Tennessee Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton, second season

Here’s a controversial statement, and you can take it or leave it. Kristian Fulton is every bit as talented as Caleb Farley is. Now, Fulton didn’t grade out as one of the top three cornerbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft class, but he did grade out as a first-rounder for some scouts when he entered the league out of the LSU Tigers program a year ago.

As you know, Fulton’s rookie season was short-circuited by injury. He missed all but six games in year one, but it appears that he’s back to full strength. He, along with the aforementioned Farley and Jackrabbit Jenkins, should be a major part of improving a Titans secondary that got the ball thrown all over the field on them during the 2020-2021 season.

Fulton was all over the field when he was available. He tallied 16 total tackles, a sack, a pass breakup, and an interception in his first season while playing 2020 defensive snaps, which was roughly 18 percent of the team’s total. Extrapolate that over 16 games, and we are certain to look at an explosive season by the second-year man in what equates to his sophomore NFL season.
