Chiefs’ Fisher, Jags’ Joeckel Ready for Debuts
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs had offensive tackle Eric Fisher rated No. 1 on their draft board. The Jacksonville Jaguars had fellow offensive tackle Luke Joeckel rated first on their board.
Both of the teams got what they wanted in April.
Now, the Chiefs and Jaguars will get a good idea who might have fared best when Fisher and Joeckel make their NFL debuts. Kansas City visits Jacksonville on Sunday with both players set to start at right tackle for teams coming off 2-14 seasons.
Fisher and Joeckel have both been slowed by injuries during the preseason, but they’ve showed flashes when they’ve been on the field. Chiefs coach Andy Reid and Jaguars coach Gus Bradley both said Wednesday that they’re happy with the way things worked out.
