Calling Kyle Fuller underrated may or may not be a stretch, depending on you view him.
Fuller was a second-team All-ACC defensive back as a sophomore in 2011 and is a preseason 2012 first-team All-ACC pick this season.
However, when mentioning the ACC's best defensive backs, Fuller isn't the first name that comes to mind.
N.C. State's David Amerson, who led the NCAA with 13 interceptions in 2011, is regarded as the top corner in the ACC, and perhaps all of college football.
And rightfully so.
But Fuller is often overlooked because of the Hokies' proclivity to put defensive backs in the NFL and Fuller's younger brother, Kendall, a future Hokie, is one of the top-five high school seniors in the Class of 2013.
In previewing the 2012 season, Fuller may be the most important Hokie other than Thomas. If the entire nation doesn't know who Fuller is now—they will in December.
