Ohio State safety Fuller

With the retirement of veteran safety Eric Weddle, the LA Rams are suddenly looking for safety help on the team. The Rams find it with Ohio State Buckeyes safety Jordan Fuller.

Fuller is a 6-foot-2 205-pound defensive back who has been a fixture on the Ohio State defense for nearly the entire four seasons he has been with the team. He has a wide radius of coverage and sufficient techniques to make quarterbacks pay for ill-timed or errant throws.  He can cover the football field sideline to sideline.

He offers all the weapons in a defensive backs arsenal: deep center field coverage, man-to-man, zone, slot, and blitzing. He is at his best coverage when he pulls up to cover the slot receiver.  With taller than average height for the slot, Fuller will be very competitive for playing time in that role with the LA Rams. He can defend the pass and has successfully done so for three seasons with the Buckeyes.

His downside is the need to improve his tackling ability.  His angles are off, and he often overshoots the ball carrier in pursuit. He will need plenty of work in training camp, even before he is given a chance on Special Teams. He has been invited to the 2020 NFL Scouting Camp as a defensive back and will arrive with Group Four on Wednesday, February 26th.
