Sixth Round (Pick No. 205): Aaron Fuller, WR – Washington

It stinks waiting until the sixth round to get a wide receiver, but with more pressing needs the team finds themselves in this position. Thanks to a deep tight end grouping, two superstar receivers, and several talented, young players at the position, they can afford to wait a bit.

With most of the top prospects off the board, the Vikings are going to be looking for a player with good hands and route running to play inside or outside and pick up a first down when needed. Aaron Fuller could be that guy.

Fuller isn’t going to blow people away with his top speed but his short-term acceleration and shiftiness will make him a great addition to a team with deep threats like Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.

He will need to crispen his routes a bit but that is something the team can work with him on. While he works on that, he can be in the competition for returning punts and play on special teams while working his way up the receiver ladder.
