South Carolina had some down time in December before it played Michigan in the Outback Bowl, and defensive end Chaz Sutton used some of it to ponder what he saw on his game film during the season. Considering Sutton was a backup defensive end, he had a fairly productive year — the best of his career, at least statistically. He finished with seven tackles for loss, including five sacks, and two forced fumbles. Sutton’s primary role came in USC’s rabbits package, which uses four defensive ends at once in pass rushing situations, usually on third downs.
