His last name should be familiar to most Tennessee Titans fans. After all, his brother was a former defensive and special teams player for many years in Nashville; and with the 11th overall selection, the Titans might just welcome the Fullers back to the family.

Kyle Fuller, the oft-forgotten CB from Virginia Tech, may not be getting the same amount of hype as a Darqueze Dennard or Justin Gilbert, but the former Hokie standout is quickly moving up draft boards. While he isn’t the physical specimen Gilbert or a heavy hitter like Dennard, Fuller excels in overall football skills. That’s something GM Ruston Webster knows is a big skill as it is the same attribute that led the Alterraun Verner being drafted by the Titans in 2010.

Fuller has great route recognition and does a good job anticipating passes and breaking on the ball. He can can play cover-two or man coverage and his versatility could be enticing to defensive coordinator Ray Horton.

The Titans do have potential depth in Coty Sensabaugh and Blidi Wreh-Wilson, but a talent like Fuller would be hard to pass up. An opportunity to draft a top-three corner with the 11th overall pick would allow the Titans to leave the first round feeling pretty good about the value of their pick.
