Mel Kiper jumps on Eric Fisher bandwagon
By Bill Williamson
With the NFL draft less than five hours away, the draft speculation has run wild.
The intrigue surrounding whether the Kansas City Chiefs will take Eric Fisher or Luke Joeckel has hit a fever pitch since Wednesday night. And it has affected Mel Kiper.
Kiper offered what was supposed to be his final mock draft Wednesday night. He had the Chiefs taking Joeckel with the No. 1 pick.
However, on Thursday afternoon , Kiper reversed course and went with the player most folks are now giving the Chiefs -- Fisher.
My final Chiefs mock draft was posted earlier and I stuck with Joeckel. Why? He was the guy I went with for weeks, so I stuck with him.
Would I be surprised if the choice is Fisher? No, not all.
