Cleveland Browns Draft Profile: Will Fuller
As mentioned earlier, Fuller is very active as a blocker when he isn’t immediately involved in a play, or once the play has set up. Coming from a Notre Dame team that had one of the best running backs in the country in C.J. Prosise, and put such an emphasis on the run game, Fuller was consistently able to either seal off the corner opening the outside, or push the corner to the sideline to create a bigger hole.
Coming to a team like Cleveland that has two reliable running backs in Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson, this skill will be invaluable.
Ability to Extend a Play
While Cleveland will likely take whoever they see as the best quarterback in the draft, their line was decimated in free agency with the loss of Alex Mack and Mitchell Schwartz. This could lead whoever is behind center leaving the pocket more than they would like to. Not a problem for Fuller.

With the Irish, he played with three very mobile quarterbacks in Everett Golson, Malik Zaire, and DeShone Kizer. Whenever they would leave the pocket, Fuller was able to either break from his route, or extend his route to put himself in better position to help his quarterback and make a catch.
If he ended up reeling the ball in, his speed and agility would allow him to slice through defenses in the middle of the field, or make his way up the sideline for a big gain.
If Hue Jackson sees the receiver position as a top need to fix heading into this season, Fuller makes too much sense to take at 32.
