Colorado State fullback Zac Pauga might not get drafted because there aren’t many at his position that do, but NFL teams are certainly taking notice of him.
Pauga made an official pre-draft visit to the Arizona Cardinals and had a workout for the Denver Broncos. The Houston Texans have also expressed interest in him.
Pauga is a durable performer who played in 49 consecutive games for the Rams in his college career. The 6-1, 246-pounder is considered a strong receiver out of the backfield.
It’s difficult for fullbacks to get drafted. The tricky position undrafted free agents will be in this year is because of the lockout they will not be permitted to sign with teams immediately following the draft as they typically are.
