Jody Smith of Texans Wire has the details of Fuller’s contract:
"The total value of the contract is reported as $2.46 million, with an average annual salary of $617,242. Fuller is slated to make $465,000 as a rookie."
Fuller could be a potential starter for the Texans in a few years. He could play guard as well as center.
With the Texans already having both Nick Martin and Greg Mancz at center, I think the plan will be for fuller to play multiple positions and give them depth along the offensive line.
Fuller is a very good run blocker, but will need to improve his pass-blocking skills even though he showed some improvement during his time at Baylor.
