There was a large crowd on hand at SMU's pro day, including receivers coaches from the Philadelphia Eagles, New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens. Both Mustangs wideouts performed better than expected.

Potential first-round pick Courtland Sutton stood on most of his combine numbers but did touch 35 inches in the vertical jump and 10-foot-6 in the broad jump, which represented a two-inch improvement from his combine number.

Sutton looked terrific during drills and was worked hard by the Dallas Cowboys. He caught the ball very well and ran solid routes. He was also commended as coachable by teams in attendance. 

As was reported earlier this week by Rotoworld, Sutton met with the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints before pro day. After the workout, he met with the Tennessee Titans at length, and the Baltimore Ravens are also showing a lot of interest in Sutton.

Trey Quinn timed 4.45 in the 40, a significant improvement from his combine mark of 4.55. He too looked terrific running routes and catching the ball during drills. Scouts left the workout comparing Quinn to Cooper Kupp, the third-round pick of the Los Angeles Rams last April.

Pass rusher Justin Lawler, who had a good week of practice in the lead up to the Shrine Game, timed 5.02 in the 40 and 4.41 in the short shuttle. The hard-working defender has top-30 visits set with the Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Bucs.

Center Evan Brown put up some impressive numbers, including 36 reps on the bench press, 36 inches in the vertical jump and times of 4.97 in the 40 and 4.52 in the short shuttle.

Former SMU safety Darrion Millines, a player we rated last season, completed 17 reps on the bench press and timed 4.69 in the 40.
