Fuller spoke on his mental makeup, the new look defense, and Torrian Gray

Kendall Fuller’s rookie season got off to a good start in 2016, making his first professional start in a Week 4 matchup vs the Cleveland Browns. His solid performance as the team’s slot cornerback, seemingly alleviated the issues that was going on in the Redskins secondary at that position. The solid start as we all know by now did not last very long, the rookie wall hit Fuller hard and he was unable to recover.

Things happen as a rookie, you don’t always turn out like Adrian Peterson, Patrick Peterson, Ray Lewis, etc., point has been made. Each player has their own unique path to take to make their mark in the pros, and this past week in OTA’s Kendall Fuller told the media he is essentially relying on his mental makeup to make him a more improved player this season.

On CSN’s “Redskins Nation” Kendall Fuller stated:

“For me, a big part of my play is just my instincts. For me just mentally, being sharp, being able to see things, getting to a point where I can trust my instincts, and getting that explosiveness back like I had before my injury, so just all those things.”

On how the defense is gelling with all the new additions to the unit:

“Good, we’re just demanding a lot out of each other, setting high expectations out of each other, and pushing each other to compete.”

On how Torrian Gray been in OTA’s thus far:

“Oh I love it. Just that demeanor, that mindset that he brings to the group, his foot is always on the pedal, he’s demanding greatness out of all of us and setting high expectations. So just that energy that he brings to the table is special.”

Fuller has a sense of comfortability now with Torrian Gray as his DB coach, and with comfortability comes more confidence. However training camp is just over a month away, so his development over the off-season will be seen by coaches, reporters, and fans soon enough.
