The Bears' selection of Fuller was praised by's Pete Prisco, who wrote, "I love the Fuller pick. The top corner in my mind and [the Bears] need corners in a division with two good passers."

Said Fuller after his selection (via CBS Chicago): "We didn't talk about it specifically, but coming in, I feel like they know I can play corner or nickel, possibly safety. Whatever it is, I'm a versatile player. I know they'll put me in the best situation for myself and for the team.

“I haven't actually played safety. Some of the things we did at Virginia Tech was some safety stuff. but being able to line up… My skill set, as far as being able to play safety, I'm tough, physical, can come up and tackle. I haven't played it, but I played corner and nickel, and I feel like I can do that.”
