    I didn't give you enough credit for ranking Sutton #1. I thought he'd be the consensus #1, but I see Todd McShay ranked him 5th - terrible look! And, I've seen him ranked between 2nd and 4th in other publications.

    Sutton is a monster. He was my #3 eligible underclassman WR last year as a RS sophomore.

    Although I understand if McShay is extremely high on Ridley and Christian Kirk. I'd be interested in knowing who he has ranked ahead of Sutton and reasoning behind it if he provided any.

    He has D. Clark and A. Callaway - in addition to Ridley and Kirk - ahead of Sutton. Have to be an ESPN Insider to see his reasoning, and I'm not, but here's his top 10. The slideshow loads super slow, but the photos are in order (10-1), so you won't have to click on it. I'm a big Kirk fan, and I like Ridley, too, but I think Sutton has some space between him and the next guy.

    I figured he'd be high on Ridley and Kirk. Only issue with Ridley is age. He's already 22 years old and will be 23 in December.

    Antonio Callaway is supremely talented. But he can't stay out of trouble. Literally. I've lost count of his suspensions, and apparently hasn't learned a single thing from 'em.

    Not at all with him on D.J. Chark. I've seen him drop too many passes and he hears footsteps in traffic. Runs like a deer though.

    Carrington was in my top 5 Senior receivers, but like Callaway can't stay out of trouble. He just got kicked out of Oregon. I took him off all together after that.

    Carrington and Callaway have a long list of bad decision making. They've established what I consider a pattern once it reaches a certain point. Both talented enough to rank top 5 among my Senior and Underclassman receivers, but you have to understand they're more character risks. They can both clearly play in the NFL though.
