"Many" in the NFL believe SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton could land in the top 10 picks this April, according to Albert Breer.

Sutton is a very fun player to watch and is on his way to the Senior Bowl. On the surface this looks like a bold statement that Sutton could be drafted this early, but remember three receivers were selected in the top 10 picks last April. The rookie receiver class has really struggled as a whole. We preferred Corey Davis to Sutton, but Sutton has a really nice size and skill combination.

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton has received a Senior Bowl invitation.

Our own Josh Norris recently wrote about Sutton's game and came away very impressed. At 6-foot-3 and 215-pounds, Sutton still wins after the catch with fluidity and movement. He also can win naturally at the catch point thanks to his big frame. Receiver and corner matchups are one of our favorite parts of all-star games, and Sutton could be the top receiver in attendance.

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton hauled in seven receptions for 123 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Sutton bounced back nicely after laying an egg last week in a showdown with UCF. He has 112 or more receiving yards in four of his past six outings, and he has totaled 11 touchdown receptions and one scoring run through 10 outings this season. He has a bright future at the next level, and he'll add to his big stat totals in a potential high-scoring battle next week in Memphis.
Nov 11 - 8:00 PM

SMU junior RB Xavier Jones rushed 18 times for 106 yards and a score in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Jones has visited the end zone in four consecutive games, and seven total times this season. With a quarterback like Ben Hicks, the run game is often overlooked, but Jones has a chance at a 1,000-yard season with a double-digit rushing touchdown total. He could have another big day next week in a potential shootout with Memphis.
Nov 11 - 7:57 PM

SMU redshirt sophomore QB Ben Hicks completed 16 of his 29 pass attempts for 261 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's 43-40 loss at Navy.

Hicks continues to be very productive, win or lose. He has at least one touchdown pass in each of his 10 starts, and two or more scoring strikes in eight of his outings. He fits the system of Chad Morris very well, and he is just a sophomore. Hicks should have another giant stat line in a potential shootout against Memphis next weekend.
Nov 11 - 7:55 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn caught 11 passes for 47 yards in a 31-24 loss to Central Florida on Saturday.

The big catch total is no surprise -- this is a player that had a streak of catching 15 straight passes in three games, after all -- but the low-yardage certainly is. Quinn (6'1/200) won't look back on this one fondly, as he also had a crucial drop on 4th and 3 that ended the Mustangs last drive of the game. Quinn will look to up the yardage next weekend against Navy.
Nov 5 - 2:08 PM

SMU redshirt sophomore WR James Proche caught seven passes for 173 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 loss to UCF.

The Mustangs are headlined at wideout by Courtland Sutton and Trey Quinn, but Proche is more than capable of stellar showings in his own right. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder started out Saturday's game with a bang, hauling in an 86-yard touchdown early in the first quarter and proceeding to add to that early yardage spark as the game unfolded. This was his third 100-yard performance of the campaign and his best overall game on the yardage front.
Nov 4 - 11:29 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton caught six passes for 136 yards in a 38-34 victory over Tulsa on Friday.

Sutton (6'4/214) has now gone over 100 yards in three of the last four games. The only thing the junior wideout was unable to do was find the end zone, but to say he was a big part of SMU putting up 38 points is an understatement. He's one of the most productive receivers in all of college football, and a legit first-round candidate should he enter the draft. SMU takes on UCF next week.
Oct 28 - 12:38 AM

SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn caught eight passes for 101 yards and two scores in a 38-34 victory over Tulsa on Friday.

Quinn (6'1/200) had a fantastic game, but for the first time since September 23, he didn't have 15 or more catches. That streak likely doesn't get broken anytime soon. Even with "only" seven catches, Quinn was able to hook up with Ben Hicks on two scores, the second a 23-yarder that gave the Mustangs a 28-21 lead. Quinn and the Mustangs will have a marquee AAC matchup next week against Central Florida.

MMQB's Albert Breer remains says SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton remains "very raw" and a polarizing prospect.

"He doesn’t run any routes and he’s not polished," said an AFC exec. "He makes plays but he looks lost in zone coverage . . . There just aren’t many big guys that move the way he moves. He’s a great kid, a little naïve, a real small-town type. If he can drop a little weight and learn to get through his mistakes, there’s something there." The 6-foot-4, 214-pound Sutton has over 1,800 yards and 19 touchdowns since the beginning of last season.

SMU senior DE Dimarya Mixon will miss the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.

This means Mixon's collegiate career is likely over. This was his first season with SMU after transferring from Tennessee and he recorded 2.5 tackles for loss, including 1.5 sacks, prior to the injury.

SMU redshirt sophomore QB Ben Hicks completed 26-of-37 passes for 295 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 31-28 overtime win over Cincinnati.

Hicks just keeps on ticking. He's now thrown at least two touchdown passes in six of seven contests. For the year as a whole, the Manning Award watch-lister has thrown for 1,967 yards with a 17/6 TD/INT ratio. He is just two touchdown passes shy of matching his total from last season.
Oct 22 - 2:56 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Trey Quinn is the first FBS player in the 21st century to catch at least 15 passes in three straight games.

Quinn caught 15 against UConn at the end of September before stepping it up with 17 catches versus Houston and Cincinnati in his past two games. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder has snagged 71 passes for 773 yards and five touchdowns on the year.
Oct 22 - 2:09 PM

SMU junior RB Xavier Jones rushed for 80 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in Saturday's 31-28 overtime win over Cincinnati.

Jones (5'10/193) notched a three-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter. He's now surpassed 70 yards rushing in five of seven games this season. A 1,000-yard season is probably beyond the pale at this juncture barring a string of 100-yard showings, but the junior's done a consistent job for the Mustangs nonetheless.
Oct 21 - 8:18 PM

SMU redshirt junior WR Courtland Sutton caught six passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 overtime win over Cincinnati.

The SMU passing attack was having all sorts of fun on Saturday, with Trey Quinn catching 17 passes and Sutton serving as the team's end-zone contributor. The 6-foot-4, 214-pound Sutton has grabbed four of his nine touchdowns on the year in the last three games. He's very much turning it up after a slow start.
