Vincent Fuller - S

 Vincent Fuller Grade: 3.48
 Position: S
 Class: Sr
 School: Virginia Tech
 Conference: ACC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-1, 189
 40 Time: 4.45
  Selected by: Tennessee Titans
  Round 4, pick 7 (108 overall)

BIO: Became a full-time starter at safety as a senior, posting 51/3/4 after junior totals of 56/1/7 in three starts. Used as a first-team cornerback in 2002.

POSITIVES: Outstanding athlete with top size/speed numbers. Can flip his hips in transition, displays an adequate backpedal as well as a burst of closing speed. Explosive, flashes on the scene and wraps up tackling. Tough and not afraid to throw his body around the action.

NEGATIVES: Lacks instincts in coverage, not decisive and late arriving on the scene. Does not take the best angles to the action.

ANALYSIS: A versatile defensive back who can be used at several positions, Fuller possesses mouthwatering measurables, but only occasionally plays to them on the field. While his physical skills stand out, his instincts and awareness are far behind. Solid pick early in Day 2 who will need time to develop.

PROJECTION: Late Fourth Round
