Chicago Bears 2014 NFL Draft Picks: Bears select CB Kyle Fuller

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears have made their decision with the #14 selection... and it is unsurprisingly a surprise.

With the 14th selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears select Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller.

The 6'0, 190 pound cornerback plays with a lot of size, and has reminded many scouts of fellow Chicago Bears CB Charles Tillman. He can play a lot of positions, both inside and outside, and plays with a reckless abandon that Bears fans are used to seeing on the defensive side of the ball. He can play in multiple formations, is good in pass coverage and tough against the run.

This might be considered a reach, as it could be argued that the Bears might have been able to trade back and still grab Fuller, but General Manager Phil Emery got the guy he wanted.  Emery is going to make a career out of surprising people with his 1st round Draft picks.

The Bears re-signed Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings in the offseason... but Fuller wasn't drafted at 14 to stand on the sideline. Could he play nickel/dime/safety in 2014?

With the players that were still available on the board, what are your thoughts?
