We Bet You Didn’t Know These Things About Courtland Sutton

Being a football star isn’t a feat Courtland Sutton rushed into, it took him hard work perseverance and all the physical push every player needs. That is why even after attaining such career success, he prefers to pass down all he has learned to young student-athletes hoping to become like him in the near future.

With so many accolades to his name, one of the less talked about awards he has received which speaks much about him is the Spirit Award which he bagged during his time at SMU. The award follows how well he has inspired young athletes on ways to achieve their athletic dreams. Today, while he remains one of the most sought players under the Denver Broncos football franchise, his multiple fans out there think his skills and football strategies remind them of another mind-blowing wide receiver, Kenny Britt.

Who is Courtland Sutton?

Born in Brenham, Texas, on October 10, 1995, American wide receiver, Courtland Sutton is the son of Ryan and Phelicia Marshall who raised him three hours south of Dallas in Brenham, Texas.

His passion for football started from a very young age with the likes of football wide receiver Dez Bryant as his role model. More like he was destined to be a Cowboy, Sutton grew up as a true fan of the Dallas Cowboys which isn’t a surprise given that he was raised just three hours south of Dallas.

While his parents proposed quality education for him, young Sutton only dreamt of becoming a footballer. He finally made a good start when he became a student at Brenham High School.

Sutton did not waste much time to expose his hidden football skills in the school, he was named first-team All-District as a tight end in his senior year. He finished his high school season in 2013 and decided to join the Southern Methodist University (SMU) Mustangs football program in 2014. He signed with the SAMU as a safety but later moved to play offense though he couldn’t appear much in games as a true freshman due to an ankle injury.

Picking up after his medical redshirt, Courtland continued to perform better. He recorded 49 receptions for 862 yards and 9 touchdowns in his Redshirt freshman year while he finished his Sophomore year with 76 receptions for 1246 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also had 68 receptions for 1085 yards and 12 touchdowns in his junior year, giving him a total of 195 receptions for 3,220 receiving yards and 31 touchdowns.

Career Stats and NFL Draft Profile

Just after his junior year in college, Courtland Sutton announced his decision to go professional. Looking at his skills and achievements, one would think he would be a standout athlete every NFL franchise will go for. However, the reverse was the case. He wasn’t one of the highly sought-after recruits, instead, the Denver Broncos selected him in round two (40th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft. This made him the third wide receiver to be selected that year. Sutton debuted with 2 receptions for 45 yards in a game that earned the Broncos a 27–24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. In the 5th week of the season’s game, Sutton recorded his first professional touchdown.

Thus far, Sutton’s NFL career stats say he has a total of 30 reception for 572 receiving yards and 3 receiving touchdowns with 19.1 as his receiving yard per reception.

Height, Weight and Other Body Measurements

The Brenham-born wide receiver is a tall and handsome young man. He has a height measurement of 6 feet 4 inches while his body weighs 99 kg (218 lb). As a wide receiver, his hand is 9-3/4 inch wide. He also has a 6-foot-6 wingspan which gives him a massive catch radius and makes him an even bigger target for quarterbacks.

On the NFL radar, Sutton runs the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds. He has a 35½ inch vertical leap and bench-presses 225 pounds 18 times. As a big downfield target, Courtland Sutton is one of the few who is not easily intimidated by anyone. The self-described country boy is extremely confident in his skills and takes pride in his roots and physical style. As part of his work ethics, Sutton believes in earning everything he gets. He gives credit to his parents who were hard on him in terms of making him understand the value attached to working hard to get what you want.
