2013 NFL Draft: Eric Fisher Has A Better Deep Ball Than Matt Cassel

Before the Kansas City Chiefs traded multiple high draft picks for former San Francisco 49ers Qb Alex Smith, many Chiefs fans were hoping the team would select a QB in the 2013 NFL Draft.

That could still happen. If the Chiefs take Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick.

In this Youtube video pointed out to me by one of the guys over at FanSided.com, Fisher throws a 55-yard bomb. This play happened while Fisher was in high school. It was his junior year and the play happened on a fake punt, in the MHSAA playoffs, against Birmingham Brother Rice .

Fisher drops the ball down as if he is getting ready to execute a punt. The he suddenly stands back up and lets the ball rip.

Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs haven’t seen a pass like this since Trent Green and Dick Vermeil were in town. I know everyone thinks the Chiefs are sure to select Luke Joeckel on Thursday but I think this video could give Fisher the edge. I may just have to send this to Chiefs GM John Dorsey. After all, having Fisher on the roster as an emergency QB could allow the Chiefs to have one more roster spot on game days.

I am not sure Fisher would be very mobile in the pocket but I bet he’d be hard to bring down.

What do you think, Addicts? Who has the better deep ball? Fisher or Matt Cassel?

    Ooh, our new double secret emergency QB. I love it!

  • Chief Hokie

    But who will block for him?

  • Stacy D. Smith

    He doesn’t block as well though. Cassel blocked this team from contending for four straight years.

    • Chris McNown

      That is CLASSIC!

      Hahaha! It used to drive me crazy when they said he was pussy. Came back from the appendectomy early, got sacked more than any QB in the league in 2009 behind our disentergrating OL and was throwing blocks on multiple occasions. He may been an average at best QB but the guy was tough as nails, never quit trying and never complained about anything.

        You missed the point of that joke worse than Matt Cassel would miss a wide open McCluster

        • KCMikeG

          Hahahahaha! No I clearly got it and your “joke” too. I laughed but it doesn’t change my comment about his being a tough guy.

  • Jim Harper

    I just watched a piece on the NFL network about Fisher and came away impressed with him. He comes across as a guy I would least likely to piss off. Fisher seems to have a natural mean streak about him that I don’t get from Joeckel. I like my tackles to be real mean.

  • Tony

    It was a pretty pass, however it was actually only in the air for 40 yards! So yes he has a much stronger arm than Cassel!

  • ArrowFan

    I just like Fisher more than Jockel. Fisher looks like a man while Jockel looks like he is still in Jr. High.

  • Danny W

    Yeah he can throw better than Cassel but what about putting his hat on backwards?
