Player Scouting Report
Players Scouting Reviewer :
Position :Cornerback [CB]
Struggles in press coverage
Agile and athletic defensive back
Shows excellent recovery speed
doesn't always take good angels to the ball
very good open field tackler
Better in man off as opposed to man.
Adds value as a punt return specialist
great recovery speed; times his jumps to contest jump balls; excels at making open field tackles; changes direction quickly; quick to diagnose action in passing situationa.
Struggles in press coverage; lacks elite deep speed and prone to letting receivers get behind him; effort isn't always there. Will struggle covering larger receivers; will occasionally get caught staring into the backfield.
Sutton is a small but athletic corner back. His lack of size and speed, along with his quick feet and overall athleticism, suggests that he has a future covering the slot receiver in the NFL. He will be helped by his ability to impact the game as a return specialist and figures to be a solid 4th corner back as a rookie before taking over as a primary nickel corner.
