Chiefs Select OT Fisher With No. 1 pick
Kansas City Chiefs took offensive tackle Eric Fisher of Central Michigan to begin the NFL draft Thursday night, then Jacksonville went for Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel.
It was the first time since the 1970 merger of the NFL and AFL that offensive tackles went 1-2.
Fisher became the first player from the Mid-American Conference taken to open the draft. He is the third offensive tackle picked No. 1 overall since the merger, joining Orlando Pace in 1997 and Jake Long five years ago.
