Fuller is an interesting prospect with a laundry list of strengths ranging from being a ball hawk at Virginia Tech with eight interceptions in his first two seasons. He also has great bloodlines as three of his brothers have already reached the NFL, including Kyle Fuller, who was a first round pick by the Chicago Bears.

However, he had one glaring question mark looming over him which is a torn meniscus suffered prior to the 2015 season. He played the first three games of the season with the injury before deciding to get microfracture surgery to repair it.

Last week, he received positive news that should help his stock next weekend in the NFL Draft. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the belief after his medical re-check is that Fuller should be ready for training camp and could potentially be ready for mini-camp.

It is certainly a risk drafting a player coming off a major knee surgery like Fuller but the Panthers are in excellent position to take that risk. They probably won't have to rush him onto the field and can give him even more time to recover from the injury.
