The Kansas City Chiefs’ right guard spot is up for grabs this off-season and former Vols offensive lineman Zach Fulton is continuing to make his case for the spot, according to Adam Teicher who covers the Chiefs for ESPN.
Rookie Zach Fulton, a sixth-round draft pick from Tennessee, continued his bid for a starting spot at right guard. Fulton split the starter’s snaps with Rishaw Johnson. The Chiefs will get a better gauge on how advanced Fulton is at training camp, where they can wear full pads. But for now at least they are pleased with what they have seen from Fulton.
Fulton is no stranger to being a starter. He started 40 of his 47 career games at Tennessee, with all of those starts coming at right guard.
The SEC experience that Fulton offers is a huge plus to the Chiefs and he could very well end up winning the starting job out of camp.
Kansas City got a steal in the sixth round of the draft this year when they drafted Fulton. The former Vol flew under the radar due to the attention surrounding his former teammates Ja’Wuan James and Antonio Richardson.
Those two guys may have received the most attention, but it could end up being Fulton that makes the most noise in 2014.
