Mock Draft Expert Analysis

  • Carolina Panthers | #25
    The addition of veterans Michael Oher and Jonathan Martin look good on paper, but reinforcements along the offensive line are needed. Fisher, a former tight end with experience at both left and right tackle, has the athleticism and grit to contribute immediately.
  • Indianapolis Colts | #29
    With Gosder Cherilus' future up in the air because of injuries, offensive tackle is a possibility with this pick. Fisher isn't a consensus first round player, but he has intriguing upside in the mold of Colts starting left tackle Anthony Castonzo.
  • Denver Broncos | #28
    An athletic tackle who could step in on the right side in their scheme. They need to get better at that spot, and he would be an immediate starter.
  • Denver Broncos | #28
    The Broncos need a smart, versatile, athletic lineman who can come in and run Gary Kubiak's scheme. Fisher checks every box.
 

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Has broad shoulders, long arms and quick, strong hands to latch onto opponents. He's strong enough to catch and control defenders and does a nice job of turning them away from the action. He plays with good knee bend and on the balls of his feet, helping him to anchor and mirror effectively. Fisher is a very effective double-team blocker, releasing from one target to hit another. He is a selfless, passionate and versatile player whose blue-collar style was appreciated by the coaching staff.

WEAKNESSES: More of a technician than an elite athlete and will struggle to handle the speed rushers of the NFL. He does not possess top-notch initial quickness and fluidity in his kick-slide. Struggles to balance and recover if beaten off the ball. Shows the knee-bend to anchor, but can get himself in trouble when his feet stop moving and as he tires and loses the leverage battle.

Player Overview

Fisher entered his senior season as the Ducks' starting right tackle for the third consecutive season. A season-ending injury to the Ducks' left tackle Tyler Johnstone, however, pushed Fisher to the left side. Despite pain of his own, he performed quite well and opened the eyes of NFL scouts.

Fisher's versatility and selflessness stood out to evaluators. Fisher is a reliable blocker with good size, athleticism and strength. He's not an elite athlete, however, and has aided by the escapability of his quarterback Marcus Mariota and the general speed on Oregon's offense. He projects back to the right side at the next level.

05/05/2015 - The Bengals used their first two picks of the draft to take offensive tackles Cedric Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher. It's the sixth time in franchise history they've selected players at the same position with their top two picks. They chose defensive tackles Mike Reid and Ron Carpenter in 1970, defensive tackles Eddie Edwards and Wilson Whitley in 1977, wide receivers David Verser and Cris Collinsworth in 1981, linebackers Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons in 1998 and linebackers David Pollak and Odell Thurman in 2005. Head coach Marvin Lewis isn't worried about bruising any egos in that or any other position room. "They're pros," said Lewis. "They want to have the best team we can have in the National Football League so we've got to add good players to it all of the time. They understand that. They went through the process when they were picked. They know how that works. We want to have the best football team. They're out front. They can continue to prove that." - The Sports Xchange
