CB Kendall Fuller Names Cole Beasley “Toughest WR To Cover”

The have been the focus of much criticism as of late, and deservedly so. The group seems to lack speed, ability to win vertically, and the ability to create sufficient separation for .

While all of this can be true, former Washington turned some heads with his comments about a particular Cowboys earlier this week. The recently traded Fuller claimed that is the toughest receiver to in the .

Yes, you read that right. The toughest to guard in the whole league.

As you would expect, these comments were met with some confusion. But to be honest, it makes sense. Fuller is primarily a slot conerback, and was tasked with covering Cole Beasley twice a year while with Washington. Beasley has proven to be a dangerous weapon from the slot against man coverage, and even the talented Fuller has had his issues.

Fuller rarely is asked to guard the outside receivers which many would think are “toughest to cover,” and Cole Beasley was considered a top slot wide out just one season ago.

Perception can change a lot after one season. Now Cole Beasley might become a cap casualty, and could be cut this to make room for another dynamic receiver. Plus, it appears the Cowboys have found Beasley's immediate replacement in former North Carolina WR .

Regardless, Cole Beasley had some fun with Fuller's comments, tweeting out that it's about time someone recognized him for his talents.

How the Cowboys handle their entire receiving corps, especially Cole Beasley, this offseason will be incredibly important to how this team performs going forward. With that being said, I wouldn't be shocked if Fuller's “toughest player to cover” is on a different roster in 2018.
