'Alex Smith will appreciate this': Breaking down Eric Fisher in 4 plays

Arrowhead Pride's Matt Verderame breaks down the reasoning behind the Eric Fisher, using four players from his time at Central Michigan to show where he can excel with the KC Chiefs.

If you've been absent since the Chiefs last game, Matt Verderame has a solid breakdown on not only why Eric Fisher was the Chiefs No. 1 pick but where (specifically) he can help.

  • How well Fisher can run block
  • Getting out to the second level
  • Polished pass blocker
  • Agility

Matt mentions Fisher picking up a stunt in one play -- this article has a nice breakdown on what defenses are doing to confuse players like Fisher.

Blocking along the offensive line isn't as fun to break down as, say, a receiver or a quarterback. But it's still important!
