Sullivan's success in four years on the field and in the classroom at Georgia State earned him one of the prestigious finalist spots for the William V. Campbell Trophy, otherwise known as the academic Heisman Trophy. The journalism major with a 3.84-grade point average is also the young program's record-holder in interceptions (seven) and pass breakups (18). He was a third-team All-Sun Belt pick in 2017 as a 12-game starter, helping his team achieve the team's first bowl win by posting 46 tackles, intercepting one pass and breaking up five others. Sullivan was an honorable mention all-conference pick as a sophomore (50 tackles, 4.5 for loss, two interceptions, eight pass breakups in 13 starts) and junior (43 stops, three interceptions, four pass breakups in 12 starts). As a true freshman, Sullivan started eight of 12 games played, stopping 43 ballcarriers, intercepting a pass and breaking up another.

Overview
Sullivan has decent size and has been a consistent contributor since his freshman season, but his average instincts and inability to stay in phase prevents him from making more plays on the ball. Sullivan isn't overly fast or physical and may need to play well at the Senior Bowl to help him prove he's an NFL-caliber talent.
Strengths
  • Flashed a disruptive jab from press on a couple of reps against Penn State this season
  • Recognizes route combinations from off-coverage and is able to see and respond to routes developing in his area
  • Shows decent short-area recovery quickness with his feet
  • Shows off quality hand-eye coordination when a play is there to be made
  • Has quick hands to snare interception opportunities that get on top of him
  • Intelligent with ability to take directions from the meeting room out to the field
Weaknesses
  • The longer the runway the more he will fall behind when chasing
  • May not have the long speed to handle NFL burners
  • Tightness in hips offers resistance when asked to open suddenly and sprint
  • Loses valuable ground when changing directions
  • Takes forever to gear down and respond to comeback routes once he gets into sprint mode
  • Runs himself out of potential plays on the ball with excessively deep drops
  • Needs to do a better job of staying in phase through the route
  • Grab-and-drag tackler who goes for rides against big ball carriers
