ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – With the 40th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft the Broncos selected wide receiver Courtland Sutton from SMU.
Sutton had 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2017 after an impressive 2016 campaign where he recorded 1,246 yards and 10 touchdowns.
“I had no idea that I would be a Bronco,” Sutton said.
“I’m really excited to be a part of this organization and be a part of something that’s greater than myself.”
“I am a guy who is going to come to the field and demand respect wherever I am on the field, whether it is in the slot, whether it is on the outside, on the right or the left. Wherever I am at on the field, if it is a pass play or run play, defenses have to know where I am at because they know that I am going to do my job.”
“To just be able to have this opportunity, I’m blessed,” he said. “I’m very thankful for the Broncos organization giving me this opportunity to come in and prove myself and to help the organization get to where we want to get to.”
The Broncos have no picks remaining in the second round, but two have two picks in Friday’s third round. They’ll selected 71st and 99th overall.
