The Bears announced Tuesday that cornerback Kyle Fuller has agreed to terms on a four-year deal with a fifth-year option. Chicago has now agreed to terms with seven of its eight draft picks. Third-round pick Will Sutton is the only unsigned rookie.

Financial terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed on Fuller, the 14th overall pick in Thursday's draft.

Last year's No. 14 pick, Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Star Lotulelei, signed a four-year, $9.605 million contract that included a $5.365 million signing bonus. Expect Fuller to receive a similar pact.

UPDATE: The Bears have reached an agreement with third-round pick Will Sutton, the team announced Thursday. Chicago now has all eight of its draft picks under contract, the first team in the league to do so.
