has stunning quickness to redirect OG blocking down to outside blitzer.
Terrific drive blocker. Of the three big OLT he is the best power blocker.
When he blocks down and lowers his head, he can drive block the smaller
D-Ends 5 to 10-yards backwards until the whistle blows. When he blocks
down, he can power the D-Tackle 7-yards sideways. He can collapse the line
with the D-linemen. When he blocks down on the DT on the double, he wipes
him out with nice violence.
his hands up nicely in kickstep. Focuses on rusher with great intensity.
Punches up and latches onto shirt nicely in kickstep. Stay low and under
D-Ends on the Corner. Shoves D-End inside to OG, and picks up outside
blitzer or twists so effortlessly. He sometimes looks a little chopping in
his kickstep early, but once he settles down he makes shutting down the
edge look so easy.
is so impressive with his hands, feet, and smarts in stunts, twists, and
with outside blitzers. Pops outside of TE on sweeps and locates DBs in
Flat was well as any O-linemen I’ve seen. Shows nice patience in
kickstep. He lets the rusher come to him, and then stones him. He will
sometimes shove up with the double upper cut technique, and add a helmet
butt for impact.
his feet nicely when he has to pass protects to the left, after the O-Line
slants tot he right on play action, to pick up the OLB. He does let the
outside blitz run by him sometimes, when he gets stuck on the D-End. He is
so impressive chipping on the OLB as the TE grabs him, and then flashes
down field to hit the Safety. Great at picking up the D-End stunting to
the outside, after the OLB has twisted into him. Has no trouble with the
smaller quicker guys. I would like to see him against more speed. Very
smooth letting the D-End rush up field and then Sealing him on the edge on
Played ORT and
OLG before he was moved to OLT. Likes to lower his head when he blocks
down on the D-Tackle. Sometimes slides off when he ducks his head too
much. He can be a little too inconsistent early in games. Sometimes drops
hands when rusher gets reluctant. Stops before the whistle sometimes. Level of
competition has to be a concern. A
bit of a catcher sometimes, rather than a puncher in pass protection. I’d
like to see him use him heavy hands more consistently. However, when he
latches on the rush is over. So that is more of a nit than a real
Nice form in
kickslide. Spread his legs real wide, and really shuffles his feet nicely.
At his best when he keeps his hands up. Plays with nice balance in
kickstep and has nice power in his arms when he is dropping back. Does a
good job latching on in pass protection. Does a good job hitting the OLB
when pulling forward. Doesn’t look the smoothest getting out there, but
does a good job grabbing and keeping his feet moving once he does. When
his hands are down, he does a nice job coming up with his hands and
pushing the rusher up. TMIWTMIL
outside to his left to hit the OLB. So far the best thing I’ve seen him
do is pop to the outside around the TE, like a Left Guard Pulling on a
Sweep to his side. He finds the defender, gets low, pops him, and kept his
feet moving. When he gets low, he can crush the D-Tackle. He is very adept
at blocking down on the D-Tackle. He could slide inside to OG easily. Does
a nice job sliding off the D-End on the double, and crushing the ILB
filling the hole. I love how he keeps his feet moving on run plays. He can
block two defenders in the play action pass blocking. Very impressive.
When he gets real low, he can crack the pads when he hits the D-End.
Will head butt in
pass protection as well. He really does have dancer’s feet. However, I
haven’t really seen him tested. I really can’t wait to see him at the
Senior Bowl. See him face some more speed. Slides out wide to the wide-9
rusher smoothly. I like how he tracks down LBs on the second level.
Terrific job hitting DBs when he pulls outside to the left. He really does
a nice job when he locks onto a single defender. He stalks him like coyote
in the woods, and uses his feet to get into position to hit him. Likes to
use the underhand push up technique in Pass Protection. Likes to underhand shove and
head butt, when he has to wait for the rusher to get there. Rusher tend to
lose a lot of incentive when he starts shoving them around.
outsides guy outside, on inside runs. He can make it look unfair. Short
legs and long trunk. Makes it look like he plays a little high sometimes.
But he never seems to be out of balance. Very strong upper and lower
body. I love how he latches onto PR and then just stops.
He does a nice job pulling to the right
as well. His experience at O-Guard is really showing. Came to school at
240, and has gain over 60 pounds of muscle in the past four years. I like
how he always seems to keep his feet moving, even when a D-End gets
leverage and jacks him up. Likes to Seal on third level. Likes to get
perpendicular to the line and keep defenders on the wrong side of the
play. My problem is that I haven’t really seen him challenged. He makes
his kickstep look so easy, but how easy is it going to look when he is
facing elite speed. I can’t what to see him at the Senior Bowl.
Quick sharp feet.
Really does a nice job holding his ground, even when his back get bent
back. That is such an important trait to maintain in those stalemate
situations, where the defender get under your pads a little. He is such a
good athlete. Very light on his feet. He is going to test better than
people think. He has to stop lowering his head on power runs. He can
sometimes lack patience in his kickslide.
stepped onto the field at the Senior Bowl and dominated from snap one.
That is what the small school prospects have to do. He will be a top ten
pick in this draft devoid of skill players. He seems to use his feet to
mirror rushers so effortlessly. It is so impressive. He might be the best
OLT in the Draft. Nice physical blocker as well. Nice hands. He grabs
shirt with one hand and the rusher is done. Very impressive re-anchoring
against power. He
will get too high sometimes. Excellent power step. He just powers forward
on inside moves with great feet and hands. Very smart kids. He went on
Utube and scouted the D-Linemen he was going to play against in the Senior Bowl.
Another thing to like about Fisher, he got jacked by Okafor, and on the
next play he did a nice job getting his hands under his pads, and pushing
him up with that scoop-technique. He can dominate the little speed guys.
When he gets on top on them he can crumble their legs. He has such nice
feet going around the corner. He can dance a full circle around the QB.
Fisher Vs Michigan ST:
is a nice physical run blocker. Watch him block down on the D-Tackle here (0:01).
He can sometimes get a little choppy in his kickstep. But he meets him at
the pass and stones him easy (0:09). He tries to Cut block here, but the
LB slips past it (0:17). It looks like he is the only one who makes a
block on the left side of the line (0:25). He comes off a little high, and
Seals the D-Tackle to the inside. The DT gets tripped and falls down
(0:33). Okay, not the best start to the game.
to see here, but he stones Gholston almost right off the snap (0:37). He
gets low into the 5-Technique DE, and fights him tooth and nail backwards
until the QB throws (0:46). He shows nice patience waiting for the OLB to
rush. Then he shoves up and helmet butts in one nice violent motion. Then he is
latched onto him moving his great feet (0:56). Then, he powers the
D-End down to the ground with amazing torque in his upper body (1:05). Is
there a better example of heavy hands than that left cross.
is so nice. Watch how he shuffles outside staying so low in his stance.
Then he powers up and into the OLB, and turns him easily. I love how the
OLB tries to chops his hands off of him and shuffle away from the block.
But Fisher keeps moving his feet and powers him to the ground again
(1:11). He gets beat to the outside here, but turns and runs and uses his
great feet and long arms to wash the little fellah down stream (1:18). He
sometimes takes a few plays to warm up, but once he is loose he is a
we switch to the closer side so we get a better angle. He slides through
the traffic nicely, but can't stop the ILB. He did not look good there
(1:25). He plays this with perfect form. Nice kickstep, hand up and inside,
and wait for the speed rusher to get to him. He lets him rush himself out
of the play. Then he takes him out (1:34). He is so strong and physical
that he stops the rush and then drives them into the turf (1:45). This is
one of the reason I see Andy Reid taking a shine to him. That play reminds
me of Jason Peters. He uses his great feet to get himself into position to
use his extraordinary size and strength to pound the defender.
pops outside the TE nicely, and Cuts the D-End easily (1:51). Nice angle
here. He fires into the DT, and gets him moving the wrong way. However,
that is a big man. He spins out of Fisher grip, and somehow finds his a
path to the QB (1:56). Watch this nice power as he powers into the
low DT. He tries to shove him up, but the DT won't budge. Then he spins
and finds his way to the QB (2:06). However, Fisher recovers brilliantly
and shoves him off his rush and almost into the turf again. That is not
just great second effort, but third effort as well.
kicksteps back softly. Then he stops and hammers Gholston as he sees the
Stunt. Then he pops out and pops the big D-Tackle. That is as good an OLT
can do in pass protection (2:15). Notice how the OG misses the Stunt. If
Fisher doesn't jam Gholston up and back with his great heavy hands, that
is a Sack. If he doesn't then dance outside with his great feet to latch
onto the big D-Tackle, then he gets a Sack. With smaller school guys you
have to worry about level of competition sometimes, but that is two great
blocks against two great college players on one play.
this amazing blend of quickness, agility, and feet. He pops outside the
D-End, and then swings back in around him and Seals him. That is
electrifying agility for a power blocker his size (2:24). That block was against
the OLB. He hops with starling quickness outside the TE, and gains the
OLB's outside shoulder. Then he powers him inside with his arms extended (2:32). Guys with his size and strength should not have
such nimble feet.
stalemates the OLB for a second, and then powers him back 7-yards (2:45).
He takes a step back and tries to Cut Gholston, who is a freak athlete himself
(2:54). He makes meeting Gholston at the pass look easy (3:00). Gets under
the smaller rusher, and latches on (3:08). Plays the wide-9 rusher
perfectly (3:16). He is starting to make it look easy against some very
good players in a better division (3:25). Look how smooth and easy he is
in his pedal. His hands are down to low. But you have to love how he drives
the D-End back-asswards over the pile behind him. That was not an
this Seal block. He gets himself a little overextended, but by then the
OLB was driven back about 5-yards (3:33). He is so good at blocking down
on the D-Tackle (3:47). Watch how quickly be burst backwards in his
quickstep. That is phenomenal (3:54). He takes him him right to the
Corner, and then just stops (4:04). He shuffles inside, and stones the
D-End. He is making it look too easy again (4:12). He drives the little
blitzer inside, and actually jams him into two other rushers (4:20). That
is an indescribably great block.
lets the D-End rush himself out of the play, and then latches on and won't
let him go, as the DE has position on him (4:28). He blocks down on the DT
and stones him completely. That is a tough block. You can see him shuffle
to the opposite shoulder of the DT, showing his great blend of nimble feet
and power (4:35). Seals the D-End effortlessly, and then punches him
backwards (4:46). Doubles Gholston nicely (4:53). I like how he pushes him
up and into the OG, so he can get a clean shot at Gholson's ribs (5:02).
Gholston does a nice job splitting the double, but it is too late.
shadows the D-End, who slashes inside on the late stunt. Then he just has
to put his hands up and the DT's rush is done (5:09). Here, he shuffles
nicely out wide, and then kicksteps back. He meets the D-End at the pass,
and almost beats him into the turf again with a single punch (5:16). Just
sit and watch this terrific blend of feet, size, and power (5:26). He gets
a punch in with his outside hand. Then he grabs his inside shoulder, and
uses all the torque in his hips to land a haymaker that nearly stuns
the D-End to the ground. What do you think Andy Reid is thinking when he
watches that block.
gets out to the second level nicely, and latches onto the ILB (5:34). He
gets his long arms into the chest of the long armed rusher, and then
stones him (5:42). I like how he shadows the little speed rusher as the
Back swings out of the backfield between them (5:48). Watch how he gets a little extra low for
Gholson here. Then he pops his helmet up and Gholston
is long out of the play (5:55). Comes off low, and catches the D-End
inside. He slowly starts to move him outside, but the RB cuts back right
into him (6:07). That was not a bad block, but turned into maybe his worst
block of the game.
lets up a little here as it is a blowout and they are running out the
clock. I'd like to see him finish this game better, but I get it. He powers the D-End sideways and up with amazing power.
Then the RB runs
right into him (6:14). Great power Seal on the DT. Driving down (6:19).
Powers the DT up and to the inside. But the DT gets back under him, and
sheds him (6:26). Picks up the outside speed blitzer effortlessly (6:34).
Another effortlessly stalemate (6:42). Well that was a interesting tape.
It showed his great combination of power, size, nimble feet, and agility.
It also showed some flaws. He sometimes struggles to get out on LB out
wide. He also can struggle with powerful squat D-Tackles who don't give
