I hope we draft Eric Fisher at 4

This is based on three assumptions: Kansas City takes Joeckel at 1, neither Jacksonville nor Oakland take Fisher, and we don't trade down. If we draft Fisher, he will be our starting RT from day one and will anchor that side for years. He's the kind of player we need to draft in the top 5. In fact, I believe he's a better prospect than Joeckel. If Chip plans to implement any up-tempo style on offense, he needs an athletic monster like Fisher, who seems like a solid, safe pick. He was considered a first round pick at the end of the season and his stock has sky-rocketed by his outstanding performances in the Senior Bowl and the combine. As mentioned by posters in other threads, based on how we have not aggressively pursued a right tackle in free agency, we can presume that OL will be addressed primarily through the draft. I'm not sold on Milliner as a top 5 pick when the draft has other talented DB's. Even though Kelly knows Dion Jordan well, he concerns me because he has a boom or bust potential, and I don't think we want to take that kind of risk on the 4th overall pick. If either Star Lotulelei or Sharrif Floyd are available, they should be considered. But if I had to choose between a franchise OT vs. franchise DT, I would go with OT. We have 9 picks this year and some people have mentioned that we should trade down to accumulate more picks. I hope we stay at 4 because this is our chance to draft a player who could be a difference-maker for years. Also, he will be a player for whom Chip Kelly will be most remembered, as this is his first (and by all accounts most important) draft. Whoever we choose, I will support that player and the front office's decision. I'm really looking forward to this draft. Just one more month :) IE
