I think Fisher will be great on the second level and a good position blocker but he's not going to move people out of the way.
If he was planning on staying in the 305 lb. range, I'd agree with you. I'm basing my projection on the fact he's been talking about putting on another 20-25 lbs. though, and I believe if he does that, along with the coaching he'll get in the NFL vs. Central Michigan, he's going to be really good against the run. At the Senior Bowl all the scouts and coaches there agreed they thought he could do that and not lose his speed and quickness due to his size. At any rate, if we're fortunate enough to be able to draft him he'll be a much better run blocker than McNeil ever was, and just as good if not better at protecting the QB, IMO.
