NFP: Aggies WR Jeff Fuller Draft Stock Falling Due To Performance In Senior Bowl Practices

The 2012 Senior Bowl is just a day away but players from major universities all across the nation have been practicing in front of NFL coaches and scouts for the past week in Mobile, Alabama. The senior bowl is a great chance for college players to showcase their abilities to scouts and improve their draft stock. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work that way though. Sometimes, a player's draft stock falls and the Senior Bowl becomes something that hurts a player more than it helps.

That could be the case for Texas A&M's wide receiver Jeff Fuller, who, according to the National Football Post's Wes Bunting, hurt his draft stock over the last week of practice.

For a bigger receiver who doesn’t run well, Fuller needs to do a better job catching the football. At his size and with his body control he’s always open five feet above his head, but poor hands dogged him all week.

The 6-foot-4, 217-pound wide receiver is listed as ESPN's 17th best receiver in this year's draft class but that could change if scouts and coaches have the same thoughts that Bunting does about his Senior Bowl performance.
