South Carolina DE Chaz Sutton "had a terrific day" at Wednesday's pro day, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.
"Most on hand felt Sutton looked better than [Jadeveon] Clowney in linebacker drills," Pauline observed. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Sutton clocked a 4.66-4.67 forty with a 1.69 ten-yard split. He added 27 reps on the bench, and leaped 35.5 inches in the vertical and 9-8 in the broad jump. "I graded the senior as a potential fourth round pick in August and he fell off the board after a terrible season," Pauline wrote. "I'm told one of the biggest reasons for not only Sutton's drop off but Clowney's as well, was the loss of defensive line coach Brad Lawing, who moved south to become the assistant head coach/defensive line coach at Florida. Sources say Lawing has given positive reviews for both Sutton and Clowney to any NFL personnel people who have asked." Wed, Apr 2, 2014 10:45:00 PM

South Carolina senior DE Chaz Sutton will be listed as day-to-day for the remainder of the season while dealing with a mid-foot sprain.

"Every practice is important, so I want to get out here and do as much as I can — as much as my foot will allow me to do," Sutton said. "I am out here every day like the rest of these guys trying to get better." The senior pass rusher has had an up and down season thus far, but has the talent to make an impact form multiple spots.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes South Carolina senior DE Chaz Sutton outplayed junior DE Jadeveon Clowney during the week one contest against UNC.

That is at least what the state sheet said, with Sutton making two tackles for loss. "He needs to step it up," Kiper said regarding Clowney. "We are talking about a defensive end that teams can scheme and at least contain a little bit. That opened up Chaz Sutton last week, but (Clowney) needs to play better this week against Georgia in order to guarantee being the No. 1 pick." We like Sutton, but feel like Clowney's impact is being overlooked.

South Carolina senior DE Chaz Sutton was credited with four tackles, two going for a loss, in Thursday's game against UNC.

Sutton starts opposite Jadeveon Clowney after lining up as the third defensive end behind Devin Taylor last season. He has the athleticism and size to win inside or outside, but Sutton needs to maximize his length and strength at the point of attack in order to achieve maximum effectiveness. He's a very slippery athlete.

Crediting his offseason work ethic, South Carolina junior DE Chaz Sutton has really impressed coaches in his limited snaps this season.

Sutton has a history of medical issues that forced him to redshirt in 2009 with a hamstring injury, but has since made the most of his time at defensive end. Through four games, Sutton has four tackles for loss and three sacks while being locked in as the team's third defensive end. At times he has looked better than senior Devin Taylor, specifically with his get off and power at the edge point.
