One area in which Washington State has traditionally lacked top-tier talent is along the offensive line. Though the Cougars' most recent NFL drafted prospect, Zach Williams (selected by Carolina in the sixth round of 2011), he is one of only four offensive linemen drafted out of Washington State since 1989.If his play over the first two seasons of his career is any indication, however, Fullington could be the next Cougar offensive lineman to earn significant NFL attention. Fullington started six games as a true freshman, the first coming at right tackle and the other five at the all-important left tackle position. Fullington was moved inside to right guard as a sophomore and handled the move nicely, earning honorable mention all-conference honors. He was moved back outside to left tackle by new coach Mike Leach and his staff and should perform well there.
Leach's offense calls for offensive linemen to be split out quite wide. Fullington isn't an elite athlete but has the lateral agility and balance to protect the edge. He's only a junior and needs to get stronger, but Fullington is one to watch for the future. --Rob Rang
08/13/2013 - OTHER WASHINGTON STATE PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: OG John Fullington (6-5, 298, 5.12)...Fullington is a three-year starting left guard with experience at left and right tackle, as well. He bends at the knees and shows enough flexibility and strength to handle bull rushers. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
