When I was a staff writer at NFL Spin Zone (website for FanSided), I was given the opportunity to tank the Top Five offensive guards/tackles that were available in the draft. Which was then followed by my very own mock draft.
I have Eric Fisher at the top of the list when it came to tackles but I didn’t have him going number one overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. I actually have Texas A&M’s tackle Luke Joeckel in the number one spot with Eric Fisher going to the Jacksonville Jaguars at the number two.
Now it’s obvious that these two teams are on a totally different level but both Fisher and Joeckel had a bit of a rough welcome into the National Football League. Joeckel was lost for the year back in October because of a fractured ankle that he suffered in a loss against the St. Louis Rams.
Kansas City Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher has been ruled out of his first career playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a groin injury.
#Chiefs list OT Eric Fisher (groin ) as Out for Saturday: OLB Tamba Hali (knee) is questionable. all others probable

Offensive tackle Donald Stephenson will get the start in place of Fisher. He’s switched between left and right tackle before.
