Sutton will join Max....

Have their ever been 2 Huskies invited to the Senior Bowl?



@JimNagy_SB

Quote:The @seniorbowl just added two-time @MACSports Defensive POY, @NIU_Football junior grad #15 Sutton Smith (@suttonsmith5). Undersized ‘tweeter rusher led the nation with 15 sacks and 26.5 TFL this year. He’ll be used as an off-the-ball OLB in Mobile. He’ll be a ST demon in NFL.

Smith and Scharping are the only 2 MAC players on the North team. 2 Buffalo players on South team - kind of weird.

Practices are televised in the afternoon all week on the NFL Network. That's often the best chance to really get a look at guys and hear the talk about them from scouts. I've got the DVR ready.

RE: sutton smith .. will play in senior bowl
Day 2 analysis from Espn:

Sutton Smith, an edge rusher out of Northern Illinois with 24.5 TFL and 15 sacks on the season, doesn't have the frame (6-0, 234) to play defensive end or 3-4 OLB in the NFL, and needs to show teams he can play off the line. He helped himself in that regard during one-on-ones with the running backs. He didn't always win, but he was competitive by showing good speed and change-of-direction skills.

Max Sharping had lots of playing time in Senior Bowl. I did not see much out of Smith, except on special teams.

Saw a full seven round mock draft yesterday—-Max to Bears in the 3rd round and Sutton to Browns in the 7th. Nice to see Max in the 3rd and very nice to see Sutton on the board. Sutt will improve his stock at the combine.

Does anyone know if Sutton has been officially invited to the combine?

RE: sutton smith .. will play in senior bowl
Feels like the senior bowl did more harm than good to Sutton’s draft status. Same thing happened to Jordan Lynch in the east-west shrine game. Then again 2 interceptions in your first 3 passes will do that.

Maybe a team should try him at running back.
He will be great on special teams.

There are teams that want Sutton, he will go before round 7.

I disagree. He did not show out in the Senior Bowl, he most likely will not be invited to the NFL combine (as only the top 250), and is considered too small for the position he is best at. He literally is a player without a position (too small for DE/OLB, and zero experience in ILB, MLB, SS or RB). Those kind of players have a tough time getting drafted.
I see him very similar to Jordan Lynch, one of the greatest to play at NIU, but he also was trying to make it out of position. At this point, I think he will be lucky to get drafted. He will get a free agent invite and will have fight to make the roster (also similar to Jordan Lynch)

I disagree. I think he will go in the 3rd or 4th round. The tape doesn’t lie, the stats don’t lie. When he’s rushing the passer he can’t be stopped, and is often getting tackles for loss no matter the competition. They were experimenting with him at the a Senior bowl. If they allow him to do what he’s good at he will be a game changer at the NFL level. Not good to compare him to Jordan Lynch. Nobody truly believed that Lynch would be a solid NFL QB.

Happy to see him compete at the Combine. I think his draft stock can only rise. Over 300 players are invited so it doesn’t mean a guarantee he will be drafted but I think he can turn some heads.
