The four-year starter will now get a chance at the next level, signing with the Packers

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

After seemingly playing at WSU for a decade, John Fullington will now attempt to stick at the next level, signing a free agent deal with the Packers after going undrafted, according to his agent Collin Roberts.

Fullington only played at WSU for four years, even if it seems like he was around forever. Part of the reason for that is because of just how much he played. Fullington broke into the starting lineup during his freshman season, including five starts at left tackle. He drew considerable praise early in his career and was named to the Pac-10 All-Freshman team.

He bounced around the offensive line, but never left the starting lineup. Fullington started 43 straight games, the second-longest streak in WSU history. He started at four of the five spots along the offensive line, playing every position except center. He eventually settled in on the right side of the line, playing guard and tackle during his senior season.

At 6-foot-5 and 301 pounds, Fullington has the size to play at the next level. The biggest question is whether he has athleticism needed to play at the next level. He struggled with speed rushers at times during his career and he might be better suited at guard at the next level. Either way, he will bring plenty of versatility. Here is what Rob Rang of NFL Draft Scout wrote about Fullington before last season.

Fullington is a three-year starting left guard with experience at left and right tackle, as well. He bends at the knees and shows enough flexibility and strength to handle bull rushers.

Green Bay has been a decent landing spot for UDFAs with 17 making the active roster since 2010.
