Since walking on stage as the No. 1 selection in last year’s draft, Eric Fisher has become a magnet for criticism—and a lot of it has been justified.

Now that he has a year of experience under his belt—and reverted back to his natural position—the left tackle is slowly but surely finding his feet, though.

PFF’s Sam Monson adds:

"Don’t look now, but Eric Fisher has been playing OK for quite a while now. OK it hasn’t been any better than OK, but we’re now looking at a run of seven games without any really disastrous outings with six successive positive run-blocking games. He’s still some way from the franchise left tackle everybody looks for at the top of the draft, but he’s at least edging back from the bust label."

Is he Joe Staley? No, and he may never be. But considering Fisher, up until last week, was lining up beside Mike McGlynn, the above feats were no small tasks.
