Lowdown: Fisher was lightly recruited out of Stoney Creek High School in Michigan, where he didn't play on the offensive line until he was a senior. In fact, he never weighed more than 238 pounds at any point during high school. At Central Michigan, he lined up at right tackle and right guard before moving to left tackle full time as a junior. He made the All-Mid-American Conference first team in 2012.
Fisher is a great athlete with ideal height for the position. He can add weight to his frame without sacrificing athleticism. A former basketball player, he's got quick feet to stay with defensive ends, and can get to the second level to make blocks for running backs.
Needs to add strength in both the upper and lower body. Can sometimes be slow to get his hands up off the snap. Competing with Luke Joeckel to be not just the first left tackle taken, but possibly the first overall player by the Kansas City Chiefs.
They said it: "He's got the frame that he could put on 20 pounds naturally without losing any of his quickness or footwork. I think what you're looking for, first and foremost, in a left tackle is the ability to protect your passer. He looks a little bit to me on tape like Joe Staley. But the more I see of him the more I like him better than Staley when he came out." -- NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock
