I’m Back!!!

About two weeks ago I wrote an article on how WR Odell Beckham Jr. is a realistic option in round 1 and how he would kill it at the combine; well he did just that. Now he’s still an option, but two things have happened: first more teams have taking an interest in Beckham Jr. and he might be gone before we pick and second the gap between the top CB’s and the rest have become closer. That is why I’m changing my pick to CB Kyle Fuller.

Now this pick came down to Kyle Fuller and Jason Verrett whom I both like a lot, but the lack of size on Verrett was the deciding factor. Now Verrett plays bigger than his size, but with Fuller standing at six feet tall and 190 pounds he can cover the bigger WR’s. What Fuller does well is he has amazing instincts to be a ball hawk and to jump routes while still being good enough against the run. Kyle Fuller was having a great senior season at Virginia Tech before he got injured, but he has starting experience with over forty plus games of playing time.

    will he be there in the 2nd?

    • tbell11

      Probably not.

  • Parker Richardson

    Hadn’t looked too much into Kyle Fuller before this. I really like his toughness and the fact that he isn’t afraid to lay a hit. I like this pick but maybe his subpar 40 time will cause him to drop to the chargers pick in the 2nd. Especially since teams will be targeting the 6’3″ guys like jean baptiste and mcgill in the 2nd to try and copy the seahawks

    • tbell11

      He’ll likely be gone when the 49ers pick or he won’t last past the redskins pick in the early 2nd.

    • Julien Bélair

      Teams will be targeting the 6’3” guy….. Well that is only media assomption. I am not buying it

  • Gunnar Martin

    I really like Fuller. I think he has a great chance at being the best corner from this draft class.

  • CALiFORNiAkiD

    I like Verrett better than Fuller, although I do like Fuller.
    But not in the 1st Round.

    Fuller plays to much zone, while Verrett can do it all.

    • Julien Bélair

      Verrett is our guy. I would take him over Dennard

    • afroamongfew

      You realize that we play a TON of zone and off-man coverage in our defense, right?

  • michael walker

    fuck that nigga verrett, FULLER IS OUR GUY AT 25!!!!
