The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Fuller collected 173 tackles, 23.5 tackles for a loss, six interceptions, 21 passes defended and two forced fumbles throughout his four-year college career.

Fuller becomes the seventh member of the Bears 2014 Draft Class to sign with the team. The Bears agreed to terms with safety Brock Vereen and quarterback David Fales on Monday, and defensive tackle Ego Ferguson, running back Ka'Deem Carey, punter Pat O'Donnell and offensive tackle Charles Leno, Jr. on Tuesday.

Defensive tackle Will Sutton is the only Bears draft pick that remains unsigned.
