College Years: Kyle Fuller played his college ball at Virginia Tech and had 4 very productive years for the Hokies.  His physical style of play made him an instant contributor and he saw action in 12 games as a true freshman in 2010 and started 6.  That season, he tallied 32 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, deflected 6 passes and forced 1 fumble.  In 2011 as a sophomore, he started all 14 games and recorded 65 tackles, a whopping 14.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, 7 passes deflected, 2 interceptions and 1 fumble forced.  He was also a second-team All-ACC selection that season.  During his junior season in 2012, Fuller again started every game for the Hokies (13) and was credited with 52 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 5 pass deflections, 2 interceptions and 1 forced fumble.  Despite missing 4 games after undergoing surgery for a sports hernia in late November, Fuller was a third-team All-ACC selection as a senior in 2013.  In 9 games worth of action, he posted 24 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 10 passes broken up, 2 interceptions, 1 forced fumble and also blocked a punt.

Hit the break to see how I think he fits with the Bears…

    Instant gunner on coverage unit for special teams(Beamer Ball), also agree should be atleast starting at nickel…..just a thought but could also consider sliding Jennings inside to nickel and play fuller outside since he has a lil more size than Jennings when matching up against the taller receivers in the league

    I could see when they are in the “nickel” that Jennings becomes the nickel-back. Fuller is brought in to play corner, otherwise, Jennings plays corner.

    Depending on the situation I think Fuller or Vereen could play nickel depending on the match up..Jennings is a solid corner but he did miss some key tackles in that game vs the Packers and he does struggle a bit with bigger, stronger receivers like Jordy Nelson etc. Kyle and Brock could come in contribute in different areas including ST. As far as I’m concerned the Bears had 11 picks that cold be starters on this team I’m just as excited about the Bears signing free agents like Christian Jones, an early round pick who could be an honest LB replacement for any of the LB positions, Senorise Perry, one of the most talented RB’s in the class who’s stock dropped due to his limited production that doesn’t tell the whole story of his season. People, scouts need to remember that some teams are rotating their RB’s quite often, like at LSU or OU, which in one way is good because the RB has less wear and tear but then teams will gripe and say that Perry doesn’t have enough experience to be a strong NFL RB..Utter nonsense..but hey, the Bears just found their future Forte/change of pace RB to line up with Carey..Man what a steal he is..he would’ve been one of the fastest, most athletic and versatile players in the draft. His value is through the roof since he’s played gunner and can also catch passes like a WR..who says he can’t play safety? Ryan Groy was like getting another mid round pick that has the size and talent to be a solid run blocking G, also Marcus Trice and Abdul Smith, if he’s signed, two safeties that are heavy hitters against the run and decent against the pass, they would also upgrade our special teams depth.
