Found May 10, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Offensive tackle Eric Fisher and quarterback Tyler Bray had vastly different experiences during the NFL draft, yet both of them ended up with the Kansas City Chiefs. Both have a lot of people watching them, too. Fisher was the first overall pick out of Central Michigan, and will be expected to compete for a starting job on the offensive line, though it's unclear whether it'll be on the right or left side. That could depend on what happens with Branden Albert. Bray left Tennessee early but wasn't chosen in the draft, and signed with the Chiefs as a free agent. He's expected to compete for a roster spot, and maybe even push to be the backup QB. The Chiefs opened a rookie minicamp Friday. It runs through the weekend.
