18. Detroit Lions- Kendall Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

The cornerback position has been a question mark for the Detroit Lions over the past several seasons. They’ve been able to mask this concern to some extent thanks to their ability generate pressure on the quarterback. However, things could be different this year with Ndamukong Suh no longer on the roster.

Kendall Fuller is a on the smaller side for the position but he makes up for it with tenacity and effort. This is a fluid athlete that does a great job mirroring the receiver and holding up in man coverage. However, he also shows the click-and-close skills to play zone.

If the Lions feel comfortable with their current situation at cornerback they could look to address the offensive line.
