Texans Select Baylor Center Kyle Fuller
With the 243rd pick overall, the Houston Texans selected center Kyle Fuller from Baylor University in the seventh round. Fuller was a three-year starting All-Big 12 center who played 52 career games for Baylor with 39 career starts, the most starts and games played for the Bears during the time Fuller was there.
Fuller played a key role in Baylor’s running game success throughout his time there, which led the Big 12 in 2015 and 2016. At the NFL Combine, Fuller posted a 5.24 40-yard dash, 23 reps on the bench press, 26″ vertical jump, 96″ broad jump, completed the 3-cone drill in 7.71 seconds, and ran a 4.84 second 20-yard shuttle.
Standing at 6’5″ and 315 lbs and hailing from Wylie, TX, Fuller discussed playing either center or guard with Texans team personnel. With 2016 draftee Nick Martin sidelined last season due to an ankle injury and a reasonably successful stint at center throughout the 2016 last season by back up Greg Mancz, where Fuller spends in time in 2017 is yet to be seen, but it could be at tackle, center, or getting experience via the practice squad.
