With The First Pick Of The 2013 NFL Draft The Kansas City Chiefs Take

 

 

 

With the first pick of the 2013 NFL Draft the Kansas City Chiefs select Eric Fisher a 6’7” LT weighing 306 lbs. Eric Fisher was a third team All-MAC selection in 2011 as the starter at LT, however missing the last two games of the season with knee injury kept him from first honors. Fisher came back strong in 2012 and went on to receive first team All-MAC honors after starting all 12 games at left tackle for Central Michigan.

Last season Fisher was the anchor in a Central Michigan offensive line that averaged 6.2 yards per play, good for second best in the MAC. The group led by Fisher also only allowed 14 sacks all season which was fourth best in the conference.

Eric Fisher was neck and neck with Luke Joeckel for being rated as this draft class’ top LT. Most analysts however had stated that Fisher had the higher upside and would likely go in the top 15. Days leading to the draft his stock kept rising and rising with the Kansas City Chiefs stating they really liked Fisher, and having many analyst expect him to go first overall in the 2013 draft.

Scouts were floored by Fisher’s athleticism for a man with such natural big frame for playing the left tackle position. He has great speed as his 4.44 forty time will show , and great agility for a big man.

As with many high ranking offensive lineman, Eric Fisher seems to be a safe pick. A guy with tremendous upside, and often compared to Joe Staley, Fisher is a guy you can plug into your LT position and not have to worry about the most important position on your offensive line for a decade or longer. He will be a great asset in protecting Chiefs new QB Alex Smith.
