3. Detroit Lions

Fuller's off-man coverage and run stop ability would be crucial for the 49ers in the nickelback spot. Pittsburgh is still looking for Keenan Lewis' replacement after losing him to free agency last year. With two older guys in the secondary, the Lions could use another CB, so why not bring Fuller to Detroit to play with his brother, Corey?

Fuller has great NFL potential, but his man-to-man coverage skills are below average. However, fitting him into a 3-4 scheme that runs a zone coverage defense could be ideal. With those skills and his excellent run stop ability, I could even see him making a transition into the safety spot if he added a little bulk. There is always room for growth, so Fuller could be a great pickup in the first round.

Rumor has it that the Detroit Lions are expressing an interest in Fuller as of late after a mid-April visit. He could fit nicely into a nickelback role alongside veteran starters Rashean Mathis and Chris Houston. Kyle's older brother Corey also plays in the Motor City, so having family on the roster could result in extra competitiveness and hard work by both of the Fullers.
