There are a lot of perks that come with being the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, which Kansas City Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher knows quite well.
In addition to the insane contract that comes with being the first pick, endorsements quickly follow, making your bank account look like it could rival Scrooge McDuck’s vault of gold coins.
Another perk of being the number one overall pick is the attention you get from members of the organization. From the general manager to the head coach, you’re often treated with kid gloves compared to players fighting for a roster spot. Oh, and don’t forget the free tickling sessions like Fisher received last night during the Chiefs Week 11 loss to the Denver Broncos.
Okay – okay – it technically wasn’t a free tickle session. Fisher left the game with an arm injury and a member of the Chiefs medical staff (or the actual team doctor) was giving Fisher what looked to be a quick test for a stinger.
That doesn’t make it any less amusing though.
