Kansas City takes Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher with #1 pick
NEW YORK (AP) -- The gurus leading up to the NFL draft insisted this year's college crop was heavy on size and light on glamour. And those losing teams with the top picks seemed to agree by taking offensive tackles with three of the top four picks.
The Kansas City Chiefs stayed with that theme by selecting Eric Fisher, an offensive tackle out of Central Michigan, with the No. 1 overall pick. He's just the third offensive tackle chosen No. 1 overall since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Fisher called it a "dream come true" to play for the Chiefs, who are looking to rebuild under new coach Andy Reid, the former coach of the Eagles. Fisher became the first player from the Mid-American Conference taken at No. 1.
