Cowboys eyeing SMU WR Courtland Sutton in second round of draft

Rookie Sutton could be Thomas or Sanders' eventual replacement Morris has 3 former SMU players drafted

Freeman gives the Broncos much-needed depth at running back heading into the season. The corner will be asked to use his length (he's 6'1) to help bat away passes and was a standout in his special teams coverage, an area where the Broncos desperately need to improve.

Mix Demaryius Thomas' size and strength with Emmanuel Sanders' pedigree and athleticism and you've got Courtland Sutton, the wide receiver chosen in the second round by the Denver Broncos. Freeman (6'0/229) was a rare four-year starting running back at OR, setting school records in rushing yards (5,621) and touchdowns (64) and averaging 5.94 yards per carry.

"We did, " Elway said.

A dominant runner at OR who was so good as a true freshman that the Ducks moved incumbent 1,000-yard runner Byron Marshall to wide receiver, Freeman's four-year career yielded 5,621 yards (5.9 YPC) and 60 touchdowns in 51 games, his 79 receptions for 814 yards and four touchdowns giving further reason to expect an eventual three-down impact.

"I want to be the one to deliver that blow", Freeman said of his bruising style. "But it wasn't a concern when we took him".

"He's big and he can really run", Elway said.

18th running back in program history to be selected in the NFL Draft.

"I loved playing safety, but I feel like in my heart I was a true receiver", Sutton said.

Sutton, a Brenham native, played three years at SMU following his redshirt season. "I think those are the things that got me to the point I'm at right now, being a top-tier wide receiver and also learning and understanding how to grow at my position". Sutton is coming off a strong 2017 campaign where he made 68 catches for 1,085 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He was most dominant as a senior, including a 2.5 sack effort against Boston College that left Eagles' coach Steve Addazio lost for solutions: "We doubled Chubb with the tackle", he said at the time.

"I am going to do it above and beyond with what is inside of me".

"John said it, in the future he could be our No. 1 guy", Joseph said.
