Falcons land LSU cornerback in PFF 2020 mock draft

LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton is the selection in Pro Football Focus’ 2020 mock draft, which was released Tuesday.

“Fulton was the highest-graded cornerback in SEC play this season,” according to Pro Football Focus. “NFL evaluators will love that he’s lined up in press coverage on the third-most snaps of any draft-eligible cornerback (301).”

Fulton is a big cornerback at 6-foot and 200 pounds. 

The New Orleans native started all 13 games and finished with 31 tackles and 13 pass breakups and had one interception.

He was targeted five times in the SEC Championship game and allowed one reception for 11 yards and had a pass breakup.
