ESPN's Todd McShay released a new 2013 NFL Mock Draft on Wednesday, and in it he became the latest mock drafter to project an offensive tackle to the Buffalo Bills. This time around, Central Michigan's Eric Fisher was the No. 8 overall pick.
Writes McShay: "If Fisher falls to No. 8, the Bills shouldn’t think twice. He becomes the long-term answer at left tackle, and Cordy Glenn moves to right tackle after a strong rookie season."
This past weekend, Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com posited the same scenario (though his first-round pick for the Bills was Oklahoma's Lane Johnson): draft a tackle and move Glenn to the right side, where Jeremiah wrote that the second-year pro has "perennial All-Pro" potential. The difference between the two mocks, however, is that while Johnson is considered a potential Top 10 pick, Fisher is viewed as a potential No. 1 overall pick.
It would not be the sexiest Round 1 pick, nor would it come close to filling the Bills' biggest positional needs at the moment, but are fans starting to warm to the idea of taking a tackle and having two offensive line bookends with All-Pro potential?
