KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Eric Fisher arrived at Kansas City International Airport Friday morning, a little more than 12 hours after the Chiefs selected him first overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Fisher arrived just after 10 a.m., in plenty of time for his introductory news conference at 1 p.m. CT.
Fisher, who went from a relatively unknown player at Central Michigan to the first pick in the draft, said he's excited to be a Chief and is up for the challenge of living up to the expectations of a first-overall pick.
"I'm ready to go. I'm ready to get to work. I think that's what got me here is my work ethic," Fisher said. "I can't wait to start working, working with the line and learning the system."
He says until he lives up to the expectations, he'll just try to keep doing what he knows how to do.
