Redskins selected Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller with the No. 84 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.
Fuller (6'0/187) made 28 starts before a torn meniscus ended his 2015 season after just three games, tallying eight career tackles for loss, 35 pass breakups, and eight INTs. He made second-team All-ACC as a true sophomore before the lost junior year. Microfracture surgery on Fuller's right knee prevented him from working out before the draft. The younger brother of NFLers Vincent (S), Corey (WR), and Kyle (CB), Kendall is an instinctive and aggressive ballhawk when healthy, but has questionable speed and may ultimately fit best at safety. Due to his knee recovery, Fuller can't be expected to contribute much as a rookie. Apr 29 - 10:54 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller could "develop into a reliable NFL starter like his older brother Kyle."

"Although his game still needs refinement in areas," Rang wrote, "Fuller has very good short-area quickness with the controlled footwork and natural feel in coverage [necessarily for continued development]." The analyst thinks that younger brother Kendall has more upside than older brother Kyle. While Rang floats the 5-foot-11, 187-pounder as a potential option for the Panthers at No. 30, Fuller has also drawn interest from the Titans. He visited them earlier this week. Tennessee is unlikely to use pick No. 15 on the Virginia Tech product, but they also hold pick No. 33 in the second round, which could reasonably be used toward the corner. Tennessee has more flexibility than a gymnast when it comes to what angle they might take on the draft in a week.

The Titans have scheduled a late visit with Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller.

NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport relayed this one to the masses. Apparently, the Titans want a Fuller visit following his encouraging results at medical rechecks in Indianapolis on Friday. At the time, Rapoport reported that the 5-foot-11, 187-pounder is expected to be ready for training camp and possibly even mini-camp. He is currently rehabbing from microfracture surgery which he underwent in September. If a team is feeling frisky on Fuller, they could take a first-round flier, but the Titans could easily be eyeing him as a potential second or third round selection. They hold six of the first 76 picks.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller visited the Jets last week and is scheduled to travel to the Jets and Panthers this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

Fuller received positive feedback from his medical recheck last week, according to Ian Rapoport. That is great news, as Fuller dealt with multiple knee issues during his final collegiate season. Fuller is likely viewed as a top 50 prospect by many and will be targeted in round two or three.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) received a positive review at Combine medical rechecks.

"Belief is he'll be ready for training camp -- maybe even minicamp," wrote Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Assuming this report is true, Fuller may be able to climb back into the late first round territory. Remember, prior to his injury Fuller was likely ticketed the middle of Day 1. Even he doesn't go in Rd. 1, he won't have to wait long in Rd. 2.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that teams are concerned about Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller's surgically-repaired knee.

Those within the league that the analyst spoke with indicated that Fuller is a first-rounder based on tape, but his knee injury has dropped him to the second day. "Sources said that if the Combine medical recheck goes well, he should be safe on the second day and likely the second round," Campbell wrote. "Teams are worried about Fuller's status and when he would be able to play in his rookie year." We'll find out the results of those rechecks hopefully by the end of the week.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora believes Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller will be a first round pick.

It would be a great accomplishment for Fuller, who dealt with a meniscus injury to start the 2015 season, then underwent microfracture surgery, sidelining him for a number of games. Microfracture surgery is no joke, but neither is Fuller's talent. His game against Michael Thomas of Ohio State did open some eyes, perhaps in a critical way, however.

NFL Draft Scout's Frank Cooney notes that "scouts who once raved about [Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller] as a first-round cinch are now concerned about his durability."

Fuller has suffered major injuries each of the last two seasons, breaking his left wrist in 2014 (he actually played through that) and being waylaid by a torn meniscus early in the 2015 campaign. He is still recovering from microfracture surgery and missed both the NFL Scouting Combine and Pro Day. When healthy, the 5-foot-11, 187-pounder is "instinctive in all aspects of cornerback play, from supporting the run to sorting out pick plays," according to Cooney. Concluded the analyst, "His wrist and knee surgeries need to be checked; otherwise, Fuller should become a starting NFL cornerback."

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) did not participate in his Pro Day event this week.

Fuller had been hoping to give it a go, but he was just not far enough along in his rehab from microfracture surgery. Defensive linemen Luther Maddy and Corey Marshall were also unable to work out. Marshall and Maddy hope to work out for scouts in the middle of next month, while Fuller is no sure thing to be ready to do so himself.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) was compared to Bradley Roby by Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar.

"While I’m not as sure about Kendall’s technique,especially his body control and occasional recklessness, I do believe that he can be a quality NFL starter," Farrar wrote. "Most likely, it would be with a team that plays a lot of nickel, with Fuller either in the slot or otherwise unburdened by the No. 1 role." Fuller is currently rehabbing from microfracture surgery to correct the damage of a torn meniscus. "There’s nothing at all wrong with being a top-level No. 2 cornerback at football’s highest level, and that’s where I believe this Fuller is headed—provided, of course, that his injuries don’t back up on him and he gets some next-level coaching on a few important things," Farrar wrote. Fuller hopes to participate in Virginia Tech’s pro day Wednesday.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris pegs Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) as the No. 57 prospect in the class.

"Has very good closing speed and is aggressive when closing," Norris wrote. "Best at mirroring receivers along the sideline, stays in phase but does not always turn and locate the football. 'Click and close' is apparent. Dealt with a torn meniscus to open the season then underwent microfracture surgery." Held out of the Combine due to the injury, Fuller hopes to participate in Virginia Tech’s pro day Wednesday.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) would have been a first-rounder had he not gotten hurt, says an NFL scout, but has fallen into Round 2.

Fuller tore a meniscus in Week 3 of last season and was forced to eventually undergo microfracture surgery to correct the damage. "If he wasn't hurt he'd be a first-rounder," the scout said. "He'll probably end up being top of the second based on size and ability. His sophomore film really was very good." Fuller, the younger brother of Kyle and Corey Fuller, certainly has genetics on his side on the road to recovery. "He's faster than his brother in Chicago (Kyle)," said another scout. "He's not as good a football player or as strong."

Outside of the bench press, Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller (knee) did not participate in any Combine drills.

Fuller, who underwent season-ending microfracture surgery in September, said his knee is currently 90 percent. "My knee doing really well," Fuller said on Saturday. "I’m doing pretty much everything, doing a lot of drills. Cutting, planting, just working on getting that power back. Other than that, the motions feel really well." The NFL spent the weekend poking and prodding him during medical examinations. "Man, it was rough," Fuller said of the evaluation process. "That’s what I expected coming off the knee surgery and having my wrist surgery. It was MRI exams, CT scans. All of that stuff." Fuller is optimistic he'll be able to participate in Virginia Tech’s pro day on March 16. He'll hold a personal workout for NFL teams if he can't.

Virginia Tech CB Kendall Fuller is unlikely to run or do athletic testing at next week's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

Fuller's final season on campus was cut short when he suffered torn knee ligaments last fall. Prior to the injury, Fuller was considered a first-rounder. The younger brother of Kyle and Corey may slip into Day 2 due to his rehab process. If he does, he probably won't have to wait long for the phone to ring.

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.
