The case for Corey Fuller

Corey Fuller did a fine job stepping in last season when Calvin Johnson went down with a high ankle sprain. In the game against the New Orleans Saints in 2014, he stepped up and caught 8 passes for 99 yards and the game-winning touchdown. There is no doubt this kid has some talent.

During the offseason, he has worked even harder to clean up his routes and become a better all-around player. For the most part, it has shown in preseason. In the camp practice I attended, his routes were looking very good, crisp and clean. While he does drop the occasional pass, which let’s admit it, even the great Calvin drops passes from time to time, he is still a very solid player.

Because of these factors, I am personally choosing him as the Detroit Lions number 3 receiver.
