What does SB Nation's Chiefs blog have to say about the Eric Fisher pick?

The Kansas City Chiefs have selected Central Michigan OT Eric Fisher with the first overall pick. Let's take a look at what SB Nation's Chiefs blog Arrowhead Pride has to say about the pick.

Here's Joel Thorman's take:

Where Fisher fits on the offensive line next season depends on the Branden Albert trade rumors circulating. If Albert is not in Kansas City then Fisher is your left tackle. If the Chiefs don't trade Albert, who says he he is a left and not a right tackle, then there will be an interesting situation brewing.

The debate with the No. 1 pick was between Fisher and Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel. For the majority of the time, Joeckel seemed like the favorite. That is until several reports, including Mike Mayock's mock draft and then Jay Glazer, began to connect Fisher to the Chiefs. By Thursday afternoon it became apparent that Fisher had a very good chance of being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Chiefs did entertain trade offers for the pick but ultimately decided to keep it, making Fisher their new offensive tackle.
