Kyle Fuller, Cornerback, Chicago Bears

It is no secret the Packers need help in the secondary. Even worse is the fact that former secondary standouts like Micah Hyde and Casey Hayward have gone elsewhere and thrived.

Kyle Fuller would be a great addition to a young secondary. His 6-foot frame would add much-needed height to an overall short secondary.

He is not much of a ball hawk, but his overall coverage skills are very impressive. Fuller also has extraordinary speed for someone his size, which would also help a secondary that lacks in speed.

He will not be that expensive either, with a salary cap hit of just $2.4 million in 2017. Fuller is not one of the top corners in this year’s free agency, as you will find out later, but he definitely has the skills and will be fairly inexpensive when the market opens up.

The last time the Packers signed someone in free agency from Chicago was Julius Peppers. That decision ended up a pretty good one as he was able to make an impact before heading back to Carolina.

The combination of rare size and speed, his low price tag, playing a position the Packers need help with, and a new GM who will be more aggressive in free agency makes Fuller the most likely signing out of anyone on this list.
