Player Notes Pros

  • Highly competitive, elite athleticism, attacks the ball when challenged like a true alpha

  • Great in press man coverage, showcases excellent patience & balance crowding routes

  • He makes it very difficult for receivers to work into their stems with proper timing

  • Doesn’t allow much in the way of separation & he truly restricts throwing windows

  • Never seems to panic & always appears comfortable & in control of all situations

  • Overall his footwork is very clean, versatility to play any coverage technique required

  • Ideal mix of agility, flexibility, & body control, rarely false steps, works angles precisely

  • Steady backpedal, great weight distribution & good flexibility when working half turns

  • Ability to play from variety of angles, positioning relative to the receiver is impressive

  • Plays over the top of in break routes, as well as underneath out breaking routes 

  • Recovers from trail, or downfield stacks on deep routes with no panic & great leverage

  • Crowds breaking routes & forces incompletions by disrupting body positioning & timing

  • Never plays himself out of position, always ready to frame initial & secondary releases

  • Contests every single break & rarely ever allows a clean release into space

  • Ability to adjust stride length & step frequency on the fly is incredibly smooth

  • May be the best defensive back in this class at playing with his back to the football

  • Kristian Fulton is a top notch Day 1 outside corner who is scheme transcendent

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Room to be better run defender & needs to do a better job positioning himself to finish

  • Missed entire 2017 season on suspension after tampering with an NCAA drug test

  • Lacks elite length & won't make many contested interceptions in jump ball situations

  • Not enough competitiveness in pursuit, won't get involved in plays that don't need him 

  • Tackling technique is only average and he'll often lunge for ankles in the open field
