Kyle Fuller struggled with some injuries during the 2013 College Football Season but whenever Fuller was on the field for the Hokies, he was one of the top 10 to 15 cornerbacks in all of college football in 2013. Kyle Fuller was not a player that was seen as a player that could go before the third day of the 2014 NFL Draft entering the season but Fuller had a great senior season and saw his draft stock improve significantly. Fuller has the potential to be the first Hokie off the board in the 2014 NFL Draft and make sure Virginia Tech makes some noise during the first two days of the draft.

Kyle Fuller has had tons of collegiate success and while he struggled to stay healthy at some points during the 2013 College Football Season, Fuller did end up with 2 interceptions and 24 tackles while being one of the ACC’s most feared cornerbacks. Fuller is a high energy player that can immediately be put on special teams and make an impact while he also has the potential to start as a rookie. Fuller has a very good combo of size, speed, and strength while his quality instincts make him a player that will go in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The biggest concern with Kyle Fuller will be the fact that he had the injuries he had this past season and people will start to wonder if he can stay healthy. Personally, I don’t think that is much of an issue for Fuller but there is definitely the potential for that to be a problem. Fuller also doesn’t seem to have the biggest ceiling though Fuller has shown the potential to definitely be a starting NFL cornerback. Fuller seems likely to be picked somewhere in the third round with a small chance that he slides up in to the late second round. Kyle Fuller seems likely to be the first Hokie taken in the 2014 NFL Draft.
