2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Kyle Fuller
The Colts would love to add some talent at cornerback this offseason to improve their last-ranked pass defense. Will Chris Ballard take a look at Kyle Fuller?
Kyle Fuller was the 14th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but he had a terrible rookie year in Chicago as his aggressive style of play got him beat often.
Since then, Fuller has learned how to be a playmaker without giving up those big plays. He is coming off of the best year of his short NFL career after missing 2016 with an injury.
Fuller broke up an astounding 22 passes in 2017 while picking off 2 passes, and he is one of the top free agent cornerbacks available this offseason.
If the Colts are unable to retain Rashaan Melvin, they could be in serious trouble at cornerback. Quincy Wilson is a promising prospect, but there isn’t much talent surrounding him and there is even less experience behind him on the depth chart.
The ideal offseason would see the Colts keep Rashaan Melvin, add another elite cornerback, and allow Quincy Wilson to take a step forward in his second NFL season.
Getting a talented young cornerback like Kyle Fuller would be a great move for Chris Ballard, and it would be an important piece to add in improving their pass defense. The Colts have the resources to pay for a top cornerback if they so choose.
