Jeff Fuller NFL Draft Profile

Jeff Fuller, Senior, Wide Receiver, Texas A&M



Jeff Fuller will leave Texas A&M as the most productive wide receiver in school history. Even after his junior season, Fuller held just about every record possible. Fuller started setting records as a true freshman. He quickly emerged as the team’s big play receiver and had nine receptions that resulted in plays of 20 yards or more. In total he caught 50 passes for 630 yards and an Aggie record nine touchdowns. The numbers suffered a little in 2009 as Fuller struggled with injuries, but in the nine games he played, he caught 41 passes for 568 yards and seven touchdowns.

Despite quarterback issues, 2010 was Fuller’s national breakout year. His 72 receptions for 1,066 yards and 12 touchdowns broke or tied every single season receiving record at Texas A&M. Heading into his senior season Fuller already owns Texas A&M’s career receiving touchdown record and is second in both receptions and yards.


Final Projection:

Fuller is not just a productive collegiate wide receiver. He is certainly not a product of the system either. At 6-4 and 215 pounds, Fuller is an ideal number one receiver in the NFL. He flirted with the idea of heading to the NFL after his junior season, but was not projected as a first or second round selection. Fuller is great at creating separation, but if he starts running better routes, it is hard to see Fuller not being a first round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft.

1/5/12 Update:

It is getting easier to not see Fuller as a first round selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. Being a wide receiver in the Big 12 is a tough way to make a living. Fuller got overshadowed by teammate Ryan Swope and the Aggies had a disappointing season and pretty much stayed out of the natinoal radar the entire season. The fact that Fuller pretty much turned into a possession receiver while Swope was making all of the big plays is not a good sign. However, Fuller is still a big, strong receiver and should test out well at the NFL Combine. If he does, he should grade out as a second round talent. The problem is there are a lot of wide receivers out there this year and the difference between the second round and the fourth round could be one bad 40-yard dash.
