CB Kyle Fuller formally introduced by Bears

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Kyle Fuller thinks he is ready to come in and contribute to the Chicago Bears.

Fuller met with the media Friday after the defensive back from Virginia Tech was selected with the No. 14 pick in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night.

Fuller says he is looking forward to learning from Pro Bowl cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. Fuller is expected to play on Chicago's nickel defense and special teams at the outset of his pro career.

General manager Phil Emery says the 33-year-old Tillman will remain a cornerback, ruling out a move to safety. He says Fuller is versatile enough to help in other ways until the makeup of the roster changes.
