Breaking down WR Will Fuller and RB C.J. Prosise

Will Fuller – WR – Notre Dame Fuller is a third year junior and two year starter for the Irish. He has decided to enter the draft as an underclassman. As a true freshman in 2013 he played as a backup and had 6 receptions for 160 yards and a touchdown. He became a starter in 2014 and finished the season with 76 catches for 1096 yards and 15 touchdowns. This past season he had 62 catches for 1258 yards and 14 touchdowns. Size – 6000 – 182 – 4.38 (all estimates) Strong Points – Has outstanding deep speed. Good route runner who gets in and out of cuts very quickly. Run after the catch skills. Very productive with big play ability. Weak Points – Hands! Has over 20 drops the last two seasons. Has a number of double catches and body catches. Seldom “snatches the ball”. Lacks strength and can be re-routed. Has trouble getting off jam. Small hands. Summation – Fuller has as much if not more big play potential as any player in the draft. He has rare play speed and once he is in the open field he’s gone. That said, he has small hands and seldom snatches the ball. Has a high number of drops and often body catches or double catches passes. He can have some trouble with jams and getting off of press coverage by physical corners. He is a good route runner and can uncover versus zone and man. Could go as high as the second round but has to catch the ball better if he wants to see the field. C.J. Prosise – RB – Notre Dame Prosise is a fourth year junior who is entering the draft as an underclassman. He was recruited as a safety but moved to wide receiver following his redshirt year. In 2013 he played as a backup wide receiver and special teams player finishing the season with 7 receptions for 72 yards. In 2014 he again was a backup wide receiver but got six starts. He finished the season with 29 catches for 516 yards and two touchdowns. This past spring he was moved to running back and became a starter after the first game. He rushed for 1032 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also had 26 receptions for 308 yards and 1 touchdown. Size – 6006 – 222 – 4.48 (Estimates) Strong Points – Great size and speed. Very good hands. Strong runner who consistently gets yards after contact. Has very good open field running ability. Willing blocker. Excellent special teams player. A lot of big play potential Weak Points – Raw as a running back. Can get tall when running inside. Run instincts in tight are just average…decision making has to improve. Pass protection technique. Summation – Has only played running back for one season and has unlimited upside. He has great size but still needs to add some bulk and strength to his upper body. As he gains experience his instincts/vision inside will improve. Biggest concern right now is he runs tall and exposes his body to big hits. He has great play speed and is very good in the open field. Very reliable as a receiver. He is also a very good special teams player. Not ready to be a starter but has down the road starter potential once he gets more experience and comfortable with the position. Follow Greg on Twitter @greggabe
