Fisher Picked by Bengals

Oregon offensive tackle Jake Fisher was selected by Cincinnati in the second round with the 53 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Fisher, 6-6, 300 was the leader of the offensive line during the 2014 season.

After suffering an injury during the Wyoming game on Sept. 13, 2014, Fisher missed the next two games and the Ducks struggled. First Oregon squeeked by Washington State, 38-31 on Sept. 20 in Pullman, then lost the following week to Arizona, 31-24 at Autzen Stadium in Eugene.

However, when Fisher returned to the line-up the week after the Arizona game, the Ducks played with a fierce determination that reflected Fisher's attitude on the field and Oregon beat UCLA handly 42-30.

From that point on there was no question as to Fisher's importance to Oregon's success. He was honored by the Pac-12 Conference by being named to the All-Pac-12 Conference first team following the conclusion of the season.

Fisher was a three-year starter and four-year letterman and did not use a redshirt year. Fisher was a 4-star offensive lineman out of high school.

Analysis

Fisher was one of the big surprises at the Combine in Indianapolis. He tested exceptionally well and looked good in drills. At 6-foot-6, 306-pounds he ran a blazing forty of 5.01. He backed that up with a 32.5-inch vertical jump and 4.33 20-yard shuttle. Fisher plays with good leverage in the run game and shows nimble feet and balance when mirroring pass rushers. He’s quick off the ball and knows how to use his hands. Fisher played both tackle positions at Oregon.
