Here is the sixth grouping in Yahoo! Sports' top 100 player countdown. We're unveiling the top players in groups of 10 each Sunday for 10 weeks.
'Top' doesn't necessarily mean the most pro potential or even the most talent. It's what the player has accomplished and how we think the player will do this season. Production does trump potential.
It remains a long way until the first game on Aug. 30. We're trying to make the long wait bearable.
50. CB Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech
Particulars: 6-0/181, Jr.; Baltimore St. Joseph
Buzz: He is one of the most physical cornerbacks in the country. He started all 14 games for the Hokies last season, and half those starts came at a hybrid nickelback/linebacker spot. But Fuller is at his best at cornerback. He made 65 tackles last season, including 4.5 sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss. He also had two interceptions, seven pass breakups and a forced fumble. The Hokies always seem to have a stud cornerback who contends for All-America honors. This season, that is Fuller.
