The Raiders still need help in the secondary, and there isn’t a much better place to look for help than LSU. Kristian Fulton is next in line for the LSU and could create a great duo for the Raiders opposite Trayvon Mullen.
Fulton, like most LSU cornerbacks, excels in press-man coverage with fantastic patience and fluidity. His ability to flip his hips and make quick transitions allows him to mirror receivers all over the field, and he is aggressive at the catch point with 13 pass deflections this season. According to the Pro Football Focus, Fulton has only allowed 609 yards over the past two seasons, which is about 25 yards per game.
The Raiders were 25th in the league in passing yards allowed per game, 31st in yards per pass attempt allowed, 31st in yards per completion allowed and 22nd in completion percentage allowed. All that to say, they can certainly use a player like Fulton to boost their secondary.
Pick 12 may seem high for a cornerback to most, but if the Raiders ever want to compete for the division with the Kansas City Chiefs, there going to have to improve their secondary. Two capable young corners would go a long way to turning this defense around.
