Another rookie defensive back
When the LA Rams drafted safety Jordan Fuller with the 199th pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, some believed the selection was a benign choice. Fuller, some reasoned, fell because he was sheltered on a solid Ohio State Buckeyes’ defense by great cornerbacks.
In fact, he was a team captain due to his maturity and work ethic. He has a solid background at both safety and cornerback. At 6-foot-2 and 203 pounds, he has a solid build to be a contributor to the Rams defense. And it showed in training camp.

Fuller gets a vote of confidence
Is Jordan Fuller on track for significant snaps this year? The fact that he started alongside starting safety John Johnson III is a very good sign that the coaches really like what they are seeing out of him so far.
We are not expecting him to leap past starting safety Taylor Rapp, although the strong rookie performance does a lot to help the Rams plans for 2021. With the Rams looking at a number of significant contributors projected to test free agency, Fuller gives the team the peace of mind that the safety position will be in good hands next year.
