Fisher is an athletic tackle who plays tough — something the Chiefs staff especially liked and tipped the balance away from Luke Joeckel as the no. 1 pick. A hard worker who’s improved his technique tremendously over the past several seasons, Fisher handles speed rushers well and is a powerful run-blocker. With Kansas City he’ll slot in at right tackle immediately, while disgruntled tackle Branden Albert will start on the blind side, barring a trade (which has been discussed with Miami).
His time at Central Michigan didn’t see many of the nation’s best pass-rushers, so some scouts wonder about his true ability as translated to the NFL. He needs to get stronger to play in the NFL, but he’s got the frame to put on muscle.
