After “National Siblings Day” invaded all of our social media timelines and re-introduced us to our friend’s much more attractive sister, the Lions will be hosting a pre-draft visit with receiver Corey Fuller’s brother, Kendall Fuller, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The latter Fuller is a cornerback out of Virginia Tech and is the youngest of the four Fuller children, all of whom play in the NFL.
Kendall and Corey seem to have a nice and heartwarming brotherly bond, which would make for a smooth transition into the D for Kendall.
“I’d say Corey beat up on me the most,” Kendall Fuller said at the NFL combine. “I think I got it bad when I was younger.”
Aside from being a feel good story, Kendall Fuller would be a great addition on the field. Starting all 12 games as a freshman at Va. Tech, Fuller was named a freshman All-American. He then followed a successful freshman campaign with a stellar sophomore year where he was named a second team All-American and had NFL scouts singing his praises heading into his junior year.
Unfortunately, the star cornerback was limited to just three games last season due to a torn meniscus in his right knee that required microfracture surgery.
Fuller is considered to be a mid-second round prospect, which is precisely where the Lions are picking. While cornerback isn’t the Lions biggest need, you can never have a surplus of good, physical corners.
Fuller’s strengths are considered to be his size, physicality, tacking, and ball skills while the concerns with him are about his speed and susceptibility to penalties.
