The Kansas City Chiefs selected LT Eric Fisher with the No. overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
It became clear when the Chiefs traded a couple of high draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers for Alex Smith that KC wasn’t particularly interested in selecting a QB at the top of the draft. Then, when the news broke that the Chiefs were trying to trade LT Branden Albert, it became pretty clear that the team planned to select one of the draft’s top tackles.
And for what seemed like forever, Chiefs fans debated Eric Fisher vs. Luke Joeckel.
The pick didn’t come as a huge surprise so it should be pretty easy to grade. Then again, considering the Branden Albert situation has yet to be decided, it kind of makes it hard to know just exactly what position Fisher will play. Presumably, when you take a guy No. 1 overall, you want him to play his natural position and right away.
Then again, if the Chiefs can’t move Albert and they think Fisher can make an impact right away at RT, they could decide to deploy him there for the 2013 season.
All right, Addicts. It is time to weigh in. Get out your red pen and grade the Chiefs’ first round draft pick, Eric Fisher.
