The Little Ceasars Pizza Bowl, a game no one really cares about, features a potential first-round prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft and a couple of other late-round guys who are likely special team guys in the NFL.
Eric Fisher of Central Michigan is where the money is at in this game. Fisher is a terrific offensive tackle prospect. Former Central Michigan offensive linemen Joe Staley was drafted in the first round, and Fisher looks like he will join that very exclusive fraternity. Fisher is a 6-foot-7, 305-pound athlete who is an excellent pass protector and developing run blocker. The biggest knock on him is his pad-level (that’s always a question on offensive linemen this tall) and his competition. Still even with those questions hearing his name called in Round 1 looks likely. Is he a target for the Giants? I"m not so sure. The Giants have a penchant for drafting players from BCS schools early in the draft, and Fisher is similar to Will Beatty. I think the Giants are more likely to look at a massive interior offensive lineman, or a guy they think can play right tackle next year while he develops into a stud left tackle, but we shall see what happens with Will Beatty.
Safey Jahleel Addae is another draftable prospect, but we’re looking at day three (rounds 4 through 7) for him.
Quarterback Ryan Radcliff looks like he could get a shot as a training camp invite.
