Tennessee Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton

After reaching the pinnacle of NCAA excellence and after earning a Second Team All-SEC nod, Kristian Fulton won the College Football Playoff National Championship Game as a member of what has to be considered as one of the best teams in the game’s history. That’s where the Tennessee Titans took notice and made him the 61st-overall selection, during Round 2 of the 2020 selection meeting.

Let’s just say things didn’t go as planned in year one as the rook missed all but six games. Think of this as hitting the reset button some. We’re going to restate a few things that you may have forgotten while Fulton learned what out of sight and out of mind meant.

This was one of the better prospects entering the 2020 NFL Draft at his position. He’s six-foot-tall and tips the scales at 197 pounds. In 24 games at the collegiate level, this young man stacked 56 total tackles including two for a loss of yardage while breaking up 20 passes, forcing a fumble, and picking off two passes.

Ladies and gentlemen and Tennessee Titans fans of all ages, we welcome you officially to Kristian Fulton’s era. It just comes one year later than originally expected. Don’t worry. He’ll prove to be worth the wait.
