lol @ you guys hating on him.
I'd agree with the award and not just because I'm an ASU fan. I thought he had an outstanding year, was just as influential on the play as last year.
Dude I did not hate him. In fact I loved Will Sutton. Last year I thought he was 1st round pick and I stated it on this board. I even said the grade that the advisory board gave him was BS. I think he has 10 less sacks and 24 less tackles then last year. He gained a lot of weight in a very short of amount of time which is ill advited. It will hurt his draft stock. Sorry. You can't tell me his draft is better with 10 less sacks and 24 less tackles. That doesn't mean I think he's the worst dlinemen in college football.
You said he'd go undrafted, that's about as harsh as you can say about a player like Sutton. If thats not "hate" I'd be curious what is "Hate." If I said Jordan Matthews would be undrafted, I'd consider that hating on a player.
You watched him play Wisconsin, right? Where were all of Wisconsin's big runs? To the outside, Wisconsin never ran inside against ASU due to Sutton. It was all Melvin Gordon to the outside.
Jadevon Clowney has 3 sacks on the year, you think he is going to be drafted outside the first round? Stats don't tell half the story.
-a clip of Sutton vs Stanford above^^^
-Il' go over the pass protection on Sutton's side and run plays to Sutton's side
-First play, see Stanford roll 4 blockers to Sutton's side?
-at :30, notice the whole Stanford line shift (and fall over) on Sutton?-1:05, run to Sutton's side, loss of 2
-1:10 run at Sutton, gain of 1
-1:35, Sutton is double teamed and they run an option, QB takes it the opposite why Sutton pushed the 2 lineman. Sutton makes the tackle still. Gain of 5 by QB
-1:45, Sutton gets penetration on 3rd and short, but run to other side
-1:47 Sutton destroys the lineman on 1v1, runs WR reverse to other side of field
-1:50, run to Sutton's side that bounces outside away from Sutton, gain of 5
-2:15, Sutton double teamed on pass rush, beats the first guy but picked up by 2nd
-2:20 run to Sutton's side, loss of 2
-2:30, Sutton takes on 3 blockers who all go low on Sutton and Sutton almost stops the RB who gains 1 yard for the TD (by stretching it over the goal line, otherwise he was stopped, his knees never crossed the LOS). On that play Sutton actually made the stop but his legs get buckled by the lineman below him and he falls to the ground
-3:20, Sutton shoots his gap and Stanford hits the other side, 9 yard gain. The problem is, and this is an assumption, is Stanford shifts their TE and it looks to me Sutton switches his gap assignment
-3:35, run to the other side but still Sutton is double teamed
-3:51, Sutton is pulled to the ground by a holding
-3:55 looks to me that Sutton's legs are tripped up but the falling Center, but you'll notice RB's play was to hit Sutton's gap, he bounces it all the way outside for the TD. But I'll count it against Sutton. 11 yard gain.
-4:25, Sutton has a great pass rush move and is beating his guy when Hogan gets the ball out (incomplete)
-4:40, run to Sutton's side, gain of 6. Stanford keeps running a play that allows Sutton to beat his guy and that walls off the other side of the gap
-4:55 run to Sutton's side, on the outside, gain of 6
5:00 Sutton double teamed on run, gain of 6
-5:14 Sutton TFL on run play, loss of 1
-5:35 run to Sutton's side, gain of 1
-6:05 is another great example of Stanford's design on pass protection, they keep selling out to Sutton's side, 6:49 another example
-7:15, Sutton makes tackle on RB on other side of line, gain of 4
-8:30 Sutton blows up his blocker, run gain of 3
-8:53, Sutton does an excellent job holding the point of attack, runs to the outside for gain of 7
-9:03 run to Sutton's side, gain of 2
-9:11 run to Sutton's side, TFL for loss of 2
-9:25 run to Sutton's side, gain of 3
-9:30 run to Sutton's side, zero gain
-9:39 run to Sutton's side, gain of 6
-9:47 run to Sutton's side, loss of 2
-10:15 run to Sutton's side, gain of 1
Total runs to Sutton's side: 23
Yards gained: 68 yards
And yet the perception he is he had a terrible game. Out of the 23 run plays I saw, he maybe failed to hold his point of attack or get penetration 2-3 times. The only time he was pushed back in runs is when he was running horizontal towards run plays on the other side of the field....
On pass rush, I don't know what you expect when the entire team stacks against him. Yankey had 1v1 on Sutton about 3 times that Sutton didn't penetrate against him in pass rush situations.
