With the 238th pick of the NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons select Devin Fuller, wide receiver, UCLA.

Congratulations to a great athlete and team player, Devin Fuller, who entered UCLA as a 4* quarterback and left as a special wide receiver and returner.

Instead of being discouraged when he saw Brett Hundley at quarterback when he arrived on campus, Devin used his 4* athleticism to become a reliable, tough, smart, and speedy wide receiver. He can go wide, but has a knack for finding the open spots in the middle of the field, and was primarily used as a slot receiver for the Bruins. Fuller is also a special, special teams player who averaged 24.2 yards (kick offs) and 11.75 (punts) on his returns last year.

The Falcons are not only getting a great athlete, they are getting a great man who wants to have a positive impact on the world around him, and as ESPN said, the Falcons were looking for speed, smarts and high character. They got it with Devin.

What do you dislike the most out of society right now?

A lot of hate. Hating on the next man. You just have to love one another. I feel like that’s one thing that we’re missing. Everybody has to love each other for us to all succeed. The world is not made for us to hate on each other because we’re all going to need one another some day.

What is your biggest goal outside of football?

To help the next man. To be in broadcasting after football is done, with my UCLA degree.But I just want to help people in need. I feel like that’s the biggest thing.

What lasting impression do you want to leave on this world?

I was here for a purpose and to help other people become better for themselves, while making me a better person for myself.

Congratulations Devin!

Go Bruins!
