Aaron Fuller is a quick, crisp route-runner who projects as a solid possession receiver in the NFL. He’s shown the ability to create separation with great agility and excellent ball skills to finish plays. With his speed, he can turn on the afterburners and beat aggressive corners who jump on routes, and he could potentially return kicks in the NFL.

The Washington product’s average size and frame could make him susceptible to being smothered by large, physical corners. Fuller’s length and catch radius isn’t anything to write home about, and he isn’t the most physical receiver. Additionally, he’s shown inconsistency with his hands as far as drops are concerned, though there’s no doubt he can win on tough catches.
Why he may fit with Washington:
Washington needs more talent at its skill positions, and Fuller is worth a look toward the end of the draft. Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins needs more reliable players to throw, other than rookie standout Terry McLaurin and occasionally young players like Steven Sims and Kelvin Harmon. If the Husky is available in the later rounds, he easily has the upside to be a No. 2 or No. 3 option with the Redskins next year.
Aaron Fuller may lack physicality and impressive size, but he has the quickness and route-running ability to be an NFL starter, which is what Washington needs more of at the wide receiver position.
Projected Round: 6th
