With draft day (May 8 ) rapidly approaching, we'll whet your appetite with a daily factoid, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information. We'll keep it New York Jets-centric, sticking to team needs, possible selections, trends, etc.

Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller is a solid, all-around cornerback prospect whose stock has increased to the point where he could be picked in the top 20 or 25. The Jets, picking 18th, scheduled a pre-draft visit with Fuller, who played blanket coverage in the ACC. You might say he outplayed the top corners in the draft.

Opponents completed only six of 22 passes (27.3 percent) when targeting Fuller, the lowest completion percentage allowed by any defensive back from a BCS automatic-qualifying school (minimum: 20 targets), according to STATS LLC. His senior season ended prematurely because of hernia surgery last November.

The Jets are in the market for a young cornerback.
