Kansas City Chiefs Select Eric Fisher, Making Him Highest-Drafted MAC Player Ever

Eric FisherThe wait is over and the pick is in.

With the first overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Kansas City Chiefs selected Central Michigan left tackle Eric Fisher.

Fisher is a behemoth of a lineman at 6-foot-7 and 306 pounds. He should improve the Chiefs immediately, manning the left side of the offensive line and making franchise player Branden Albert more readily available on the trading block.

Fisher becomes the first-ever Mid-American Conference (MAC) player to be drafted first overall, in turn making him the highest-drafted player from both the school and the conference.

Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel, the other potential player at No. 1, went second overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars, which is no great surprise.
