Pros

Homerun-type playmaking ability

Can vertically stretch the defense

Has proven he can track down the long ball and adjust in the air

Can make an impact lining up both outside and in the slot

Leaves Notre Dame as one of its all-time leading receivers

Can separate himself from defenders at any point in a route

Opposing defenders give him plenty of cushion in fear of getting burnt, allowing him to make easy receptions underneath

Cons

Too many dropped balls

Lean frame that allows him to get knocked off his route easily by more physical defenders

Won’t be able to get tough yards after the catch

Good, not great blocker

Needs to clean-up his route running

The Vikings Slant

Vikings fit? Maybe.

He wouldn’t be my top pick when it comes to first round receivers, but if there is a run on wide receivers before the Vikings select at 23, Fuller might be their only option to get a potential first round talent. Like Stefon Diggs, Fuller is looked at as a deep threat receiver who can take the top off a defense. Though his drops and small frame will scare some teams away, he has the intangibles to put up some big numbers early in his career. For Minnesota to pull the trigger on Fuller they will need to be comfortable with some of the bigger possession receivers already on the roster as he will not fill that role. While it would be a slight surprise for the Vikings to take another speedster, especially in the first round, it all comes down to how desperate Minnesota really is to fill the need at wide receiver early in the NFL Draft.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Draft Season Logo[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

  1. Agreed, I wonder what percentage of TDs come from plays OUTSIDE the twenty? We’re not a good red zone team. We need a, Jump ball catching, ain’t gonna get pushed off his mark, receiver that makes plays when there isn’t one. Fuller at 186 svelte pounds is not our guy.

  2. I don’t care what anyone at VT says, Will Fuller = Troy Williamson. A fast guy who can’t catch is not what we need on the Vikings. I would rather get the German kid from the Shwalbach (sp?) Unicorns than Will Fuller.
