Fuller ready to run


Will Fuller‘s been center stage as the discussion focuses on who the fastest man is in Indianapolis. Now the former Notre Dame speedster is just ready to go out and run.

Talking during media availability at the NFL Scouting Combine, Fuller talked about his hopes for the 40-yard dash, and how fast he plans to go.

“4.35 would be real good for me,” Fuller told Irish247. “That’s what I’m shooting for.”

Fuller went through the cattle call on Thursday, coming in close to his specs at Notre Dame—6’0″ and 186 pounds. While his hands (8.25″) and arm length (30.75″) skew smaller than most, Fuller was what scouts thought he was, to borrow from former NFL coach Dennis Green.

After pledging his return to Notre Dame midseason, Fuller talked about the decision to head to the NFL after his junior year anyway, acknowledging that the slew of injuries that hit the team played a part in his thought process.

“Just looking at the year we had, a lot of injuries,” Fuller told Irish247. “I’ve had a healthy career, and I just want to get out of there while I was healthy. Still put up some good numbers this year, so I think I left at a good time; healthy and no injuries.”
