MT Senior Receives Impressive Pre-Season Accolade


Middle Tennessee senior Jeremy Cutrer is among the 400 players named to the 2016-17 Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List, which was released on Tuesday.

“The release of our watch list signifies the opening kickoff for the Reese’s Senior Bowl,” said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage. “We are looking forward to evaluating these prospects over the next several months in trying to find the best 110 players in America.”

Cutrer, a native of New Orleans and a member of the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award Watch List, was voted second-team All-Conference USA in 2015. He played in 10 games and earned nine starts while finishing the season with 31 tackles. He finished with three interceptions and a team-high 13 pass break-ups.

The heralded special team’s standout also had two blocked kicks which ranked seventh nationally. He was 20th nationally in passes defended with 1.3 per game.

This year’s group includes 209 defensive players and 191 offensive players. Specialists were not included in this year’s watch list and will form their own list later this season.

By position, safeties (49), wide receivers (49) and cornerbacks (44) lead the way.

The 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl week officially begins on Tuesday, Jan. 24, and concludes with the 68th game on Jan. 28 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. The practices will be televised live on ESPN and the game will feature a live broadcast on NFL Network at 2:30 p.m. ET.
