The Houston Texans select Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller.

The Houston Texans have selected Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller with the 21st overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Texans added a much needed piece to for their offense and coveted the speed of Fuller. The team continue to focus on building their team through the draft. 

At Notre Dame, Fuller appeared in 13 games and had 62 receptions for 1,258 yards and 14 touchowns. Averaging 96.8 yards a game in 2015, Fuller is considered a top end prospect that can stretch the field. 

Fuller was offered a scholarship by coach Bill O’Brien coming out of high school to Penn State but opted for Notre Dame instead.  At the NFL Combine Fuller put on a show and ran a 4.32 second forty-yard dash, had a 33.5 inch vertical jump and broad jumped 10 1.2 feet. 

The Texans were after speed from the start of the draft process and have found a legit threat to add more speed to an offense that had some upgrades with the addition of Lamar Miller.
