Eric Fisher’s draft stock continues to rise — so much so that the Central Michigan offensive tackle may be close to pushing Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel for the top spot at that position. Fisher had a strong Senior Bowl week, and he will participate in the scouting combine starting on Feb. 20. To prep its readers for that combine, the Journal Sentinel has been running a feature called “Combine Countdown”, and Fisher was in the spotlight recently. And Central Michigan offensive coordinator Mike Cummings had an emphatic of his former lineman: “I don’t know how to say this because you have to write something,” said Central Michigan offensive coordinator Mike Cummings, “but basically he wants to kick your (expletive) and he’s going to figure out how. That’s what he wants to do. He’s going to beat you and he’s going to find a way how. If you’re moving your left toe a little bit, he’s going to find a way.” Sounds like the type of mean streak that NFL teams covet, especially at the all-important left tackle spot. Fisher was ranked No. 8 on Mel Kiper’s latest ESPN.com Big Board, while yours truly had him No. 5 over on SI.com.
