Devin Hester - WR - Falcons

Falcons KR/WR Devin Hester (toe) has not been cleared to run.

Hester was limited to five games last season because of two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe. He had surgery to repair the issue in January. Hester should be ready for training camp, but his spot on the roster is anything but secure, especially with the new kickoff rules hurting the value of return men.

It couldn't hurt to give him a chance in TC, but something tells me he's about done.

Hester's problem is that he doesn't really give you much as a receiver and with that bad toe and is age, who knows if he will be the same returner as he once was. It doesn't him help that Fuller is a very good returner at a fraction of the cost.

 

And This is why I have repeatedly stated Hester should be released. (Not Re Least) lol

Hester should be kept till we can find someone better.

Fuller could be that someone... He's 2" taller and 10 LBs heaver than Heaster for starters....

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).

Pro Day Results
40-yard dash: 4.39 seconds
Vertical: 36 inches
Broad jump: 10 feet, 4 inches
Short shuttle: 4.25 seconds
3-cone: 7.1 seconds
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.
Draft Projection Round 7 or priority free agent
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.
