Being a senior NFL prospect does have some perks.
NEW YORK (AP) — The updated National Football League injury report, as provided by the league:
Forget the playoffs. There's a highly competitive race going on at the bottom of the NFL standings that could have as much impact on the franchises involved as winning a Super Bowl can have for the contenders.
Marcus Cooper may be the embodiment of the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs.
The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to terms with No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher on Friday, ensuring that the big right tackle out of Central Michigan will be in training camp with plenty of time to prepare for the season.
Eric Fisher started the long drive from his family's home in Michigan to join the Kansas City Chiefs in training camp a couple of days ago. The only problem: He hadn't signed a contract.
The Kansas City Chiefs have signed No. 1 overall pick Eric Fisher, ensuring that the big right tackle out of Central Michigan will be in training camp with plenty of time to prepare for the season.
The Mid-American Conference will have a hard time topping the last 12 months, when Northern Illinois made it to the Orange Bowl and Central Michigan's Eric Fisher was the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft.
No NFL mock draft mentioned the outgoing, mop-haired offensive lineman from Central Michigan. No trip to the pre-draft combine or big-name agent or endorsement deal. A YouTube video of one of his workouts garnered 373 hits. So, Repovz watched the draft's final day at Buffalo Wild Wings and hoped, but didn't expect, to hear his name mentioned.
Minnesota went all in with three first-round picks.
Short on glam, slim on glitter and no sign of Manti Te'o, the NFL draft was still a solid B-plus.
More than 2 1/2 tons of linemen, five trades, one quarterback and no Manti Te'o.
It was sometime after the Senior Bowl when Eric Fisher realized he was going to be picked early in the NFL draft. He might even have a shot at being the first player selected.
This year's NFL draft is heavy on size and light on glamour.
"It's called a three-piece, right?" Yes, Luke Joeckel, and by the way, nice blue checks with that vested suit at the NFL draft.
"I just wanted to get the deal done," he said.
"I'm happy to be here and happy to get to work," said Fisher, who arrived at training camp in time to pass a conditioning test and participate in the first full-squad workout.
