According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Carolina Panthers will be privately working out Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller.
Fuller is widely considered one of the top four cornerbacks in this Draft class, along with Darqueze Dennard, Justin Gilbert and Jason Verrett. The Panthers already met with Verrett last month, so Fuller is now the second top-tier cornerback that the Panthers will be working out.
Fuller is a very impressive prospect to watch on film. He has the prototypical size for the cornerback position, standing 6-feet tall and 190 pounds. He also has solid speed and fluid hips. Fuller’s greatest asset is his ability to play and excel in any type of coverage anywhere on the field. He has experience in zone, press man coverage and off-man coverage, lined outside or in the slot. Fuller even played the "whip" linebacker role in the Hokies defense a few times. Fuller is also an excellent tackler and his ability to seal the edge in the run game is unmatched by any other cornerback in this year’s Draft.
Fuller is currently projected to go in the late first round of the Draft, although that could change depending on how confident teams are in his ability to recover from his sports hernia, which caused him to miss six games in 2013, and also prevented him from playing in the 2014 Senior Bowl.
