Coming off a stellar rookie season, Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller is already taking a veteran's approach to the game.
"You definitely feel more comfortable as far as just knowing how things are done," Fuller said, via the Bears' official website. "Knowing what to expect out there just comes with having a year under your belt."
Fuller, a first-round selection in last year's draft (14th-overall pick), played all 16 games last year and started 14 of them. He quickly developed into one of the league's best young corners, intercepting four passes and forcing three fumbles.
The Bears are counting on Fuller to stay healthy and have the same impact in 2015. In order to make that happen, the 23-year-old is taking close care of his body during training camp.
"You know what you have to do to go out there and perform at your best," Fuller said, per ChicagoBears.com. "You have to make sure you're eating right, drinking water, stretching; all the stuff you have to do to get your body ready to go every day."
With the Bears transitioning from a 4-3 to a 3-4 under new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, Fuller is emerging as one of the leaders in the secondary.
