With the 1st pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected offensive tackle Eric Fisher from the University of Central Michigan.
Fisher (6’7″, 306) wowed scouts with his athleticism in pre-draft workouts, though his play on the field was nothing to scoff at. Fisher was one of the nation’s best at his position, earning third-team All-America honors from the Associated Press.
There is some concern in regards to Fisher’s strength, mainly because he didn’t often face NFL-caliber pass-rushers while at Central Michigan. Fisher struggled in Senior Bowl practices against big, physical bull-rushers who could get in his pads and push him back, but clearly the Chiefs didn’t see that as a major concern.
