BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted 21/2/2 as a senior after 20/8/.5 the previous year.
POSITIVES: Explosive penetrating defensive tackle who plays with tremendous quickness. Displays a great first step off the snap, quickly changes direction, and moves well about the field. Keeps his feet driving on contact, wedges between the small creases of the line, and makes plays up the field or out on the flanks. Immediately alters his angle of attack and redirects to the action.
NEGATIVES: Struggles against big opponents and easily pushed off the line. Slow locating the ball and not instinctive. Does not consistently play hard.
ANALYSIS: Fluellen has shown the ability to be a disruptive force the past three years. He offers potential in a one-gap system, yet he will only have a long career at the next level if he learns to play hard for 60 minutes.
