Houston Texans Will Fuller Getting Acclimated To His New Team

Houston Texans first round pick, Will Fuller V, is getting settled into his new team and feels no added pressure.

Being the first selection of an NFL team’s draft class will come with expectations and Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller is no exception. Blessed with top end speed and big playmaking ability, Fuller had his first chance to touch the field as a Texans player. “It always feels good to get back on the field, especially at the highest level,” said Fuller. “It definitely felt good to get out here.”

Fuller, like all the rookies, has been away from the game of football since his season ended. While practicing for the NFL combine and pro days, actual competition on the field was on the back burner. With all of the draft preparation behind him, he knows there is work to do for the Texans. 

“I felt like the game was a lot slower in college,” explained Fuller, “Right now, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. The vets have been playing for countless number of years, so I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.”

Fuller does not feel there is added pressure because of his draft status, he simply knows that he needs to handle what the coaches expect of him on a day-to-day basis. 

“Everybody has a job to do,” explained Fuller. “Everyone is going to come in and work hard, so that’s what I’m going to do here. Come in, work hard and wherever that takes me, that’s where I’m going to go.”

Getting acclimated to the NFL lifestyle is one thing and being able to transition is a key for all rookies. Fuller has had a good impression of his new home and coaching staff only a couple days into his NFL career. 

“It’s great,” said Fuller of the organization. “I love everybody here.”
