Report: Chiefs will select CMU's Eric Fisher
What it does have (or has had), however, is plenty of suspense even with the first overall pick.
It appears that the suspense is over for the first pick as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk has tweeted that the Chiefs will select Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher.
Over the past several days, there has been increasing speculation that it would be Fisher, not Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, as the first overall pick.
Draft insider Tony Pauline tweeted over the weekend that some of the Chiefs position coaches preferred Fisher. Last night, Jason La Canfora tweeted that he expected the pick to be Fisher and Jay Glazer did the same this morning.
Although he may have faced inferior competition in college (at least compared to Joeckel's competition in the SEC), Fisher dominated in drills at the Senior Bowl against excellent pass-rushers like Datone Jones, Alex Okafor, etc.
Fisher, who will become the conference's first No. 1 pick, has the prototypical size, length and athleticism in a left tackle prospect. Before Fisher, the highest player ever drafted from the MAC was Marshall's Byron Leftwich, seventh overall by the Jaguars in 2003.
[Update: It's official. Fisher was the first pick; the Jaguars are on the clock.]
