Fuller: 'Falcons are My Favorite Team'

Not only is Will Fuller one of the top wide receivers in this year's draft class, he also happens be an Atlanta Falcons fan.

"The Falcons are my favorite team," Fuller said. "Dating back to Michael Vick's time there, I just stuck with the Falcons and I'm still a fan."

The Notre Dame star attended high school at Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia, PA, not far from where QB Matt Ryan grew up.

Fuller is familiar with Ryan for a reason other than the fact that they shared a close proximity growing up; he was college teammates with Ryan's cousin, Fighting Irish OL Mike McGlinchey. Although Fuller has yet to meet Ryan, he's hopeful that someday he will, and maybe even begin his NFL career catching passes from Atlanta's Pro Bowl quarterback.

"It would be awesome to catch passes from Matt Ryan," Fuller said. "Having that Philly connection would be awesome. It would feel like I was in high school again."
