Notre Dame WR Will Fuller impressing at the Combine

Former Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller was viewed as a potential first-round draft pick heading into the Combine, and he’s done nothing to change that perception.

Fuller ran a 4.32-second 40-yard dash, making him the fastest member of the first group of receivers. Fuller said heading into the Combine that he thought he’d run in the 4.35-second range, so he was actually a bit faster than his already impressive target time.

Last year, Notre Dame chose Fuller as its team MVP after he caught 62 passes for 1,258 yards and 14 touchdowns as a junior. He also had a 1,000-yard sophomore season in 2014.

Fuller does have some question marks, including his hands (although he looked good catching passes in on-field drills) and his size (he measured at 6-foot-0, 186 pounds). But there are no questions about his speed.

    The scouts that take the combine too seriously will be back there soon, but they’ll likely be working for a TV network.

    Really fast, but may not be able to catch the ball. Sounds like a great pick for pundits but not for a GM who wants to keep his job.

    Is he any relation to the Fuller family of football players that attend(ed) Virginia Tech?

    Sounds like someone the Packers would want if he falls. He has speed, unlike every other receiver sans Nelson, who isn’t getting any younger.

    He caught the ball just fine at ND being that he was team mvp an all. Not to mention whenever I caught a ND game (they’re freaking on TV every week) they were throwing it to him deep and he was smoking people. He’ll be around 200 pounds once he naturally fills out, there is nothing wrong with his size. Their running back just ran a pair of 4.4’s and Jaylon smith could’ve been number one pick had he not got hurt. Brian Kelly may be a flaming DOOOSH, but he’s bringing in some serious athletes
