Former Virginia Tech Cornerback Taken In the Third Round

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Fuller brothers added another member to the N.F.L. Friday night.  Kendall Fuller was selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round.

Kendall Fuller began his Virginia Tech career with a huge statement.  In 2013 Fuller made an instant impact in the Hokies defensive backfield.  He played in 13 games, starting for twelve of them.  His impressive play earned him the A.C.C. Defensive Rookie of the Year Award.  Heading into his sophomore season, Fuller continued his stellar play.  He finished that season being named All-ACC for the 2014 campaign.   Before the 2015 season, Fuller was included on many All-American watch lists, and was poised to cement his legacy as a Hokie legend.  Unfortunately, Fuller was injured and only appeared in three games in 2015.  Before the injury, Fuller was slated to be a first round draft pick.  He will be joining brothers Kyle and Corey in the N.F.L.  It was learned that Fuller tore his meniscus in his right knee some time during fall camp prior to the 2015 season.  The fact that Fuller tried to play demonstrates his amazing toughness as a football player.  Injuries were nothing new to Fuller, as he played the 2014 season with a fractured wrist.
