Chiefs Select Eric Fisher No. 1 In The 2013 NFL Draft


Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have selected former Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

It was thought that the Chiefs might select Texas A & M LT Luke Joeckel but it appears as though head coach Andy Reid and GM John Doesey prefer the slightly more athletic Fisher. Fisher is the first LT to be taken No. 1 overall in the draft since the Miami Dolphins selected Jake Long.

Here is a scouting report on Fisher from NFL Mocks:

"Fisher has really come on as one of the best offensive tackle prospects in the country coming out in 2013. He is inarguably the top senior offensive tackle, and coming from Central Michigan, he’s gone largely unnoticed by the public eye. That doesn’t mean NFL Draft scouts and analysts have missed him. Fisher’s length and ability to move really well for his size give him the look of a starting left tackle in the NFL for years to come."

We will have more later but for now, what is your reaction to this pick?
