Kyle Fuller easily possesses the potential to be a successful cornerback in the NFL, but his strength and man-to-man skills are far below average.  Since defensive coordinator Rob Ryan Landed in the Big Easy, the Saints have become much more aggressive in their secondary.  Fuller would be limited to packages that strictly rely on zone coverage.  He belongs in San Francisco where he can play at the nickelback spot and even safety on occasion.  His run stop and zone skills are undeniable, but the Saints will have better options at No. 27 and even in the later rounds of the draft.  My eyes are on TCU’s Jason Verrett.
