Eric Fisher SpeakerEric Fisher of Central Michigan is the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the highest player ever selected from the MAC and a surprise after months of speculation had Luke Joeckel as the likely first pick. Fisher was listed as the 10th-best prospect overall and No. 2 offensive tackle in draft rankings by SB Nation’s Dan Kadar.

The Chiefs have been on the clock since the final whistle of the 2012 season, but their selection didn’t become clear until the final hours before the draft. At first, it seemed as if they’d go with a quarterback, considering their quarterbacks for a 2-14 season were Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel. But common wisdom said that there was no clear-cut franchise quarterback in the draft, and when the team traded for Alex Smith, a former No. 1 pick himself, quarterback was no longer a need.

Fisher made 34 starts along the offensive line in his time at Central Michigan, but didn’t truly blossom into an elite talent until his senior year. His only accolade prior to last season was a third-team All-MAC selection as a junior. In 2012, Fisher was named first-team All-MAC as well as third-team AP All-American. Standing taller than 6’7 and weighing more than 300 pounds puts Fisher at a prototypical size for a tackle in the NFL, and that played a big part in his first-round selection.
