Former Woodlawn wide receiver Corey Fuller was drafted in the sixth round by the Detroit Lions.

Taken 171st overall out of Virginia Tech, Fuller is the second Baltimore area player to be drafted this year after former Dunbar star Tavon Austin went to the St. Louis Rams with the eighth overall pick.


After running track at Kansas for two years, the former indoor track Nike All-American transferred to Virginia Tech.

The 6-foot-2, 197-pound receiver caught 43 passes for 815 yards and six touchdowns last season and played in the East-West Shrine All-Star game, where he met with the Ravens. He also met with the Ravens at the NFL scouting combine.

Fuller is the younger brother of NFL safety Vincent Fuller.

At the combine, Fuller said he's been mentored by retired Green Bay Packers wide receiver and Baltimore native Antonio Freeman.

Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers drafted former University of Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey in the seventh round,

Dorsey recently conducted a private workout for the New England Patriots.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder caught 18 passes for 311 yards and three  touchdowns last season.

The Terrapins had issues at quarterback all season, though.

Dorsey ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times at his campus Pro Day workout in College Park.

He had a 10-10 broad jump and a 38-inch vertical leap.

He caught  45 passes for 573 yards and three touchdowns as a junior.
