Coach Jim Caldwell singled out WR Corey Fuller for praise following the Lions' rookie minicamp.
Fuller is a second-year player, but didn't appear in a single game last season even though the Lions were desperate for receiving options opposite Calvin Johnson. He'll have to make a big impression on the new coaching regime to have a shot at this year's roster. Golden Tate and T.J. Jones have been added to a team that already included Johnson, Kris Durham and Ryan Broyles. May 19 - 10:26 AM

Lions GM Martin Mayhew said second-year WR Corey Fuller needs "to get stronger in the weight room."

A sixth-round pick in 2013, Fuller is listed as 6'2/204. The speedy developmental prospect spent his entire rookie season on the practice squad even though the Lions were absolutely desperate for wideout help in the wake of injuries to Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles. Mayhew is expected to add at least two receivers via the draft and free agency, so we wouldn't expect a second-year breakout from Fuller.

Lions waived WR Corey Fuller, LB Jon Morgan, and OL Darren Keyton.

They're all practice squad eligible. Fuller will be a priority for Detroit to stash after GM Martin Mayhew drafted him in the sixth round this April.

Lions agreed to terms with No. 171 overall pick WR Corey Fuller on a four-year, $2.283 million contract.

Sixth-round picks are typically 50-50 to make the team, but the Lions' website considers Fuller a "strong candidate" for a roster spot. Fuller was a one-year wonder at Virginia Tech, but boasts 4.43 speed to go along with his 6-foot-2, 204-pound frame. With the Lions absolutely desperate for a downfield burner to pair opposite Calvin Johnson, they'll look for reasons to keep Fuller, instead of vice versa. Still, he's not a realistic threat for 2013 fantasy value, and is little more than a flier in Dynasty leagues.

The Lions' website considers sixth-round pick WR Corey Fuller a strong candidate for a roster spot.

Fuller (6-2, 204) was a one-year wonder at Virginia Tech, but has 4.43 speed and the potential to be an explosive downfield receiver. With Ryan Broyles (ACL surgery) injured and Nate Burleson the favorite for the Lions' No. 2 job, Fuller could be an option for the Titus Young role in Detroit's offense. He shouldn't have any trouble beating out Patrick Edwards and Kris Durham.

Lions selected Virginia Tech WR Corey Fuller with the No. 171 overall pick.

Fuller (6-foot-2 1/4, 204) busted out as a senior vertical field stretcher, hauling in 43 passes for 815 yards (19.0 YPC) and six touchdowns, catching balls from Logan Thomas. An explosive downfield receiver, Fuller clocked a 4.43 at the Combine with a blistering 1.49 ten-yard split. He could contend for the outside receiver spot opposite Calvin Johnson in Detroit.
