Courtland Sutton one of the biggest freaks in college football

SMU redshirt-junior wide receiver Courtland Sutton made Bruce Feldman's list of biggest freaks in college football. The Sports Illustrated columnist explained why.

Every year, Bruce Feldman releases his list of biggest freaks in college football, highlighting some of the top workout warriors and top athletes in the college game.

This year, SMU wide receiver and first team All-AAC selection Courtland Sutton made the list as the No. 18 overall freak.

Feldman highlighted Sutton with lofty praise.

"No college player I saw on the field last season aced the eye-ball test as much as this huge AAC wideout did," Feldman wrote

Sutton notched a 60-inch box jump at 6-4, 215 pounds with 6.4 percent body fat. Feldman said that SMU head coach Chad Morris compared Sutton to former Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who has great body control and ball skills, but Sutton is a bigger version.

He's the first SMU receiver to garner first-team all-conference honors since current Dallas Cowboy Cole Beasley in 2011, just one of the honors to his name.

In 2016, Sutton hauled in 76 receptions for 1,246 yards and 10 touchdowns. The 1,246 yards are a school record for a season and the Brenham, Texas native also set a single-game school record for receiving yards (252) on a career-high 13 receptions against USF.

Take a look at what Feldman is talking about with Sutton's big box jump.
