NFL Mock Draft 2014: Saints Select Kyle Fuller in SB Nation's Pre-Combine Mock

Glad to see we're all in agreement that cornerback is a position of need for the Saints in 2014.

Matthew Fairburn of SB Nation's Mocking the Draft released his pre-Combine mock draft yesterday. He's got the Saints taking cornerback Kyle Fuller with the 27th pick.

Here's his analysis:

27. New Orleans Saints - Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

Fuller in the first round is one of the stranger turns this mock draft has taken. But the Saints have shown in the past that they're willing to find the guy they like and take him. Fuller had a rocky final season at Virginia Tech, but when he's healthy he's a first-round pick. Corey White is better in the slot and Jabari Greer is getting up there.

First of all, we've got to deduct points from Matthew's score right off the bat because he doesn't realize Jabari Greer has already been released. But I do like the fact that he went with cornerback; we're in complete agreement there. Unless the Saints address that need in free agency of course. The player, however, might be a reach. I don't know. It's too early to be talking about this seriously.

What do you guys think?
