The Kansas City Chiefs will resume their “Scouting Vacation” this week, as they prepare for the 2013 NFL Draft. We don’t know all the scheduled stops on this leg of the tour but a little nugget from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Fee Press tells us that at least one of those stops will be Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, where they will work out top offensive tackle prospect, Eric Fisher.
Birkett mentions as much in a recent article talking about the Chiefs’ recent visit with Oklahoma OT, Lane Johnson.
The Kansas City Chiefs, owners of the first pick, held a private workout Friday morning with Joeckel and Friday afternoon with Johnson. They’ll be in Mt. Pleasant to run Fisher through drills next week.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey were among the contingent watching Johnson in Norman.
Johnson, who started 12 games at right tackle in 2011 and 11 last year at left tackle for the Sooners, said he feels “right at home now” at offensive tackle.
“I’ve kind of grown into my body,” he said. “I’ve kind of got the mental aspect of, ‘I’m going to be like this for the next 10 or 12 years.’ It fits perfect now.”
Once the Chiefs work out Fisher, they will have worked out all three of the top offensive tackles in the 2013 class. KC made stops in Texas and Oklahoma last week to work out Johnson and Texas A&M tackle, Luke Joeckel.
Fisher is widely considered neck and neck with Joeckel to be the first tackle take in 2013, with Johnson trailing close behind.
What do you think, Addicts? Of the three tackles, do you have a favorite?
