RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fuller, the Bearsí first-round pick from a year ago, opened his rookie campaign as the nickelback before ascending into an every-down role midway through the Week 2 victory over the 49ers. After long-time No. 1 corner Charles Tillman exited that week with a triceps injury that required season-ending surgery, Fuller immediately came on and made his mark, hauling in two critical second-half interceptions to seal the game for the Bears and earn himself NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors. Fuller continued to excel in the next few games that followed, but his production took a major downturn in the latter half of the season. Those growing pains werenít unexpected, and didnít prevent Fuller from being a turnover machine, as he finished the season with four picks and three forced fumbles. Vic Fangioís 3-4 scheme will require Fuller to line up as the Bearsí top shutdown corner, an assignment that he appears to be ready to take on. Look for him to only improve as a cover man and as a tackler in his second season.
Selected by the Bears with the 14th overall pick out of Virginia Tech, Fuller will function as the Bears' third cornerback as a rookie, seeing most of his playing time on obvious passing downs. Assuming he develops as expected during his first NFL season, Fuller would likely be groomed for a starting job in 2015, with Charles Tillman's contract set to expire next offseason.
