2013 NFL Draft Player Prospect Profile: Eric Fisher
One of the best parts about the 2013 NFL Draft is there are plenty of great offensive lineman to choose from and one of the biggest stars that appears to have a bright future is Eric Fisher of Central Michigan.
Don’t let the fact that he went to Central Michigan fool you–Fisher is one of the top offensive tackles in this year’s draft class that should quickly develop into a starter by the time Week 1 rolls around. The fact that Fisher is 6’7″ is the perfect example of how much of a problem he can be to opponents and he should have no trouble when it comes to making the transition to the NFL level.
His hands may be a reason for concern, but that’s nothing Fisher shouldn’t be able to work on now that he’s in the big leagues. Players are always going to have areas in need of improvement and if anything–Fisher should be praised for his ability to be quick on his feet off the snap.
On top of the issue with his hands, Fisher may need to bulk up a bit too now that he’s going to be playing at the NFL level. The potential is certainly there for Fisher and he may not have gone to one of the bigger-named Division I schools, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be successful in the NFL.
If anything, this could end up making him a first-round steal in this year’s draft.
