Fulghum's parents were Foreign Service Officers, so he did not live in the United States until his high school years (though he was born in Virginia when his mother was there for training). He walked on to ODU with only two years' playing experience in high school and worked his way into a scholarship quickly. Fulgham contributed as a redshirt freshman (6-89-8.9) and then started all 13 games in 2016 (29-478-16.5, eight TD). His game took a step back in 2017 (30-394-13.1, one TD) with only seven starts in 12 appearances. Fulgham formed a strong duo with Jonathan Duhart in 2018, joining his teammate on the second-team All-Conference USA squad and leading the conference with 1,083 receiving yards (63 receptions, 17.2 average) and scoring nine times in 12 games (eight starts) for the Monarchs.

Rounds 3-4
Overview
Fulgham is a big, competitive target with above-average ball skills, but a lack of separation traits could limit his ability to uncover against NFL press corners. Fulgham does his best work down the field, but he'll need to run well at the combine as his tape doesn't feature much vertical separation. While there might be some athletic impediments in his way, the former walk-on has the talent to go get the rock and has already proven an ability to play beyond expectations in the past.
Strengths
  • Big target who plays to his size
  • Hugs the numbers, giving quarterback ample space to drop it in on deep boundary throws
  • Quick to turn and locate the football
  • Accurate adjustments as ball-tracker
  • Comfortable when crowded and creates late separation to catch
  • Mid-air ballerina with body control to twist and secure the catch
  • Highest point-stabber with excellent timing to maximize his leaps
  • Sticky blocker with strong hands and a desire to finish
  • Had a touchdown catch in each of his last nine starts, which included four games with 150-plus yards
Weaknesses
  • Average foot quickness could hurt his ability to elude NFL press corners
  • Leggy strider with prolonged, top-heavy entry into breaks
  • Missing top-end speed for separation down the field
  • Below-average burst from stems and breaks
  • Too gradual in his turns and doesn't gain enough space
  • Missing athletic components to threaten after the catch
  • Could face limited success to uncover on first and second level
