Video: Steelers CB Cameron Sutton Highlights – Tennessee Passes Defensed Compilation

The Pittsburgh Steelers recently selected cornerback Cameron Sutton in the third-round of the 2017 NFL Draft and the Tennessee product had quite a productive college career as he intercepted seven passes and broke up 30 more during a span of four years.

In an effort to show you how Sutton won at Tennessee, I have compiled most of his 37 total passes defensed for you in a video below. In fact, I was able to find all but six of them for you to watch.

Sutton’s video compilation begins with his eight total defensed passes in 2013 and that includes one of two interceptions that he recorded that season that he returned for a touchdown. Next, you’ll see 14 of his 16 total passes defensed from the 2014 season, which was statistically his best one. The compilation video finishes with most of Sutton’s defensed passes from the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

We will have more in-depth breakdowns of Sutton moving forward into the offseason, however, this compilation video should give you a good idea as to how he won in coverage at Tennessee.

  • Spencer Krick

    I think Cam’s going to be a great addition to our secondary.

    Is it football season yet?

  • Delboka

    Nice video. Seems to be at the right spot at the right time.

    I do worry about endzone jump balls.

  • Zach Holzworth

    He has really good closing quickness and I love that swat to knock the ball loose when the receiver gets his hands on it.

  • barry foster

    WE are suffering from post draft syndrome

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I love his scrappiness!

  • The Chin

    Plays the pocket well

  • Jeff McNeill

    The year before he was regarded as a better prospect and he dropped because of an injury.

  • barry foster

    Great value I don’t understand riff about db’s when we grabbed 2

  • Luke

    Tankersly, two-three years from now everyone will be complaining the team picked Sutton over Tankersly

  • Steel City Slim

    Hopefully he can be that guy that we’ve needed in our defensive backfield. Can’t wait to see him out there.

  • SilverSteel

    Just watched the video. Man this guy looks good in all the phases…good cover, quick feet, aggressive, and smart – liking this pick more and more. Plays taller than he is and times the jumps well.

  • SilverSteel

    I know, the wait is ridiculously long. They should extend the season!!! 🙂 I enjoy all of the pre season too. Watching the guys grow and compete is pretty awesome.

  • SilverSteel

    And I like both of the picks. The upside of Adams with his athleticism seems pretty promising.

  • Danielsteelstrong81

    He might be as good as burns

  • SkoolHouseRoxx

    I also hope Tomlin let him return punts! Put some young legs back there, coach!

  • barry foster

    No doubt !!

  • Ike Evans

    Told yall

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    I think Sutton will be fine against the Patriots (guys Amendola, Hogan, even Edelman). The problem will be tight ends or taller WR’s (which is exactly why many fans wanted us to trade up for Obi in the 2nd round).

  • StarSpangledSteeler

    Ike did call this one from the VERY beginning. I’m still very concerned about Sutton’s deep speed and physicality, but I certainly hope you’re right about him.

  • Robert E Lil

    He’s not

  • Robert E Lil

    He’s a mid level cb and that’s good enough for this team based on who we have. But I do worry that he will be forced into action earlier than he ought to…and we all know how important confidence is at that position at this level. S o I hope Tomlin protects him a bit early

  • Delboka

    Man I really wanted Obi in Pitt. But we couldnt afford to trade away picks in the later rounds though. Getting a long snapper was totally necessary. Some many teams wanted him. The steelers are so much better now that we drafted the LS.

  • Jim Foles

    He will be 30 then

  • GoSteelerz

    Don’t know if I’ve seen anyone play the pocket better than he does.

  • Matt Manzo

    It’s so hard to tell with college QBs! But Sutton definitely plays the pocket well! His hand is always on the ball!

  • Larry Iuluis

    Love your sarcasm.

  • Gautama Om

    Isn’t that Desmond King you’re talking about?

  • jsteeler

    On most plays He is playing the same position Arte Burns is playing.

  • Gautama Om

    His recipe for success is staying close and using his patience and excellent timing to break the pass.

    I strongly think Sutton was deserving of a late 2nd early 3rd round pick and we got great value based on his ascendancy up to his injury last season. Why? because if not for that injury he would have continued the trajectory and played much better his senior season and we wouldn’t have a chance late in the 3rd round.

  • Jeff McNeill

    I don’t know about King, but I saw a draft guru saying he was more highly regarded before his injury last year. I forget who it was though. That was just one persons opinion.

  • Jeff McNeill

    It’s not like he is 5’9″ but I guess he does have short arms. Time will tell what he can and cannot do. I am not sure there is anyone who can handle Gronk if he is healthy.

  • Consistent

    Thanx for the compilation Dave,great work!

    I like what I see…man to man coverage,seems to fight well,played press,a lot of the passes defended when the QB had little pressure and made the throw he wanted yet and still he played everything pretty well.

  • Consistent

    Sutton broke his ankle early on this past season,Colbert mentioned how he rehabbed and returned for the bowl game when many players would had just prepared to go pro

  • SilverSteel

    Weekends just aren’t the same without football

  • Ike Evans

    I completely understand…..i think he may wind up playin slot because of it

  • Doug McFee

    Play maker with a nose for the ball. I like the pick!

  • Michael Mosgrove

    so did i. back to november.

  • Michael Mosgrove

    burns wasnt very good last year.
    just a few of his stats for 2016

    most penalties by a db
    most td surrendered by a db
    most yards given up by a db
    #90 in total tackles by db
    #73 in solo tackles by a db
    #168 in assisted tackles

  • KiJana Haney

    With sutton commanding the slot all we need is a big long corner on the outside. I hope allen becomes something. Dave can you do one for allen next

  • Luke

    Well he’s 23 now so I think you should work on your counting skills

  • HeavyMedicine

    I know these are primarily highlights, but based on body placement and recovery/reaction times this kid has all the skills to succeed. He seems to have ALL the fundamentals covered. That’s something we have been missing since Ike’s heydays. Cockrell is similar in fashion, but this kid looks faster and way more athletic. We could have gotten a steal in the 3rd round. I’m excited.

  • HeavyMedicine

    Yea I’d like to see more of Allen. Prob is I know he is raw and converted over from WR. Don’t think he has much time playing the position. However, go back and listen to the Podcast when they had Dave T on. He raves about Allen for about 5 minutes straight. Call’s him sleeper pick of the year. When we called his name on draft day, all I could think about was Dave T talking this guy up. I’m excited to see a big 6’3 towering over 6’1 WR on the outside.

  • KiJana Haney

    I listened to that podcast twice and then found what ever highlights I could from this year.
    I’m a big fan of the potential

  • WreckIess

    Josh Norman was the most penalized DB, He gave up the most TDs on any rookie, but not all DBs, and I have no idea where you got the yards allowed stat from. Gonna need you to cite your sources.

  • I.P. Freeley

    It seems that in many of these plays, he’s out of position and the balls are just dropped.

  • Donte Williams

    im with you once i heard that podcast i was dying for the profile from SD and what would you know they posted that jont right before the draft and made me very happy i like his ceiling and upside 6’3 cant wait to hear about hi at OTAs camp and watch him preseason

  • steeltown

    yea in a weaker DB class and without injury, he would easily be a 2nd Rd pick
