While teams are unable to visit or meet with 2020 NFL Draft prospects physically, they are allowed to conduct three meetings a week virtually.

According to a source, one of those prospects is Washington Huskies wide receiver Aaron Fuller.

Fuller, 5-foot-11, 188 pounds, played four years at Washington accumulating 159 receptions for 2,051 yards, and 13 touchdowns. The bulk of his production would come during his junior and senior seasons where Fuller hauled in 117 receptions for 1,576 yards, and 10 touchdowns.

On special teams, Fuller was the team’s primary punt returner during his last two seasons with the Huskies, returning a total of 48 punts for 390 yards (8.8 yards per return), including 22 returns in 2019 for 250 yards (11.4 yards per return), and an 88-yard touchdown.

The Jaguars will enter the draft seeking not only playmakers on offense, but also on special teams. Last season, the Jaguars were unable to find a dependable returner due to injuries to wide receiver Dede Westbrook, the team’s original primary punt returner.

Fuller could potentially fill that role, and is projected to go in the later rounds in this wide receiver-heavy draft. Teams also typically host players in which they expect to make priority undrafted free free agents.

At the 2020 NFL Combine, Fuller ran a 4.59 40-yard dash while posting a vertical jump of 34 inches.

Due to the on-going quarantine caused by a novel coronavrius, the Jaguars, and all teams in the NFL are forced to conduct any meetings online or via phone. Per a league-wide memo, teams are only allowed to conduct three meetings a week with an individual prospect and the meetings themselves must not exceed one hour.
