Daylon McCutcheon (born December 9, 1976 in Los Angeles) is a retired National Football League cornerback who played his entire career with the Cleveland Browns

High school careerEdit

McCutcheon played high school football at Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente, California under the direction of then Head Coach, Mark Paredes. As a senior, he rushed for 2,456 yards in 1994; however he chose to play cornerback in college because his pro prospects were considered better at that position.[1]

College careerEdit

McCutcheon played college football at the University of Southern California. Although he played primarily on defense, the Trojans occasionally used him as a receiver due to his overall talent.[2] Following his senior year, he was named All-America second-team by The Sporting News and All-Pac-10 first-team. He was also a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award.

Professional careerEdit

McCutcheon played in 103 games with 96 starts and accumulated 463 tackles, 7 sacks, 12 interceptions, 63 pass breakups and 8 forced fumbles [3] for the Browns before being released on March 9, 2007.

Coaching careerEdit

Beginning in 2007, McCutcheon began coaching at his former high school. [1]


Daylon's father, Lawrence McCutcheon, was an all-pro running back who set the since-broken Los Angeles Rams career rushing record (6,186 yards) and played in Super Bowl XIV.
