Bears selected Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Fuller (5-foot-11 3/4, 190) was a first-team All-ACC pick by the conference's coaches as a senior despite missing four games with a sports hernia. Put simply, he commanded opponents' respect. A loose-hipped, fluid mover with experience at outside corner, slot, and even "whip" linebacker for the Hokies, Fuller is an NFL-ready defender with plus size, excellent speed (4.49), and lower-body explosion (10-foot-8 broad jump). He's an aggressive tackler and fun to watch on tape. The Bears could be planning to start Fuller opposite Tim Jennings, moving Peanut Tillman to safety. May 8 - 9:46 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles "love" Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller.

Mike Mayock's top cornerback has seen his stock soar at the right time. Fuller's strong showing at the combine -- which not only included better-than-expected numbers, but a clean bill of health -- sent evaluators back to the tape, where they saw perhaps the draft's most versatile CB. Mayock slotted Fuller to the Eagles with the No. 22 pick in his most recent mock draft. The Inquirer's Jeff McLane, however, tweeted a foreboding warning to that prediction: "Problem is [Fuller] probably won't last until No. 22."

NFL Network's Mike Mayock tabs Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller as the 2014 draft's best cornerback.

Mayock called Fuller on of the draft's most underrated prospects over the winter, moved him up to No. 2 when the industry caught up to his admiration, and has now decided to shove all in on the Hokie. "One of my favorite players," Mayock said. "Can play on, off, he can play man or zone. You know what you're getting. He has it in his DNA. Fuller is my No. 1, first- round corner." Mayock slotted Fuller to the Eagles with the No. 22 pick in his most recent mock draft. "Obviously Kyle got hurt midseason, but he has put together a nice career at Virginia Tech," Ravens director of college scouting Joe Hortiz said. "He’s a competitive player with excellent speed and athleticism, and he comes from a very good football family."

NFL Network's Mike Mayock mentioned during his conference call, that in his latest mock draft, he believes the Eagles will select Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller with the No.22 pick.

The Hokies prospect does have the ideal size (6-0 190 pounds) that the Eagles like in their corners, and he has had a versatile role while playing for the Hokies defense throughout his career. His selling point could be his potential to switch between corner and safety at the next level. The Eagles could be very high on Fuller's ability to excel in press coverage and that he is an aggressive tackler. Mayock has already gone on record that he believes Fuller is the top CB in the class.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock believes Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller is the top CB in the class.

Mayock was always high on Fuller, ranking him No. 2 previously, but the respected analyst is now pushing all in on the Hokies' product. Fuller displaces Darqueze Dennard of Michigan State, who dropped to No. 2. The pair is followed by the prospect many see as the top CB on the board, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert. Bradley Roby (Ohio State) and Jason Verrett (TCU), in that order, round out the top five.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell said on the "Ross Tucker Podcast" that Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller can handle all responsibilities asked of an NFL corner.

"I think he's a very versatile player," Cosell said. "He can play in the slot as well, Ross, which maybe increases his value. He's not 'just' a slot guy but he can play in the slot." The analyst mentioned that Fuller has "extensive" experience playing nickel corner at Virginia Tech but has the most experience playing the boundary corner. "I think he can play press, I think he can play off, I think he can play man, and I think he can play zone," Cosell said. "He can do a lot of different things depending on what you want to do defensively."

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller, who has already had 15 pre-draft visits or private workouts, will visit the Jets, Broncos, Rams and Steelers this week, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Fuller (6'0, 194 pounds) is the anti-Jadeveon Clowney, apparently. He took in Buffalo on Monday, and will continue the frequent flyer mile bonanza immediately. Fuller typically slots behind Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard and Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert as the No. 3 CB on expert's boards, but that doesn't mean that the draft media isn't smitten with him. NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock believes he's one of the most underrated players in the draft, Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay says he'll be a starter from Day 1, and CBS Sports' Dane Brugler prefers Fuller to Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert.

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller had a pre-draft visit with the Buffalo Bills on Monday, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.

Fuller has decent straight-line speed and fluidity, and his athleticism could be a selling point for the Hokie prospect. Fuller has the ideal size (6'0, 194 pounds) for the next level and is a tall, rangy cornerback who can compete outside and in the slot. Fuller is projected to be a late first or early second round selection in this years draft, so a No.9 selection would be a bit high for Fuller's services. If the Bills happen to trade back in the draft, it could make sense to select Fuller in the back end of the first or second round.

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller has a pre-draft visit scheduled with the Rams next week.

St. Louis' two first-round picks slot too high to select Fuller, and it's not likely he'd fall to them in the second round, but nobody should complain about due diligence being performed. It's also worth noting that the Rams are shopping the No. 2 pick and figure to be aggressive in moving around the board in May. Perhaps they line up in a slot that befits Fuller's skill, in the latter half of Round 1.

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller had a pre-draft visit with the Bears on Tuesday.

If the Bears pass on Fuller in the middle of the first-round, they probably won't get another shot at him, as the Hokies' star doesn't figure to get beyond the top of the second stanza. NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock believes he's one of the most underrated players in the draft, Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay says he'll be a starter from Day 1, and CBS Sports' Dane Brugler prefers Fuller to Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert.
Apr 8 - 7:14 PM

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller has official visits scheduled with the Bears, Colts, Bengals, Raiders, Jets and Broncos.

He also has upcoming private workouts scheduled with the Colts and Panthers. Fuller typically slots behind Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard and Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert as the No. 3 CB on expert's boards. He's expected to go between the late-first and early-second rounds. "I would love to go in the first round -- that's definitely something I've set a goal for," Fuller said. "I'm excited about how everything is going. I just want to continue to be successful. I'm staying focused and working hard. It means a lot to be able to do this and to have my family share the experience with me."

NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah newest published big board saw Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller jump up seven spots from No. 39 to 32.

Jeremiah believes Fuller will be a starter from Day 1, and it's difficult to argue. Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay agrees, asserting last month that Fuller will "make an immediate impact." Observed Jeremiah: "Fuller is a tall, rangy cornerback with the tools to play both outside and in the slot. In press coverage, he needs to improve his jam but he has the fluidity to mirror underneath and enough speed to carry vertical routes. In off coverage, he uses a side shuffle, reads through the wideout to the quarterback and shows a burst to close on the ball. He is a firm tackler in run support." NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock calls the Hokies' star one of the most underrated players in the draft.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis was "all over" Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller at the Hokies' pro day, reports draft insider Tony Pauline.

Having addressed the offense by acquiring Darren Sproles and re-signing Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin, Philadelphia may turn its attention to defense at No. 22. The leaky secondary requires at least one patch, and Louisville safety Calvin Pryor has been mentioned as another possible first-round target.

Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller will "make an immediate impact as a rookie."

"Fuller is a straight ball player," McShay tweeted while studying Hokie game tape. "Great eyes/instincts. Sells out in run support/special teams. ... Ball awareness is excellent. One of the best I've seen from the CB crop this year. Easy turn and locate." Fuller is the type of player that gets evaluators salivating once they start digging into tape. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler came away from his own Virginia Tech study to say he'd take Fuller over Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert. NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock calls him one of the most underrated players in the draft.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler prefers Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller to Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert.

Brugler called Fuller "a natural," a term he doesn't feel applies to the former Cowboys' star. "Gilbert is tall and fast," Brugler tweeted. "But footwork and technique is lacking. Not a natural." The analyst ceded that Gilbert has the edge as a return man, but said he prefers "natural" athleticism to "athletic upside."
