Fisher is getting raps from the likes of Mayock and co and is on the rise. Some say he could be at least as good as Luke Joeckel.
A lot depends on the direction Andy Reid and the Chiefs go at QB. If they sign a veteran they may not look at drafting Smith and taking Joeckel #1 overall.
For me, I think #3 overall is too high for Fisher. So, again the trade down option and still get the guy you want is the way to go.
That said, I still do not think LT is the main need at #3. The Raiders need a RT and that can be had later. Sure, Veldheer did not have a great 2012 but he did get better as the year wore on and he got used to the ZBS. Still, he will be much better in a power scheme in 2013.
THE Raiders 2014 Draft Class:
Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State
Gabe Jackson, G, Mississippi State
Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech
Keith McGill, DB, Utah
Travis Carrie, CB, Ohio
