2013 NFL mock draft: Eric Fisher to Chiefs rumors continue building

USA TODAY Sports

SB Nation has released two new 2013 NFL mock drafts and there is a new No. 1 involved. Buzz has been steadily increasing that the Kansas City Chiefs could select Central Michigan's Eric Fisher with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Dan Kadar of Mocking The Draft ranks solidly in the top three of my favorite draftniks. NFL Network's Mike Mayock would be up there, too. Both those guys have Eric Fisher to the Chiefs in their 2013 NFL mock drafts. Kadar had been solidly behind Team Luke Joeckel the past few weeks, consistently mocking him to the Chiefs, but also recognizing that this was a tight race. Apparently that race is tighter than we ever thought. Dan's draft day mock takes a reverse course, and is now mocking Eric Fisher to the Chiefs. (In the other mock, Matthew Fairburn sticks with Luke Joeckel.)

Fisher is gaining some serious buzz as the No. 1 offensive tackle in this class, which means he very well could go to the Chiefs with the top pick. In the last 24 hours, we've seen a surge of folks projecting Fisher to the Chiefs.

Perhaps we should've been listening more closely to the KC Star's Adam Teicher, who has had Fisher-to-KC for weeks (months?) now. After Mayock's mock, the following folks chimed in:

Taking an offensive lineman with the No. 1 overall pick is most certainly not sexy. It's boring. A good pick, perhaps, but still boring. What is not boring is the mystery around the No. 1 pick. When was the last time we had a legit debate about the No. 1 pick on the day of the draft?
