CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes the "potential is there" for Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller "to be a starting corner in the NFL."
"Fuller has the agile, coordinated footwork to mirror with receivers off the line and stay in their hip pocket down the field, using his body position and length to make plays on the ball. He has terrific ballskills with the read/react skills to quickly diagnose and attack. Fuller is still learning what he can and can't get away with and his game requires refinement, but the potential is there to be a starting corner in the NFL," Brugler wrote. Prior to Fuller's knee injury, he was considered a potential first rounder. With NFL bloodlines running deep in the Fuller family, it's been often said that Kendall could me the most talented of the Fuller brothers. Thu, Dec 17, 2015 02:05:00 PM

In a statement, Virginia Tech HC Frank Beamer said that "Virginia Tech is better because the Fuller brothers were Hokies."

Junior CB Kendall Fuller told Beamer his intention to enter the 2016 NFL Draft, prompting the head coach's statement. Said Beamer, "The Fullers [Vinny, Corey, Kyle and Kendall] are what college football players should be." He praised their collective intelligence and character, as well as their competitiveness. Brother Kendall's currently rehabbing from September knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus. Where he lands in the draft will depend on medical exams this spring, but he was considered among the better corners in the country prior to being waylaid by the knee.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller will declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, according to Neil Stratton.

Fuller is the younger brother of Kyle and Corey, with Kyle being a first-round pick by the Bears just a few years ago. Kendall tore his meniscus and underwent surgery early in the year, which kept him out for the remainder of the season. Fuller was hyped up by many analysts, including Mel Kiper who had Fuller ranked as the top player at his position prior to the season.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller as the No. 13 overall prospect despite his knee injury.

"When he's at 100 percent he can be special, and some bad moments for him have been when he wasn't playing at full capacity," Kiper wrote. "uller has three older brothers who went to VT, and all landed in the NFL, and Kendall is the top prospect at this stage if you compare them. He has great instincts in coverage, plays physical and was an All-American in 2014, even though (again) he wasn't at 100 percent." Fuller, like Myles Jack, tore a knee meniscus. Evaluators don't seem particularly concerned about either.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller (knee) remains ranked as the No. 12 overall prospect by CBS and is projected as a first-rounder in both of the site's mock drafts.

Fuller is out for the year after undergoing season-ending knee surgery. "The six-foot, 198 pound Fuller is a fluid and savvy defender whose instincts and poise when the ball is in the air helped him record eight interceptions and an NCAA-best 34 pass breakups over his first two seasons at Virginia Tech," wrote Rob Rang. At this time, it seems logical that he would declare for the draft after this season. We'll find out over the winter.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller initially tore the knee meniscus leading to his season-ending surgery during preseason camp.

Fuller tried to play through the injury without much success. He looked terrible against Ohio State in the opener and missed last week's game against East Carolina. "Kendall was very determined to compete as long as he could with this injury," coach Frank Beamer said in a statement. "While we are all disappointed that he is sidelined for the remainder of the season, we know Kendall will approach his rehab with a positive attitude and will continue to contribute to our team with his knowledge and leadership." Fuller could still go in Round 1 if he enters the NFL draft. Another option is to return to school.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery on Tuesday.

Fuller was considered one of the top corners in the country heading into the season, but now gets added to the ridiculously large list of season ending injuries across the country. Virginia Tech previously said Fuller suffered a knee sprain and would miss the upcoming contest against Pitt. However, the injury was obviously more serious. Fuller could return for the 2016 season.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller is unlikely to play against Pitt due to a knee sprain.

Fuller missed the Hokies last contest against ECU, which was a loss. The junior corner will not get to face one of the nation's best receivers in Tyler Boyd, who has caught 21 passes in two weeks for 226 yards and a touchdown since returning from suspension.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. noted that of the three Fuller brothers who have attended Virginia Tech, junior CB Kendall Fuller is "the top prospect at this stage if you compare them."

Fuller's three older brothers all played under HC Frank Beamer and subsequently landed in the NFL, but Kiper likes baby brother Kendall to outshine them. "He has great instincts in coverage, plays physical and was an All-American in 2014, even though he wasn't at 100 percent," wrote the ESPN draft expert, who did caution that consistency would be the key in 2015 if the 6-foot, 190-pound junior wants to fulfill his potential. Fuller has broken up 26 passes while picking off eight over the last two seasons.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang describes Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller as "athletic, physical and instinctive."

"Fuller may prove an even more exciting prospect than older brothers Vincent, Corey and Kyle - each of whom currently play in the NFL," Rang wrote. The 6-foot, 190-pound Fuller posted 54 tackles, with 4.5 for loss and two sacks, earning first-team All-ACC and third-team All-American honors in 2014. Fuller has posted 26 passes breakups and eight interceptions in two seasons of play with the Hokies.

Per NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter, Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller blends an enticing combination of "excellent ball skills and tenaciousness."

"His foot quickness and fluid hips keep him in the back pocket of receivers, so look for his interception total to increase with two healthy wrists this season," Reuter wrote. The analyst ranks Fuller as the No. 9 overall junior draft prospect. Incredibly, Fuller shrugged off a fractured wrist last season to finish sixth in the nation with 15 pass breakups.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller "has long been labeled the most talented of the Fuller brothers and shows the ability to shut down opponents," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Pauline grades him as a Rds. 1-2 prospect. Fuller finished sixth in the nation with 15 pass breakups last season and added two interceptions, earning first-team All-ACC and third-team All-American honors. The 6-foot, 190-pound Kendall is the brother of Kyle, a first-rounder of the Chicago Bears.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller "might be the best of" the Fuller brothers, notes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"Despite playing with a fractured wrist for most of last season, Kendall Fuller used his excellent ball skills and tenaciousness to intercept two passes and break up 15 others. His foot quickness and fluid hips keep him in the back pocket of any receiver he's assigned to cover," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot, 190-pound Fuller recorded 54 tackles, including 4.5 for loss and two sacks, earning first-team All-ACC and third-team All-American honors in 2014. Three of Kendall's older brothers Vincent, Corey, and Kyle all play in the NFL.

Virginia Tech junior CB Kendall Fuller "could end up the best of the Fullers, and if you know anything about football you know that's high praise," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Kiper ranks Fuller as the third-best underclassmen cornerback prospect in the nation. "An NFL-looking talent since he stepped on the field as a freshman, he'll probably be there in the fall of 2016," Kiper wrote. Fuller finished sixth in the nation with 15 pass breakups last season and added two interceptions, earning first-team All-ACC and third-team All-American honors. The 6-foot, 190-pound Kendall is the brother of Kyle, a first-rounder of the Chicago Bears.
