I'm not an LSU Fan (did root for them in the National Champ game though), but Fulton would be an excellent pick at 24.

He's a great fit for Dennis Allen's aggressive Press Man Scheme, he's a fluid, technically sound Man Corner. Who is extremely comfortable with his press technique, and is very patient with his jams and letting the receiver show his hand first in his route stem.

Great turn and run technique, and willing to come down and tackle in the run game. The only concerns he has are maybe a lack of elite timed speed. So if he runs well.. he will probably be gone by pick 24.

Some people say his play dropped off at times this year but I'm fully convinced he was playing through an injury late in the season. I'm more tempted to say we can go Corner, OL, or DL early and still get an excellent WR in this Draft in the 3rd or 4th round.

Agreed 100%. The only concern I feel is his recovery speed. WRs (at the NFL level), could end up abusing him. They are way more technologically sound than college WRs. It was easier for him jamming guys at the line at LSU

I like Fulton, but my main aim is someone much, much quicker at corner.
Jeff Gladney would fit the bill there, he has some of the best Foot quickness in this Draft at Corner outside of Okudah. He's good in Man and Zone, and can play Outside corner or Inside. (I'm reminded of Jaire Alexander a bit watching him)

I’d be happy with him at 24. His speed might not be elite but he’s a technician and would be a great duo to pair with lattimore guarding the other teams number 2 or slower WR. Would solidify our corners for a long time, especially if we restructure Jenkins or keep CGJ at slot corner

cj Henderson would be a great pick too

Uh man I hope not. I will be bummed if we don't come home with one of the young gun QB's.

I've seen him in the top 20 quite a bit. I'd be happy with him at our pick. I don't think he's a playmaker but is a sticky coverage guy. If he covers a guy the QB trusts he might not make the play. But for most WRs his coverage will discourage the throw. He's also a man coverage corner. I think he'd be a great #2 corner for us. A dependable #2 would be well worth the #24 pick imo.

Played well in college and got talked up by every announcer, but I always felt he lacked confidence. He will be a good player, but I don't think he has the makeup to be great/elite. Hope he proves me wrong.
