Seattle Seahawks 90-man roster overview: Kyle Fuller

By on June 22, 2021 0

With the schedule moved to June and the off-season programs ending recently, NFL training camps will begin in the league in less than two months. To celebrate the new season ahead, we’ll be breaking down the Seahawks’ 90-player roster over the next few weeks, exploring the best and worst scenarios and what to expect from each player entering the 2021 campaign.

Size weight: 6 feet 5 inches, 320 pounds

Statistics 2020: Nine games played with one start

Entering his third year in the NFL, Fuller is still trying to find his rhythm in the league. He spent his first two seasons rebounding with brief stints in Washington and Houston, appearing in 11 games with two starts. Since signing with the Seahawks’ training squad in 2019, he has seen limited action as a reserve center. The former Baylor University star didn’t play at all that year but played nine games in 2020, including a departure for Seattle. An ankle injury cost him a second start in place of Ethan Pocic, but the team remains high on him as an insurance policy and has retained him as an exclusive rights free agent. Returning for a third season in the Pacific Northwest, he will now be the big favorite to keep his backup job against undrafted rookie Pier-Olivier Lestage and returning veteran Brad Lundblade.

The best case scenario: Pocic is missing several games due to injury, and Fuller, 27, is making the most of it this time around, playing well enough to help Seattle secure several wins with him on the roster. This success positions him to potentially be a starter for the Seahawks on the road.

Worst case scenario: Pocic takes a big step forward, further consolidating his status as Seattle’s starting center, while Fuller is pushed to the edge of training camp by Lestage and ultimately not re-signed as a restricted free agent next spring.

What to expect in 2021: The Seahawks clearly hold Fuller in high regard and he has the size and strength to be able to play meaningful snaps in the blink of an eye down center. But in terms of playing time, he hasn’t seen much of the pitch and struggled with a sprained ankle in his only start as a replacement for Pocic last year. Assuming Pocic stays in good health, the only action Fuller will see will be in special teams, but as the former has had his fair share of problems staying on the pitch during his first four seasons in the NFL, the latter will have to be prepared and ready to go. Russell Wilson at all times. Coach Pete Carroll and the staff clearly see something in him and after making minimal changes by adding players to the middle position he should have no problem keeping his job in a reserve role and the team will be. confident in their ability to contribute when necessary.
