Draft Scout Kyle Fuller News
09/14/14 - CB Kyle Fuller was pressed into full-time action Sunday night because of injuries to the Bears' top two right corners, Charles Tillman (triceps) and Sherrick McManus (quad). Fuller responded with two fourth-quarter interceptions that led to touchdowns in the Bears' come-from-behind victory.
08/31/14 - CB Kyle Fuller will be ready for the opener. The first-round draft pick is slated to play in the nickel as the left cornerback, and on special teams. An ankle injury took him out the second preseason game and he set out the remaining two.
08/18/14 - CB Kyle Fuller remains out with a sprained ankle suffered against Jacksonville Thursday. The 2014 first-round draft pick is listed as day to day.
05/12/14 - A Fuller corner may make a better defense...When defensive tackle Aaron Donald went to the St. Louis Rams one pick ahead of the Bears, it mean they would probably be looking at a player in the secondary. Emery said three of the six players they had singled out as potential first-round picks were still there when they picked, including Fuller. Emery said little was brewing on the trade front, either. "When New York (Giants) turned in their pick, I said, 'we're not moving anywhere, we're going to get a really good player,' " Emery said.
The Bears defense has changed somewhat since Marc Trestman became head coach, but the emphasis remains zone. "The defense that I played with at Virginia Tech prepared me (for that) as well," Fuller said. The Bears have said defense is a priority and tackle and safety or linebacker are possibilities in the second and third rounds Friday. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A Fuller corner may make a better defense...Last year's starter, Kelvin Hayden, went down with a season-ending hamstring injury in preseason, and rookie Isaiah Frey played the spot all year without making an interception. So the opportunity is there for Fuller to step onto the field with the nickel coverage unit. "We expect him to contribute his first year, and obviously as time (goes on) be a starter," Emery said. Besides nickel back, Fuller could also fit in as a key special teams player. Bears coaches had him ranked one of the highest special teams players on the board. "This is a player with length, with skill, athleticism, versatility, productivity, and beyond that the better part is he's even a great person," Emery said.
Fuller had a vertical leap of 38 1/2 inches. He ran a 4.49-second 40 at the combine, but there are questions about his strength after he did just 12 reps in the bench press. He had a sports hernia that cost him four games last year, but said he was "100 percent" at the combine. The Bears also like Fuller's pedigree. The 5-foot-11 1/2, 192-pounder is one of four Fuller brothers to play for Virginia Tech, and the third to go into the NFL. His oldest brother, Vincent, lettered for the Hokies from 2001-2004 and played parts of seven years in the NFL with Tennessee and Detroit. His other brother, Corey, is with Detroit and is a wide receiver, but has yet to play in a game. "It means a lot in terms of how he presents himself as a professional, in understanding what professionalism means in the NFL," Emery said. - The Sports Xchange
