2013 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles select Eric Fisher

USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia has a number of holes but can fill one with the addition of Fisher along the offensive front.

In the latest edition of SB Nation's NFL mock draft by Dan Kadar, the Philadelphia Eagles bolstered their offensive line with the selection of Central Michigan Chippewas left tackle Eric Fisher with the fourth overall pick.

Fisher is the second-rated tackle on the board for many and the first for some, only behind Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, who is mocked to the Kansas City Chiefs here.

At 6'7 and 305 pounds, Fisher is an animal who has great strength and solid technique. Fisher has the ability to get out into space and wreck the second level of a defense while more than holding his own in the pass game, stonewalling many defensive linemen.

In new head coach Chip Kelly's system, Fisher's mobility could be the perfect fit.

Despite having Jason Peters on the left side, Philadelphia might be hard-pressed to say its set in that spot, considering Peters is coming off a torn Achilles tendon. At right tackle, Todd Herremans is good but certainly upgradable, making Fisher an ideal candidate for the Eagles.
