Strengths

Former cornerback, possesses above average cover skills for the safety position.
Dangerous as punt returner or once ball gets in hands after interception.
Good instincts, can cover most slot receivers.

Weaknesses

Not a huge stopper in run defense.
Played behind elite defense at Alabama, could be an issue at the pro level without top talent in front of him.
Had multiple major injuries in college, which could affect durability in the NFL.

If healthy it's a great pick. But the injuries are a concern.

He fractured his leg. Let's hope it was just a freak play. I'd probably keep him off of punt return duties to decrease injury risk.

Looks like he can tackle and cover.

3 pretty good backups if Hall picks up the position with this guy and Bush. Have a feeling Fuller is just gonna get cut.

Yeah, Fuller either switches to safety or gets cut.
