Draft Profile: CB Kyle Fuller

Fox Sports profiles potential first round pick, Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Fuller seems to be moving quickly up draft boards from the second round and might well be a first round pick.  Fuller has a high number of visits set up with many teams across the league

A lot of people have hopped on the Kyle Fuller bandwagon. This is a bit disconcerting, although I believe he can be a good player I don't think he's the right pick at 18. If he's there in the second round I'd be totally  cool with pulling the trigger. My main concern is his lack of recovery speed. This could be a reason why he rarely if ever played press man in college. If we do draft him we'll need to upgrade our safeties. Nobody on this team right now could compensate for Fuller's lack of recovery speed when he gets beat at the line of scrimmage and the QB throws the ball over the top. Don't fill yourself up on Fuller in the first...

Damn Dennard is on NFL live right now. It going to be tough to draft a guy who chose to wear those pants on National TV.

I think it's becoming clear that the Jets will have to move up to get one of the top CB's.

Another OT (and off football)...Pineda and the Yanks staff have to be the biggest idiots.

For all the Fanspeak Mock Draft sim fans, they added a new big board....Ourlads big Board is now an option!

From Walter Football here are the following CB's the Jets have been linked to:

Carrington Byndom Texas CB E-W Shrine Game

Darqueeze Dennard Mich. St, Private workout

Pierre Desir  Lindenwood E-W Shrine Game

Kyle Fuller VT Private workout

Phillip Gaines Rice E-W Shrine Game

Justin Gilbert  OK St. Private workout

Dexter McDougle maryland Private workout

Keith McGill Utah, Private workout

Jason Verret TCU Private workout


I wonder if anyone has any other names to add to this list?

we seem to be doing our due dilligence, if nothing else!

OT...Cimini already posted his predictions (pre-draft and final rosters)...yup, 8-8 with the Jets losing the last game (no locker room celebrations).  Awesomely douchey.  


I get the feeling that a lot of people think KC will be just as good as last year, but I don't understand that.  They lost almost their entire offensive line, which was so important to that offense.  They also lost their starting DE.  Plus they didn't really sign anyone to fill their holes.  They still have the draft, but I don't know.  Their defense is solid as can be, so I'd put them on par with the Jets right now.  Alex Smith was efficient last year, but unspectacular.  I just don't get it.

I have noticed that the last couple days....all of the sudden the Comments tracker just starts incrementing and doesn't stop!

@Marvel  

If you are looking for someone to replace David harris eventually, Barrow is not your guy....he is more a cover ILB and core ST...he'd play in sub packages eventually.

@Wilkershakes  

That was pretty friggin' dumb...... then again, this is Joe Girardi we're talking about.

They also added DrafTV as a Big Board and got rid of Optimum scouting.

@a57se  Look out for the Steiny masterlist coming to a website near you next week.

Oh, I left off Raashad Reynolds from Oregon St. who the Jets met with at the E-E Shrine Game.

@Wilkershakes   If you just assume Geno/Vick 2014 improves to average So instead of 12td-21int, the QB goes 18-18, that should be good for 2 wins. That does not take into account improvements with weapons. Also assumes the D stays the same as last year.

@Wilkershakes Too early to tell Wilkshakes, Cimini has to write something or he doesn't pay the rent.


Don't sweat it.

@Wilkershakes  They have a very small chance of replicating their ridiculous turnover margin.

@a57se @Bent  If only the old complaints were true that we only wrote certain articles because we got paid based on how many comments there were.

Smallwood or Skov might be better options, and could be available in the 4th round.

@Bent @a57se

Doesn;t Steiny just focus on players who have been in for a visit?

@WW85 @Wilkershakes   Agreed.  Tough opening slate of games though.  We'll learn quickly if Geno's the guy (if he's the starter).

@Brendan @Wilkershakes    That's why I don't understand how analysts just translate 2013 Chiefs to 2014 Chiefs as being that good.  I actually think they finish with a losing record.

@juunit @a57se

The only point I was trying to make is that the position the LB's played in college don't necessarily translate to rex' D.......he can use players at the position in many ways. I think he is looking for more athletically gifted guys then a Shane Skov/ Max Bullough type.

I think mid-late round is about as much attention as ILB is going to get from the Jets in this draft...too many other, more pressing needs.    

Brendan

@a57se DeMario played LB in a 4-2-5 for the most part. He basically already played 3-4 ILB, he was just given a ton of freedom to roam around and was so fast they used him to cover the slot and stuff. But his base position was more or less what he does now.

@Hazard2012 @a57se@Marvel 

The 4-3 OLB's can play inside in a 3-4 for the most part. Demario Davis played OLB in College.... that is why we are looking at guys like Brown and Pierre-Lewis.

Starr and Tripp are good late round candidates and Ryan Shazier, Kyle Van Noy would be good earlier round guys.

@a57se @Hazard2012 @Marvel  


True...Skov isn't winning many races...but ILB isn't a strength in this draft.   There's Mosley and then a big drop off.

@Hazard2012 @a57se@Marvel 

Skov is glacial......I wouldn't pick him if my life depended on it....he is like David Harris but even slower.

@a57se @Tequila Joe @Marvel  two...Dennard and Gilbert. I wasn't high on Dennard because of the injuries early in his career but the more I watch this kid the more I like him. I didn't want the Jets to draft him but I'm slowly changing my mind. I am not committed to be consistent. I am committed to the truth and the truth is I would draft him if he's there at 18.

@Wilkershakes Charles is just a matter of health. I've had him on a keeper league for years, so I've kept very close tabs on him. When he's healthy, he's staggeringly good. He just has a hard time staying healthy. 

Wilkershakes
Wilkershakes

@Brendan @Wilkershakes   Exactly...not a team that's substantially better than this Jets team.  The likelihood of Charles replicating his year is not that great.  I also forgot they lost McCluster.  Pretty important piece for them.  


*obvious disclaimer:  no draft and fa finished*

Brendan

@Wilkershakes Their defense is still nasty, and they have Charles. 


I'd put them in a group that includes the Jets, probably.
