2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU Tigers

Career Snapshot
Two-year starter who made 38 tackles with one interception and 14 pass breakups as a junior in 2019. Made 25 tackles with one INT and nine PBUs as a sophomore. Suspended for two years early in 2017 after he attempted to use somebody else’s urine to pass a drug test. Had the second year of his suspension overturned in August 2018.

Positives
Talented, athletic cornerback who flashes bigtime ability. Quick-footed in reverse, flips his hips in transition and runs step for step with receivers downfield. Gets his head back around, tracks the pass in the air and shows an explosive burst of closing speed.

Aggressive, mixes it up with opponents throughout the route and fires to the action out of his plant. Displays good awareness in zone coverage and gives effort against the run.

Negatives
Late to transition with opponents off the line, which puts him a half-step behind receivers. Struggles against bigger receivers. Character issues have raised red flags among several teams. Showed a lot of inconsistency last season.

Analysis
Fulton grades as a first-round pick at the top of this game, but he’s been inconsistent and has had lapses on the field. He possesses the size and physical skills to start at the next level, but he must consistently play at a high level, keep his focus on the field and do the right things off the field.
