With the calendar flipping to June and offseason programs wrapping up across the country, NFL training camps will begin around the NFL in less than two months time. To celebrate the new incoming season, the All Seahawks staff will be breaking down the Seahawks 90-man roster over the next several weeks, exploring best and worst case scenarios and what to expect from each player entering the 2022 campaign.

Aaron Fuller, Receiver

Height/Weight: 5-foot-11, 188 pounds

2021 Stats: N/A

The Seahawks didn’t have to look far in 2020 to find undrafted free agent receiver Aaron Fuller, as the former Washington Husky who hauled in 159 receptions for 2,051 yards and 13 touchdowns during his college career at Montlake. Fuller didn’t make the active roster in 2020 or 2021, but the Seahawks liked him enough to keep him on the practice squad for the duration of both seasons. He was elevated to the active roster for the Seahawks’ final game in 2021 and made his NFL debut in Arizona, but did not record any stats. Back under contract, he will compete in a crowded receiving corps hoping to crack the roster this time around and his candidacy could be bolstered by special teams contributions.

Best Case Scenario: Using his experience in offensive coordinator Shane Waldron's offense to his advantage, Fuller rewards the Seahawks’ patience by showing that he’s a reliable target out of the slot and a special teams mainstay during preseason, beating out other veterans and rookies for the final receiver spot.

Worst Case Scenario: After two seasons on the practice squad, Fuller does not show enough growth and development to give him another chance as he loses out to the more physically gifted receiving additions and isn't brought back in any capacity.

What to Expect in 2022: Although the top of the receiving depth chart is largely set, the fight for the final few spots will be brutal in training camp. DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Dee Eskridge, and Freddie Swain are all likely locks, so that leaves players like Marquise Goodwin, Penny Hart, Cody Thompson, Bo Melton, and Dareke Young competing with Fuller for potentially one or two roster spots. The Seahawks kept Fuller on the practice squad for two seasons, so they clearly see something in him. He needs to step up, however, since the team may be more likely to keep a younger player such a Melton or Young instead of giving Fuller another shot. This seems like the last chance for him to make the active roster out of camp and he’ll need to flash in camp as both a slot receiver and special teamer to have any shot.
