5. Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
Kristian Fulton sits at 6-foot and 200-pounds. Fulton excels in press-man coverage and has great play recognition. He uses great body leverage to shutdown taller wide receivers.
Fulton has tremendous patience and has the ability to close off any type of throwing windows quickly for opposing quarterbacks.
One of Fulton’s best traits is his is recovery. With super quick footwork he has the ability to rebound from any false steps and drive on the ball immediately.
With many pros as a man coverage corner, he needs to work on just one thing, which seems to be a common thing in this year’s draft for defensive backs. Tackling.
Fulton needs to learn how to use his hands a bit more to shed blocks and be a bit more aggressive in the run game. But at the next level, he will be coached up to do so.
