    Biggs tweeted yesterday the Bears had Kyle Fuller at Halas Hall yesterday. He does really well against the run and seems solid in pass coverage. Worth a shot?

    Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller is visiting #Bears today at Halas Hall per NFL source

    They might even be able to trade down and pick up Fuller with a low 20's pick.

    I would rule out anyone the Bears bring in.
    The last 2 years no one had an idea that they would take Shea and Kyle

    Lol I won't even guess what Phil is up to. Who knows and anything is possible. Maybe Fuller, maybe Jernigan, maybe a punter who the hell knows

    14 seems a bit early for Fuller.

    I see this as Emery covering his base and "looking off" other GMs so to speak. He seems like he leaves no stone unturned and I'm sure has a separate board in case of a sweet trade down option. Fuller would top the board with Jerrigan and Hageman in the 22-30 range.

    Completely false. Both of them visited Halas in pre-draft visits. That makes the odds 100% at this point.

    This I could see with Fuller in the 22-30 range. He is a very active run defender around the line but has to pick up his back pedal on man to man coverage. At 5.11 1/2 he should be able to cover most of the large receivers in the NFC North but his 40 time wasn't great. This is a scenario where you would need a great center fielder to compliment him along with a strong pass rush.

    If all of the other top prospects are gone he may be OK but not at #14. If we traded back in one I'd much rather we took Fuller than Hageman or Nix. In the 20s Jernigan might come into play again but of the two I think Fuller would be the better choice.

    Only if the ghost of Al Davis is sending up the pick. LOL

    I'd agree and of those three I'd be tempted to make it Fuller. I never did like Hageman and Jernigan seems to me like a duplication of Paea. More of a NT who can play some DT and I like the way Paea can get off quickly on the snap.
