Player Overview

The "other" defensive end from South Carolina, Sutton doesn't have nearly the name notoriety of teammate and future top draft pick Jadeveon Clowney, but he won't be overlooked by NFL scouts.

Forced to play behind Clowney, Melvin Ingram and Devin Taylor the past two seasons, Sutton has only six career sacks, but as fifth-year senior in 2013, it wouldn't be a shock if he comes close to doubling his career sack total. He saw one start a year ago and was often subbed in on passing downs, sometimes at defensive tackle just to get him on the field.

Although it will be tough to take your eyes off Clowney when watching the Gamecocks in 2013, it'll be worth it when Sutton takes advantage of all the attention blockers give to Clowney's side of the field.

04/04/2014 - Week 5 Pro Day Takeaways: Clowney sails, Henderson bails...4. South Carolina Pro Day more than just Clowney...While all of the hype centered on superstar pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, several other former Gamecocks put forth strong workouts during Wednesday's workout. As a Combine snub, fellow pass rusher Chaz Sutton needed an impressive workout and sources on hand indicate that is precisely what he delivered. After measuring in at 6-foot-3, 245 pounds, Sutton was clocked in the mid 4.6s, recorded a 35.5" vertical jump and posted 27 reps on the bench press, similar numbers to the ones Clowney posted in Indianapolis. Like Clowney, Sutton was asked to participate in defensive line and linebacker drills, showing burst, balance and enough flexibility to intrigue scouts from 4-3 and 3-4 teams, alike.

Athletic wideout Bruce Ellington (5-foot-9, 198) elected to stand on his Combine numbers but showed off his light feet and balance and natural hands during his positional workout. Ellington signed and starred as a freshman with South Carolina to play basketball so the development he's already shown as a route-runner had scouts buzzing. Quarterback Connor Shaw, cornerbacks Victor Hampton and Jimmy Legree and defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles also worked out. Their efforts were characterized as "solid but not sensational." - Rob Rang,
