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.
