Bills continue to put premium on CB with Fuller visit


Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller paid a visit to the Buffalo Bills on Monday, adding to the growing list of corners that have strolled into Orchard Park.

Five of the twenty visits held by the Bills this offseason have been cornerbacks, more than any other position. Six have been defensive backs.

The 190-pound Fuller, who has multi-position versatility and has shown toughness beyond his size, is expected to be a first- or second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He nabbed six interceptions and four forced fumble in his collegiate career.

Despite his somewhat skinny stature at six feet tall, Fuller racked up three All-ACC performer awards and managed 23.5 tackles for loss as a Hokie. Although he is known as an aggressive player, the main concern with Fuller is his being overaggressive to compensate for his lack of size, according to Dane Brugler of

Fuller recorded a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash and a 38.5 inch vertical jump at the NFL Combine this year. He won't be the first in his family to play in the NFL, as brothers Vincent and Corey Fuller also have professional football experience.

Vincent played as a cornerback under current Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz from 2005-2010 with the Tennessee Titans and again in 2011 with the Detroit Lions. Corey is a current wide receiver for the Lions.
