Fuller Taken by Bears

Posted:
   LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have drafted Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller with 14th overall pick in the NFL draft, hoping to boost a defense that ranked among the league's worst last season.
   The Bears had needs all over their defense after going 8-8 and missing the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons.
   They let Julius Peppers go and signed Jared Allen from Minnesota. Many analysts thought Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald would be the best option for the Bears, but the St. Louis Rams grabbed him at No. 13.
   Chicago then went for help in the secondary Thursday night.
   The 6-foot, 190-pound Fuller missed time last season because of a sports hernia but was productive when he played. He broke up 10 passes and made two interceptions.
