5 Cornerbacks who provide second-round value for Philadelphia Eagles
Here’s a guy that’s very tricky and hard to evaluate. From a talent standpoint, there isn’t much to complain about with Kristian Fulton. Sure, he can be late in his decision making. Sure, once he gets beaten it’s pretty much game over, and at times, he struggled against better competition. Just take his game versus the Texas Longhorns for instance.
He gave up a touchdown in that one and was flagged for pass interference, and he looked bad in both instances, but he’s also young and that’s why the Eagles employ Marquand Manuel. Any decent secondary coach should be able to help develop Fulton into being a starter in the NFL.
Now, here’s where the arguments come in. He’s getting and will continue to get first-round grades, but there’s also this thing about character concerns. He was suspended from playing during the 2017 season by the NCAA after news broke that he used a teammate’s urine to help him pass a drug test, but in many ways, Fulton makes one think about Jalen Mills.
Both have had their speed questioned. Both played at the same school, and like Mills, Fulton could provide value for the Eagles if the questions surrounding him cause him to wind up being drafted later than many anticipate.
