Analysis

DEPTH CHART FEATURE - What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said before WILL FULLER made the Houston Texans' depth chart: Notre Dame, 6001 186 4.36. Junior entry. Two-year starter from Philadelphia, PA. Second team All-America. Fourth receiver in Irish history to have consecutive 1000-yard seasons. In 2014 was the Irish Offensive Player of the Year. Explosive downfield speed. A definite vertical threat. A multiple alignment receiver who has an equal split right (49%) and left (43.4%). He lines up in the slot about 7% of the time to test matchups. One of the knocks on Fuller is his inconsistent hands. This metric proves it; he was targeted 22.9% of the time on 192 routes and dropped the ball 9.1% of the time. The norm is 5.9%. Adjusts well to the ball in flight. Has the ability to come out of the break with burst and acceleration. Creates space. Has the ability to get open. Top level body control and balance while running at full speed. Has a quick upfield burst on tunnel screens. Cradles and body catches a lot of balls. Appears to lack confidence in his hands. Has a slender frame and a lean muscled build. Will not break many tackles. More slippery than strong. Needs to see and track the ball into his hands better. Not a natural catcher. Needs to get more core strength to block downfield. Gives effort but lacks strength to sustain his blocks. Needs work on intermediate, over the middle, and short routes. Several of his drops were in the middle where the safety is staring him down. He had five receptions of over 72 yards last season. 2015 stats: 62-1258, 20.2 ypr, 14 TD. OSR:9/42. First/ second round. (A-30 3/4, H-8 1/4, VJ-33.5, SS-4.27).
