The Kansas City Chiefs made Central Michigan Eric Fisher the fourth offensive lineman ever to be selected No. 1 overall when the team selected him in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fisher made the interview rounds after being selected and had a lot to say about the experience of being the top pick. He started by talking about the phone call from Chiefs GM John Dorsey, telling him he was about to be a Chief.
“It’s one phone call I will never forget. I talked to all the coaches; I talked to Head Coach (Andy) Reid, John Dorsey, Coach (Andy) Heck and it was almost surreal that that phone call was happening that I was the No. 1 pick. It’s what I’ve worked towards for so long, I’m really looking forward to getting to Kansas City, getting back to work and playing some more football.”
Fisher also mentioned that he will play wherever the Chiefs want him. Oh yeah and he wants to win the Super Bowl.
“I have no idea. I just want to play football. I want to play; I want to help the team win a Super Bowl… wherever I can help the team is where they’ll put me and I’ll be fine with that. I’m sure a lot of people will be able to help me learn a lot more about the game – technique and really just to improve everything about the game. Wherever they need me I’m willing to play.”
Not every Chiefs fan may have liked the Eric Fisher pick but I think we can all get behind some good old fashioned Super Bowl talk.
