Fisher not among top rookies so far

September, 12, 2013
ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has an interesting article rating the top 20 rookies Insider from last week's games. Kansas City Chiefs tackle Eric Fisher is not among them.

Fisher looked like the weak link of the offensive line in the win over Jacksonville, though he certainly didn't have a horrible game. He was pushed back on a bull rush by Jason Babin on one of Alex Smith's first pass attempts, but settled down and handled himself decently from that point forward.

Still, Chiefs fans might like to think the first overall pick in the draft is at least going to be among the top 20 rookies, and when it's all said and done Fisher might get there. It's just one game.

Four offensive linemen made Kiper's list: Chicago's Jordan Mills, San Diego's D.J. Fluker, Detroit's Larry Warford and Philadelphia's Lane Johnson. It's interesting to note that the second pick in the draft, Jacksonville tackle Luke Joeckel, also didn't make the list.
