall the talent from the immature man child in Denver. I got so sick of him that I quit paying attention to what he could do as a football player. After he left Denver, I actually rooted against him and doubted his sincerity when he appeared to mature. This guy could have been HOF talent but he was held back by what was between his ears.

I know BS or contrived “player talk” when I see it. Just look at this kid when he talks about being dedicated to getting better and learning. His face lights up. That is not fake, it’s the real deal.

If Sutton doesn’t make it in this league, it won’t be because he lacked dedication to his craft.

I did not see this article posted here, but apologize if I missed it.

Nice read on interview with Larry Brown (former Nuggets coach) on Courtland Sutton about the character of this young man:

http://gazette.com/article/1625191?TC_SC_REF

Quote:
If you’re Larry Brown, you remember David Thompson, Danny Manning, Allen Iverson.

You don’t remember Courtland Sutton.

Larry Brown remembered Courtland Sutton. He remembered Sutton's first practice. He remembered a hustle rebound in a practice drill. He remembered everything about Courtland Sutton, the basketball player.

“When I saw you wanted to talk about Courtland it got my attention,” Brown said. “I’ll talk all day about Courtland. Special, special guy. His leadership, his personality. Just thrilled for him to go to the Broncos.”

I like Larry Brown. He was the high water mark of Nugget's coaching, and had a lot to do with the reason there was an ABA/NBA merger. His bold pursuit of David Thompson and Marvin Webster in the 1970's with the backing of Nuggets GM Carl Scheer was one of the top 5 Denver sports events in history. Without those two, the Nuggets would have become the Virginia Squires or the Kentucky Colonels, fading into memory and ending up as the answer to a sports history trivia question. Say what you want about the franchise, but Denver has an NBA team mostly because of those guys.

Having said all that...Larry was enamored with Emanuel Mudiay as well.

I really hope he's right about Sutton though. The kid looks like a find on tape, and we need a 3rd WR pretty badly.

That’s an excellent read, and just confirms what I saw in the kid during the introduction PC I referred to above.

A buddy of mine who watches a ton of college ball doesn't think Sutton will be able to get separation, but did say he had good hands and was physical when fighting for the ball. Still though I will take slower with great hands over fast that drops everything.
