With the NFL Combine almost in the rear view mirror, draft experts and scouts have a bit more complete picture of what this year’s class can bring to the next level. After taking into account the performances in Indianapolis, it’s time for FanSided’s latest look at the first round of April’s draft.
There’s no doubt that Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel stood out at the combine, but there’s one small problem. With rumors flying of the potential Alex Smith trade between the 49ers and Chiefs, Andy Reid may now have his man at quarterback. With that hole filled, the Chiefs would seemingly be poised to take Joeckel, but the Eagles could still end up adding youth to the offensive line with their first pick.
Enter Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher.
Here’s the skinny on Fisher, who some scouts believe is the most complete tackle in the draft.
Chip Kelly needs to address the offensive tackle position and Eric Fisher is just the man for the job. There isn’t as big of a gap in talent between Fisher and Joeckel as many would believe. If the Chiefs decide to go with Joeckel, the Eagles would be perfectly happy adding Fisher.
Here’s Fisher talking with reporters at the combine last week.
