27. New Orleans Saints
Kyle Fuller
Cornerback, Virginia Tech

Previously: Aaron Donald (Defensive Tackle, Pittsburgh)


The New Orleans Saints are in need of a starting cornerback. Kyle Fuller has been climbing up the boards lately. He has small size, but his talent and aggresiveness make up for that. Fuller is a good fit in zone coverage as well as in man coverage. He is a good tackler and likes to keep the play in front of him, allowing catches but taking away big plays from his matchup.


Fuller is an immensely talented prospect who has some injury concerns keeping him from going much higher, but the Saints are guaranteed a day one starter from the nickel and eventual full-time outside starter by adding Virginia Tech’s Kyle Fuller. Prior to a finger injury that kept him off the field in his senior year, Fuller was named Honorable Mention All-ACC in 2012.
