The first pick of the Andy Reid era with the Chiefs is in, and it’s Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher.
The Chiefs passed over fellow tackle Luke Joeckel, and instead went with the lesser-known MAC player who they hope will shore up an offensive line for players like RB Jammal Charles.

Fisher has drawn comparisons to 49ers Pro Bowl tackle Joe Staley, also a product of Central Michigan. There are some similarities. He’s tall, has long arms but is thick through the waist with room to add weight. Fisher is a natural athlete and quick off the snap. Scouts love his bend and ability to make difficult blocks. He has good balance in pass protection and can drive block in the run game. Many consider Fisher more powerful than Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel, his rival as the top tackle prospect in the draft. He played left tackle throughout most of college but has the skill set to play on the right side.
