Mocking The Draft recently checked in with a profile on Texas A&M wideout Jeff Fuller. The Aggies star wideout has been projected as a first round pick by many draftniks early on in the process, and while MTD's Dan Kadar generally agrees with the consensus, he worries that a lack of big plays will keep Fuller from being more than a possession receiver in the pros.â†µ
Fuller really grabbed the attention of talent evaluators against LSU in the Cotton Bowl last season. Against the Tigers' Patrick Peterson, Fuller had a solid game with seven receptions for 83 yards. Statistically it wasn't his best game, but probably his most important of the year. Fuller worked a lot in that game on comeback routes and showed he can quickly find the ball.â†µ
As good as he was against Peterson, he was bad against Nebraska's more physical corners. That inconsistency is ultimately the greatest knock on Fuller leading into his senior season. To string together an entire great season, Fuller needs to sharpen his routes and work after the catch better.â†µ
Personally, I find it hard to believe that anyone with 12 touchdowns in a college season can be called out for a lack of playmaking ability, but whatever. Fuller will have a full year of Ryan Tannehill this season, and should he improve on last season's numbers, he'll be a sure-fire first rounder.
