The run is real, folks. You know as well as I do that there always comes a point in the draft, usually more than once, where there is a run on a certain position. Well, you’ve reached the first one of the 2016 draft. Will Fuller makes the fourth consecutive receiver off the board as he heads to Cincinnati to help out A.J. Green. With Brandon LaFell penciled in as the number two starter, receiver is one of the few holes on this Bengals team.
Fuller needs a bit of coaching up. He tends to develop stone hands throughout stretches of games here and there, but doesn’t have any glaring needs that aren’t coachable or fixable. Fuller helps Andy Dalton tremendously because, and say what you want, LaFell and Brandon Tate were not replicating the success of Muhammad Sanu or Marvin Jones, who both left in free agency. The Bengals get a good one here and hopefully are on their way to breaking a playoff losing drought old enough to legally drink.
