Kansas City Chiefs Takes Tackle Eric Fisher #1 In 2013 NFL Draft :::: #NFL

KC Chiefs - Eric Fisher - 2013 NFL Draft

With the #1 overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher.
New Chiefs coach Andy Reid built his previous team, the Philadelphia Eagles, from the inside out, and plans to do the same in KC.
The #1 overall pick was down to Fisher or Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel.
"Ultimately, Fisher was seen as a player with a higher long-term ceiling because of his impressive athleticism," NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal writes. "Fisher represents the key piece to the Chiefs' dramatic offensive spending spree this offseason. The Chiefs re-signed Dwayne Bowe to a huge contract, added Alex Smith at quarterback and brought in Anthony Fasano at tight end. Along with running back Jamaal Charles, this is an offense poised to compete right away."
Just three months ago, Fisher was not believed to be a top 10 pick. However, in January at the Senior Bowl, he proved he could shut down the best of the best defensive linemen. That week, coupled with his film, sold himself.
