Analysis:

You want a guy like Kyle Fuller on your team. He doesn’t have elite athleticism so he makes it up with smarts, toughness and fundamentals. He’s a good athlete and he plays the game the right way. One can’t help but root for a guy like Fuller. He excels as an off-man cover corner. He doesn’t have the overall strength or hip flexibility to bump and run but he can shadow a receiver and make a play on the ball. His leadership and football smarts are evident by the way he plays. He plays well with his eyes and generally makes the right read. Will be a very good value pick in the second round.
