NEW YORK -- The Kansas City Chiefs made history Thursday with the selection of offensive lineman Eric Fisher.

The 6'7", 306 pound Central Michigan product became the franchise's first overall No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.  Fisher anchored a Chippewas line that allowed just 14 sacks last season.  The offensive tackle stole the headlines during drills at the Senior Game in Mobile in January.  He met with new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid during that week.  He's only the fourth offensive tackle to go No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft.

Fisher is not the only No. 1 overall selection in Kansas City history.  The Chiefs chose defensive tackle Buck Buchanan first overall in the 1963 AFL Draft.
