Another mock draft: If Fisher goes No. 1, how does that change things?

April 25, 2013

Speculation has intensified in the past 24 hours that the Chiefs will take Eric Fisher over Luke Joeckel with the top overall pick. Which left tackle will the Chiefs select? Some draft observers have called it a virtual coin-flip of a choice practically from the start.

For our third and final mock-draft take (here’s the first and second), Fisher becomes the top selection and Joeckel drops to third. The Jets now go with Dee Milliner ninth and Tavon Austin 13th. Xavier Rhodes drops a bit. Sheldon Richardson moves up to the Rams at 16th. Eddie Lacy goes to the Bengals at 21st instead of to the Rams at 22nd. St. Louis now goes with Tyler Eifert at No. 22. And this all will become even more jumbled once trades start happening on the clock.
