    Could be someone we want to focus on next season, depending on what happens with Starks. I am ASU alum, and just love this guy. He's a beast with a nice motor. Not that tall, but he is like a small strong thick pitbull.


    CLEVELAND, Ohio - Arizona State University defensive tackle Will Sutton has been named a First-Team All-American by Phil Steele, the publication announced Wednesday.

    Sutton also earned a preseason All-Pac-12 First Team nod from Phil Steele and is one of six Pac-12 student-athletes on the All-America first team. He became ASU's sixth winner of the Morris Trophy and the 18th consensus All-American, including first since 2007, and was also the fifth Devil to win the Pac-10/12 conference Defensive Player of the Year award. His 23.5 tackles for loss and 13 sacks in 2012 both rank fourth on the school's single-season list, and he led the Pac-12 with 1.08 sacks and 1.96 TFLs per game. Sutton also added 63 tackles, three forced fumbles and five pass breakups, despite missing one game and the majority of another due to injury.

    By the way I think there are two players that fit this mold and between the two of them I consider Aaron Donald to be the more sure bet at the next level.

    As of right now, that would be a pretty good pick I think. Timmy Jernigan is a monster.

    But honestly fast forward to next year and I could foresee offensive tackle becoming a bigger priority, especially for this front office. They like the value of tackles in the 1st round. Could also see a guard, tight end or corner happening.

    I am going to keep my eye on Sutton. He has such a quick burst off the line and great hands to get past and through O-lineman. Jernigan is bigger but not as fast. Can't wait for college ball to kick off Aug. 29th.

    I like Sutton a lot. I like Aaron Donald more. He's more translatable to the NFL, IMO. I like Timmy Jernigan a hell of a lot. Those three are good. Not sure what to think of Louis Nix yet.

    Sutton is a bust, but yes, depending how this season goes, OL may be a more pressing need

    A bit bold to declare Will Sutton a bust. I like Timmy Jernigan and Aaron Donald more, but that doesn't mean Sutton sucks.

    The May scouting roundtables came back with a 5th round grade for Will Sutton. Those and the preseason grades are notorious for being superficial (which means heavily skewed toward measurement fundamentals and prototypes).

    Mini Sapp is intriguing, but Ireland very rarely takes a player who doesn't fit the size prototype. In fact, I can't think of any unless you factor in Bess who wasn't drafted.

    I think he's veering off the prototype path at a pretty steady clip nowadays. He's always said there are some positions he cares about it because if you look historically the position is just that tightly bound to the prototypes, and he's also said there are positions where the prototype doesn't seem that tightly bound to performance.

    I think you look at Geno Atkins and then you look at Aaron Donald and you see the same type of player. I think you look at Will Sutton and you do see some Warren Sapp.

    They've given that grade to him two years in a row now, I believe.

    i'm not sure but if he is a senior like i think he is this year (maybe he's a redshirt junior) i think sutton will eat any interior lineman put across from him in one on ones senior bowl week for lunch...that dudes too damn quick and too explosive

    he ate cals oline for lunch single handedly beat them by himself (and i'm not even joking) and that line had brian schwenke a pretty good looking prospect and draft talent in his own right in the pivot

    i get that he's undersized but so was geno atkins...and i think while atkins is more powerful and brute a player this kids pass rush talents short area lateral quickness and agility and quickness into gaps is pretty stellar...and once he gets in the backfield he's got you...hard kid to get away from once he's clean

    That's good news because Sutton would seem to be a perfect fit opposite Solai if the Dolphins keep him over Starks. At least initially, Miami could use Sutton on passing downs. I do see some Warren Sapp in his game.

    I could see him falling to R2 because of lack of size, but even that seems like a stretch. Round 5 is ridiculous unless he has a major injury.

    yeah sf he's gonna get dinged for his size...no doubt...but i don't really care...he's too productive and flashes too many talents...make him a nickle interior rusher early (ie starks replacement if we let him walk) and i think he does work for you...and eventually works his way into more snaps...

    Would rather have Aaron Donald. Versatile.
