Round One, Pick 29:
Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
Having LSU’s Kristian Fulton fall into Jon Robinson’s lap on draft night almost feels like a dream scenario, but one that feels more than likely at this point.
Graded as a late first-round, early second-round prospect, Fulton will enter the draft after two years of starting experience with the Tigers that proves he’s more than ready for the next level. Not only does he have ideal size and speed as a 6-foot corner with a 4.46 40-yard dash, but Fulton backed up his measurables in college with some spectacular coverage skills.
Fulton ended his two-year run as an LSU starter by totaling 24 recorded pass breakups in 25 games played, helping him on route to ending that two-year run allowing just a 40% completion percentage when targeted, but college quarterbacks leaned towards not throwing to him often.
Fulton has the size and skill to play cornerback at a high level in the NFL, and he could do so from Day One with the Tennessee Titans. Logan Ryan, one of the Titans starting cornerbacks from last season, is still kicking around on the free-agent market with no recent news of Tennessee looking to bring him back. Fulton could fill that vacancy left by Ryan, with a chance to become an even better player.
