Overview

 

Fuller came to UCLA as a four-star quarterback recruit, but had the misfortune of arriving just as 2015 fifth-round pick Brett Hundley was starting to become a star for the Bruins. Luckily for him and the team, he was also a four-star athlete willing to move positions during his freshman season. He played nine games in 2012, starting two in spite of his inexperience as a receiver, catching 20 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns. With a year under his belt, Fuller earned honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors in 2013 (43-471, four TD) and was second on the team with 59 receptions (447 yards, one TD) in 2014. Although Fuller started only seven games as a senior, missing games with head and ankle injuries, he returned kicks (24.2 yard average) and punts (12 for 141 yards) in addition to making plays on offense (24-259, three TD).

Analysis

 

Strengths: Has good size for a slot receiver. Ran a very fast 40 at his pro day. Quick feet off the line of scrimmage. Uses stutter-step with twitchy burst to get past press coverage and over the top of cornerbacks. Makes adjustments mid-route against zone coverage and settles into friendly spots for his quarterback. Steady kick returner who could compete for that spot as a rookie.

 

Weaknesses: Needs to improve play strength. Doesn't show great commitment when asked to work towards the noise in the middle of the field. Body catcher. Needs to consistently play to his timed speed. Drifts out of breaks rather than using his acceleration to create greater separation. Less than 45 percent of his career receptions went for a first down. Lacks run-after-catch traits.

 

Bottom Line: When a player with Fuller's speed finishes his career with less than 5 percent of his catches going for 20-plus yards, you have to wonder. Fuller blew up the stopwatches at his pro day, but he doesn't play to that speed on tape. His hands are good enough and he clearly has the speed and quickness to separate, but he lacks a consistently competitive effort. Despite a lack of production, Fuller has a shot at getting drafted on day three and competing for an NFL roster spot.
