Is Will Sutton A Better Value Than Aaron Donald For The Dallas Cowboys?
That’s a pretty bold question. Aaron Donald is considered a can’t miss prospect who looks like he is a lock to go in the top 15 of the NFL Draft. Will Sutton on the other hand, has had his draft day value fluctuate between late in the first to possibly a day three pick. If you were just watching Will Sutton’s 2012 tape, we would be arguing right now about who is better prospect; Aaron Donald or Will Sutton?
But after Arizona State asked Sutton to gain weight in 2013 which resulted in a sub-par year, Sutton made matters worse with a poor showing at the NFL Combine. Sutton currently weighs about 285 pounds, which was his playing weight in 2012, but what do you do with this player? His 2012 tape was so much different than 2013 that you feel like you are watching a totally different player. Where do you draft Sutton? What position suites him best in the NFL? What player are you drafting? These are all questions that NFL teams must ask themselves. The question I am asking today is this: Would you rather have Aaron Donald in the top 15 or Will Sutton in the 2nd or 3rd round?
