2014 NFL Draft Rumors: Kyle Fuller visits Bears, will see Bengals, Broncos, Colts, Jets & Raiders


Many pundits consider Virginia Tech Hokies’ cornerback Kyle Fuller to be the third best cornerback prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft, ranking him just behind Justin Gilbert of the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Darqueze Dennard of the Michigan State Spartans.

That means he will likely be mid-to-late first round pick or a fairly high second round pick.

According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, Fuller will visit with the Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets and Oakland Raiders and has already worked out for the Colts and Carolina Panthers.

Kyle Fuller boosted his draft stock during a strong NFL scouting combine in February where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds with a  38.5-inch vertical leap, a 10-8 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds a dozen times.

Now, he’s in the midst of a busy travel schedule that a league source said includes official visits with the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Denver Broncos. He also has private workouts with the Colts and Carolina Panthers.

Fuller got things started by visiting the Bears on Tuesday.

 

The Bears obviously need to get younger at corner so they could be a particularly good fit for Fuller.
