Tennessee Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton

Any time a team takes a prospect in the second round of any NFL Draft, they’re doing so because they expect those guys to contribute, be a cornerstone for the team’s future, and oftentimes, produce some immediate results.

Right out the gate, anyone paying attention knew that Kristian Fulton, the 61st-overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, had the goods to be something special. He appeared in six games, making two starts. 16 tackles (14 were of the solo variety), a sack, and an interception were the results of 202 defensive snaps. Unfortunately, he also sat on the Titans’ injured reserve from Halloween to December 15th.

Four games into the current campaign, Kristian Fulton is enjoying a nice comeback tour and has actually become what Tennessee hoped they would get when they spent the 22nd-overall pick of the most recent NFL Draft on Caleb Farley.

Fulton is an excellent tackler, an exceptional cover guy, and someone the Titans defense can hang its hat on, someone that defensive coordinator Shane Bowen can rely on week in and week out. Keep an eye on him as we move through the season. If Farley can ever get healthy and get on the field, he and Fulton will give Tennessee an above-average duo at the cornerback position for quite some time.
