MOBILE, Ala. -- Arizona State defensive lineman Will Sutton hasn't wasted any time introducing himself to NFL clubs in his first two days at the Senior Bowl.

The Sun Devils star couldn't even recall every team that interviewed him since his arrival at the Senior Bowl, but he couldn't have felt better about the way he presented himself.

"I talked to the Saints, Cowboys, Tampa Bay, Ravens, Oakland, Houston, Green Bay, a bunch of teams," said Sutton (6-1, 305 pounds). "No regrets. You've got to go in there with confidence and just be honest, 100 percent honest. Because it's a business. They don't want a guy to lie to them."

Sutton made 13.5 tackles for loss for Arizona State this year, with four sacks among 48 tackles, and even came up with an interception. So which of his attributes made that success possible?

"Get-off, and hands," Sutton said.

Check out those attributes in this video clip of Sutton battling Vanderbilt left tackle Wesley Johnson in one-on-one drills at practice Monday.

While you're at it, also check out his weight. Sutton, who recorded 23.5 tackles for loss (including 13.5 sacks) as a 267-pound junior, played his senior season at around 330 pounds, which had a negative affect on his overall play. He weighed in at 315 pounds on Monday.

It was difficult not to notice at practice.

Sutton said Florida offensive guard Jon Halapio was his toughest matchup in one-on-one drills Monday. And it's a matchup he's been anticipating.

"I've been watching him since he's been there, and I've always had an interest in how he plays," Sutton said. "Going up against him, he's got great technique, and he's a physical guy. It's going to be fun these next few days."
