2016 NFL Draft: Devin Fuller becomes team's newest wide receiver in 7th round

New, comments

Atlanta's last pick of 2016!

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Another draft in the books, assuming the Atlanta Falcons don't plan on trading into the very back of the draft. The team hit on a lot of needs, and got a surprising number of expected starters. They also got Devin Fuller.

Fuller is fast, and while he may chip in as a receiver, he'll primarily make his mark on special teams for Atlanta. He was a productive returner in college, and the Falcons may be parting ways with Devin Hester later this summer, so it would be fair to expect him to step in that role. Not a bad pick, and we'll see how he pans out.

Your thoughts on Fuller?
