Jeff Fuller Was to Meet with Houston Texans
CBS Rapid Reports said that today at the Senior Bowl, Senior Texas A&M Aggies wide receiver Jeff Fuller was scheduled to meet with Houston Texans General Manager Rick Smith. That interview was cancelled by Smith so he could fly to Hawaii so he could join the Texans coaching staff at the Pro-Bowl for the weekend. This was an interesting tidbit considering the struggles Fuller has had at the Senior Bowl and during his Senior year at College Station.
Fuller is 6’4″ 217 lbs. and a big athletic wide receiver, but he has not impressed at the Senior Bowl this week. Fuller has had a handful of drops during these practices and has been a disappointment for scouts. Fuller has all of the gifts to be a NFL talent and his junior year he had 72 receptions for 1,066 yards and 12 touchdowns. During his senior year he posted 70 receptions for 828 yards and 6 touchdowns, he has posted some impressive numbers in a two-year span for the Aggies. Fuller has shown he can be productive, but questions are still needed to be answered with his recent struggles.
It is apparent the Texans need is at the receiver position heading into the 2012 NFL Draft and it was interesting to hear that Fuller had an interview set up with Smith. Head Coach Gary Kubiak is an Aggies alum and with Fuller’s ex coach Mike Sherman, who was also Kubiak’s offensive coordinator and assistant head coach during the 2006 and 2007 seasons, it could be expected that Kubiak is talking to Sherman about Fuller. There is a connection so there must be something to said about this potential interview.
