Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller
The 22-year-old was a captain for the Hokies last season and was a quiet leader on the team with a strong work ethic. Fuller is one of the "high character" players coaches talk about this time of year. He is a cornerback who is not afraid to get physical. Fuller is strong in the run game as he gets off blocks and wraps up in the open field.
In the passing game, Fuller is disruptive. He reads plays and can play the ball in the air. The Baltimore-native can leap for a player his size which allows him to go up and get the ball and with his large hands he can secure it as well. Fuller can be beat from time to time with a double move but has recovery speed to neutralize any impact.
Fit With the Eagles:
Looking at Fuller, he would be a great fit for the Eagles. He provides more depth at a position of need and will not have to step in and be the guy right away. Fuller could have an impact early in his career while learning under Carroll, Bradley Fletcher, Cary Williams and Brandon Boykin. He projects as an outside cornerback in the NFL unlike Boykin who is one of the top slot corners in the league already.
Fuller was introduced to head coach Chip Kelly by Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis. Kelly and Davis were both in attendance for Fuller's Pro-Day workout at Virginia Tech.
If Fuller is on the board at 22, the Eagles will take a long look at the Hokie as he fits the bill of a high character guy, leader and someone who could step in and play while also being a guy who could be the cornerstone of the secondary in the future.
