Oregon T Jake Fisher has made a case at the combine that he can play left tackle in the NFL, NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said.
Regular readers know we've been higher on Fisher than consensus opinion for some time. Oregon's high-flying offense sputtered when he missed two games this season with a leg injury, causing the entire offensive line to crater. When Fisher returned, the Ducks returned to their high-octane ways (the Ducks surrendered 12 sacks in the two games Fisher missed, and 19 in the 13 games in which he played). Fisher (6-foot-6 1/8, 306 pounds, with a 82-inch wingspan) clocked a 5.01 forty, a good 1.75 second 10-yard split, a sensational 4.33 second 20-yard shuttle, and a super 32.5 inch vertical. Heading into the event, many thought Fisher would have to move to RT, but Mayock said, "He's making a case for, 'I'm a left tackle.'" NFL Network analyst Shaun O'Hara, a former NFL OL, said: "He looked really polished."
