Atlanta Falcons: Six receivers that could replace Roddy White
Will Fuller is an interesting prospect to say the least. He ran the quickest 40-yard dash time at 4.32 seconds, can jump out of a gym and make some spectacular catches, but he is as skinny as a rail and will flat-out drop the ball at times. Fuller only hit 10 reps on the bench press at the combine compared to Thomas’ 18 reps but if you’re looking for a receiver with a rare combination of size and speed, Fuller is your guy.
What also makes Fuller such an intriguing prospect is the fact that he grew up an Atlanta Falcons’ fan. He stated at the combine that he would like to play for the Falcons if given the opportunity to and would love to catch passes from Matt Ryan. At 6-0, 186 pounds, he needs to put on some weight if he want’s to have a long career, but weight is something that can easily be put on and the potential of this guy is as high as it gets.
It’s pretty doubtful that Fuller will get drafted in the first round so if the Falcons want to get their hands on him in the second, they could if they wanted to. Will they trade up to get a guy like Fuller? If they sign Travis Benjamin they won’t, but if they don’t, it’s a possibility.
