2014 NFL Draft: Kyle Fuller hopes to be first-round pick


Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller has been watching his draft stock rise since the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine. Fuller has a number of pre-draft visits lined up where he can continue his attempt to impress teams around the league, with his ultimate goal being to be a first-round selection in May’s draft.

“I would love to go in the first round — that’s definitely something I’ve set a goal for,” Fuller said, via the Baltimore Sun.

“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. I’m very competitive, especially with my brothers. That’s helped me to get to where I am now. We always want to be better than the next guy, no matter how fast we are or how many plays we make. All the way back to when I was eight years old, we always loved football, going in the backyard and always wanting to play.”

Fuller has had visits with the Indianapolis Colts and Carolina Panthers, and he also has visits line up with the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Denver Broncos.

Many of the teams that Fuller will be visiting pick in the second half of the first-round, where he would be a solid fit to boost the cornerback-needy secondaries.
