The Kansas City Chiefs selected offensive tackle Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Chiefs are confident that he was the right pick and soon Fisher will get the opportunity to prove his worth to the team in training camp.
After working hard in the offseason and keeping his body in shape, Fisher is ready to go to work in camp. He is certainly ready to put on pads and get in the trenches with his fellow linemen in order to build a chemistry that will become essential to succeeding on game day.
“I’m playing with an awesome group of guys,“ Fisher said, according to KCChiefs.com. “They’re taking me in well, trying to help me as much as possible. It’s a new system for them too, so, we’re kind of helping each other sometimes. Their experience in playing on Sundays already, it’s great to learn from them.”
The Chiefs are hoping Fisher will be able to embrace his role as the right tackle. They also hope the transition will not take anything away from his development at the professional level. Even though he was drafted to be the starting left tackle, Kansas City is confident that he is talented enough to learn the position with ease.
The fact that he is blessed with an outstanding head coach and offensive line coach means he has a great opportunity to absorb as much knowledge as possible about the game. Andy Reid has been around football for a long time and any player would be lucky to play for him. Meanwhile, Andy Heck is someone with great experience who can relay it well to the players.
