With the 41st pick in Pride Of Detroit's 2014 NFL mock draft, the Buffalo Bills select Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller. CLF is serving as the Bills' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.
With the top group of defensive line talent picked clean in the late first and early second round, Jim Schwartz and the Bills' draft room take full advantage by grabbing the best defensive player on the board, cornerback Kyle Fuller from Virginia Tech. No. 24 on Gil Brandt's top 50, Fuller will add youth and talent to a Buffalo pass defense that lost some starters in free agency this offseason. Fuller has the instincts and coverage skills to give the new non-blitzing defense time to get to the QB.
Fuller also has the body frame and skills to convert to safety. In fact, several scouts have him pegged as such. Can he replace Jairus Byrd? Schwartz isn't afraid to convert cornerbacks to safeties.
