NFL draft grades out as a B-plus

Chiefs select Fisher No. 1, then beef, brawn and bulk follows
Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday night in New York. The Kansas City Chiefs broke the four-year quarterback trend by taking the 6-7, 306-pound lineman first overall. “This is so surreal,” he said.
Only twice since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 has an offensive tackle been drafted first overall. The Kansas City Chiefs made it three times when they selected Eric Fisher of Central Michigan No. 1 at the NFL Draft on Thursday night in New York.
Dimunitive wide receiver Tavon Austin from West Virginia was the first skill position player taken in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday night in New York, and the St. Louis Rams traded up to take him at No. 8 overall.
